Crochet Hexagon Blanket – Progress Report 1

I’m making good progress with my crochet hexagons. They don’t take long to make, so I can finish two or three when I find myself with a bit of free time. I’ve crocheted 42 hexagons so far.

I added two more colors of Shelter yarn, Thistle, which is purple, and Button Jar, which is green. They make the palette cooler and darker.

I’m still unsure how these will come together, but I’m not worried about it, because making them is so much fun. And the more hexagons I make, the more options I’ll have!

  1. The palette that you developed is stunning. And it’s wonderful that the name of the yarn connotes the purpose of the finished object. Your blanket is going to be a treasure.

  2. Thank you, Karen. I’m really excited about it.

  3. I too have been looking for a long time to make a granny blanket for my son. I never even considered Shelter, but now that I’ve seen your hexagons – wow! I’m totally there. I’ve used Shelter before and I LOVE the colors and weight, but never thought to put them all together. You’re absolutely right – those colors work beautifully together and it’ll be a lovely, durable and light blanket! Thanks, again!

  4. Thank you, Bobbie! Can’t wait to see your hexagons!

  5. This project is so wonderful, it has inspired me to learn how to crochet (which I have been meaning to do for quite some time – It looks like I just needed the right inspiration)! I taught myself this weekend, and now on to the hexagons! Love it! Thanks so much for sharing this pattern!

  6. Wow, Nova, that’s great to hear! Have fun with your hexagons!

  7. Hello,

    do you have more progress reports posted somewhere? How did you end up joining all the hexagons together?

  8. Kriystyn, I’m afraid I haven’t made more progress on my blanket. To attach the hexagons, hold them with right sides facing and slip stitch through the outermost sides of the edge stitches.

  9. Hello – I am curious to know whether you finished the hexagon blanket? I am using your pattern and will be linking to it in my next blog posting. I initially started my blanket with a 2 round hexagon (very similar to your first two rounds) but hated having to wing it with join as you go in the second round. A search led me to your pattern and it was a hallelujah moment once I hooked my first hexagon. Thank you for sharing the pattern! Your work is gorgeous. xxxx

  10. Que devient la CROCHET HEXAGON BLANKET ? Quel tour final avez-vous fait ?
    Toujours dans les en-cours ? (je connais…).
    Elle est tellement belle !
    Courage et à bientôt.

  11. Non, je n’ai pas encore fini. J’espère y revenir un jour. Merci!
