I am hooked on these hexagons. They look amazing, tempting and they are so addictive. The more you look at the pictures , the more you fall in love with them. I have been browsing for hours on Lucy’s site and checked her “hexagon love” articles and admire her pictures. Her generosity in sharing awesome patterns is acknowledged with gratitude.
The patterns are so vibrant and colorful you almost feel compelled to start making your own hexagons while enjoying a cup of your favorite coffee or tea.
I love the fact that before the hexagon shape is formed in the final joining-together round, you start out making these gorgeous flowery circles in three quick rounds. I’ve decided to keep all the centres yellow like daisies, then randomly select the other colours as I go : it’s so satisfying seeing this little colourful yarn-garden begin to grow and bloom. Like yesterday morning when I was Knitting and Nattering and drinking cappuccino in the cafe (yes, it’s a hard kind of life I lead) I manged to turn five little pre-hooked yellow wheels into blooming flowers. Its going to be one heck of a blanket when it’s done. Blooming marvelous I tell you. Source: Hexagon Love

The lovely blanket feature on this article is made of 16 colors.
For this blanket, I am using Rowan Handknit DK Cotton. It should cost in the region of £3.50 per 50g ball in the UK. I am using 16 different colours, although the deep yellow I chose for the centres is now discontinued. Source: Hexagon How-to
