I think I've fallen in love with Hexagons!

At least you would think so if you took a look through my craft bag

It started out with this beautiful chunky merino yarn from O-wool.

And a little time winding them into "cakes".

Then I crochet up a ton of chunky hexagons - pinks and greys are my latest favorite colors.

Then I spend hours arranging them in different color patterns.

 And different ombre patterns until I find the color pattern that jumps out to me as perfect.
Mattress stitch to sew hexagons together

Then I spend some time (more than a little, but it's not bad) sewing all the hexagons together. I even created some half hexagons as I don't like the look of holes in my blanket edge.

The end result is so worth it!
