Hexa-ghan

By Verybusymonkey

Here is a tutorial for how I made my hexa-ghan blanket.



This blanket could easily be adapted for any yarn/gauge
you want. It would make an excellent sock blanket and
theres NO SEAMING NEEDED yeah!

Materials Used:
US Size 10 dpns (youll need four dpns for this project)
About 900 yards of Worsted weight yarn (color A)
About 900 yards of Worsted weight yarn (color B)

First row of hexagons (all hexagons have 15 sts per side)


Hexagon A, row 1: Cast-on 90 sZtches, 30 on each of three dpns, work
hexagon instrucZons below - All hexagons are worked using the same
instruc9ons (only the cast-on/pick-up numbers vary)
Row 1: (p15, pm, p15)* repeat two more Zmes
Row 2 (Decrease row): (k to 2 sts before marker, k2tog, k to 2 sts before
end of needle, k2tog)* repeat two more Zmes

ConZnue alternaZng the even- and odd-numbered row instrucZons unZl the
blanket is the desired width/length. I worked my proto-type in the color/pafern
below but customize however you want! Can nish o the edging with a single-
crochet border, but it will look nice without it as well. Enjoy!
