I love this hexagon ‘square’ it works up so quickly! Could easily be joined together to make a scarf or a beautiful baby blanket, the options are limit less!
And its a great way to use up those little balls of yarn that you just can’t bring yourself to part with!
Ok so there is a bit of a story that has to be told with this on. The whole reason this one came into to being was that I was having a horrible time (like throw it out the window and never attempt another square again) working on the Lacy Flower Granny Square and so just started playing around and this little gem was born.
This is what I made using this Water Lily hexagon . I simply used a SC join and worked my way around. I have not yet found the type of handles that I am wanting for the bag. Oh, and I know the colors are not exactly ‘adult’ but my toddler daughter will love it. More than likely she will carry her older brothers hot wheels around in it.
