Greyscale African Flower Hexagon Blanket & Cushion

Greyscale African Flower Hexagon Blanket & Cushion

I though I’d share one of my latest crochet projects with you as I’ve been a bit quiet lately working on some new designs.  I recently made a massive greyscale African Flower Hexagon blanket & cushion as a custom order.

I’m sure you all know this pattern – its free! – as its such a pretty and really popular little design.  I’ve seen loads of really colourful blankets using this pattern so when the customer requested greys I was curious to see how it would work out.

The blanket turned out absolutely gorgeous!  I was sad to post it off to its new home!

The customer chose the yarn colours which were:

  • Hayfield Bonus DK – Cream
  • Hayfield Bonus DK – Light Grey Mix
  • Stylecraft Special DK – Grey
  • Sylecraft Special DK – Graphite

I made loads of hexagons (so many hexagons!!!) using the grey colours in random order and edged all of them in cream.  As the customer wanted straight edges I made some half hexagons and filled in the edges on the pointy sides.

Then, I added a fancy border around to finish the blanket off…

And made a pretty cushion to match…

I’m so pleased with how this project turned out!  If you’re interested in the join-as-you-go method I used, let me know in the comments below or send me a message, and if I get enough requests I’ll get a tutorial up for you all.

Hope you are working on happy crochet projects and getting close to a Ta Da! moment!  If you haven’t tried this pattern before I do recommend it – it’s just lovely!

Happy Hooking!
