WIP Wednesday – snowflake blanketย 

I know, I know, I should really finish this but I just wanted to show you the edging I was thinking of doing for this blanket. 

First off, I have finished all the hexagons and half hexagons I need. I really love the straight side edges and I’m so glad I went with it. 


Still in serious need of blocking but I’m getting there ๐Ÿ™‚ 

So I looked into my knitting and crochet bible (this book is just so great!) and I found an edging that I think will go great with the general feel of the blanket. 


What do you guys think? If you have other suggestions I’d be glad to hear them as well ๐Ÿ™‚

In the mean time, happy crocheting everyone!

Half hexagons pattern

Happy Wednesday readers!

I have finished all my full hexagons for my snowflake afghan so that’s a pretty big win! I also came up with a pattern for a half snowflake and thought I could share with you. 

Abbreviations:

Slip stitch – sl st

Chain – ch

Single stitch – sc 

Double stitch – dc

Popcorn stitch – 4 dc into the next ch space, remove hook from working loop and insert hook through top of first of the 4 dc, pick up working loop and draw loop through the top of first sc. 

Ch 6 – join with a sl st to the first chain to form a ring 

Ch 1 – sc 8 in the ring – turn 

Ch 5 – *dc in next sc, ch 2* repeat 6 more times – turn 

Sl st into the 2 ch gap – popcorn stitch in the next 2 ch gap (ch 3 as the first dc), ch3 – *popcorn stitch, ch 3* repeat 5 more times – turn

Ch 4 – *4 dc in the next 3ch gap, ch1* repeat 5 times – dc in the top of the last popcorn stitch – turn

Sl st into the 1 ch gap – ch 3, 2 dc into the same 1 ch gap – *ch 2, dc in the next 1 ch gap, ch 1, dc into the same 1 ch gap, ch 2, 3 dc in the next 1 ch gap, ch 3, 3dc in the same 1 ch gap* repeat once – ch 2, dc in the next 1 ch gap, ch 1, dc into the same 1 ch gap, ch 2, 3 dc in the next 1 ch gap

Fasten off
The last round sounds a bit complicated but it’s what makes the shape of the hexagon and you do get the hang of it pretty fast ๐Ÿ™‚ 


Hopefully I have all my blocks joined next week ๐Ÿ™‚
