Crocheted Hexagon Granny ~ Coming Together!

Oh, I am so excited about this crocheted hexagon granny afghan! It has been such a long time since I crocheted a granny-type afghan, and this one is coming together so quickly using a method that is new to me. The blocks are joined together as part of the last round of crochet on each block, so no sewing at the end! Take a look at my progress...

These are the colors my niece said she liked for her wedding gift afghan, shades of blues, greens and browns. I am finding them so pleasant to work with! All my little circles, which I showed HERE not too long ago, got a round of medium color to turn them into hexagons, and now they are all going to get a round of dark while being joined to their neighbors.

This method of joining as you go is something I had seen lots of other crocheters do, but until now I had not tried the method myself. Sometimes the prospect of having to sew lots of blocks together keeps me, and others too I am sure, from choosing to make a particular pattern. This method can be used on any kind of granny type block to join as the last round is stitched, thus saving the sewing at the end. I'm loving it!

Have you ever used this joining method? Do you love it too?

If you are interested in this hexagon granny pattern, it is available free from Lisa over at Polka Dot Cottage, or for a small fee you can receive it as a PDF to save to your ipad or other device for easy take-along crocheting!

Happy Stitching!

  • If you click on the link in this post, it takes you right to the page where you can order the pdf file, or if you read a little further on, Lisa provides a link to the stages of the pattern that she posted on her blog which you can use for free.

  • FYI, no, there is NO reference to any free pattern anywhere.

  • Hi Valerie! Thanks for writing! Lisa may have removed the direct links to the posts where she shows the different stages of making this afghan. But if you go to her site and put 'hexagon blanket' into the search bar at the top of her page, you may be able to look through her original posts and see how to make the blanket. I think purchasing the pdf file of the pattern is well worth the price though!

    Hope this helps!
