I am playing with this block some more to see what other configurations I can come up with I am kind of liking this but I am a little stuck as to how the next row works out I have torn it out 3 times already
I used my scraps of vintage size 10 and knit cro-sheen thread and size 6 steel crochet hook. I am trying to use up all my vintage scraps at the moment as we are moving and downsizing and I have way to much stuff in my craft room as the next house is only half the size of this one.
These are made using a continuous chain method so the entire block only has 11 threads to finish. I made color changes every round to add variety to each block. For a size reference the individual circles are the size of a USA dime. But I could have used any yarn as long as the hook was the right size to keep tensions correct.
So I found a half done afghan bedspread weight thread ruffly 1930's blanket at a thrift store. The original maker couldn't keep the tension even so I took it apart and sorted all the hexes and decided what I could do with the three sizes of hexes. This is one of the things I have made thus far. I have also made three size 5 kid shirts and one adult small shirt. I still have enough hexes to make 1 more skirt and 1 more shirt both adult sizes. what do you think I am happy with it and I am happy with the skirt and think it looks real nice on. Update there is no lining on the skirt that is just the slip I picked for the day. I don't like to line skirts that way I have the option of color change. I wanted graphic patterns that day. If I want just soft color I would have picked a pink, white, or ecru slip.
this is the large and small size there is one in between too
this is the adult shirt I made took a photo this morning
