I am making the Hexagram Motif blanket from the Mollie Makies Crochet book. It's my first real crochet project. (Nothing like jumping straight into a big project!)
Anyway...I'm using RedHeart Soft yarn (100% acrylic so it's super washable). I've got about 1/3 of the hexes done and I started to think about the assembly. Here are my questions...
1) should I block before putting them together?
2) would it make sense to throw the hexes into lingerie bags and pop them into the washing machine?
3) they're all pretty uniform in size and shape already. Do I need to pin them down?
4) should I throw caution to the wind, assemble them as is, and hope for the best?
Here's a couple of completed hexes so you can see what I'm working with. They're much larger than they should be because I didn't read the instructions first, to know what size hook & yarn to get. Because that's the smart way to do things.
