There used to be a couple of threads going where people were making hexagon blankets. They seem to have died out. I am starting one today anyone else making one?

I'm working on a Galaxy afghan right now. i don't usually crochet but my knitting hands are hurting and it would appear I can still crochet without pain.

anyways, I have all the blue and purple done. I'm halfway through the pink combo ones. I'm thinking i'll grab the yellow on the way home so I can start from the center and work out...thus enhancing the feeling of completion....

No, I was merely reading the Muggle magazines. I do love knitting patterns.

how big are you making your hexagons?

I did one that was hexagonal once about 15 years ago, but after three or four rows it was hard to match them up to each other without them losing shape - so I ended up with a lot of small hexagons being pieced together

I made it for my brother - it was actually a dungeons and dragons topographical "map" for him and his friends to sit on the floor to play - different colors for different terrain, etc

looked funky when it was done, AND it was fun!

my, my... i'm started again yesterday using thread and a 2mm hook, so my hexagons are about  1,5in  from side to side, 2,3in from point to point. i guess i'll need a lot more than 105 then... i plotted my colours and there are 120 unique hexagons. i decided to do all possibilities instead of trying to match the colours in a pretty way.

i'm not sure i like this:

i like the colours individually (except for the yellow, i wanted a lighter shade). i like the central hexagon, and some others. but i'm not sure i like the way they look together.
they're also very twisty:

i thought they would straighten up when assembled but they don't, not totally. the points still stand up. i think i'll give it a time and think of something else to do with the thread.

colorlessblue, maybe if you tried doing every other row or so without any increases it won't get warped like that. it happens to me when i make circles sometimes and that can do the trick if you balance it out well enough

Everybody likes pink. People who think otherwise are in denial.
