Ok here's my finished afghan....

I didn't square it off so to speak, so it's not a true rectangle or square. But it's big enough to snuggle under and that's all that matters  Smiley  I really enjoyed making this and I know i'll be making another one in the near future!

It's been awhile since anyone posted in this thread, but I have a question. I really want to make this, but I'd prefer if the end result were a square. Anyone know how to do that? I just got a new queen bed and I'd love to make this for it. And my fiance actually likes it too. So I must do it! Also, if I do a solid color for each hexagon, does anyone know how much yarn it will take? An estimate is ok.

I haven't tried crocheting hexagons yet so unfortunately I can't help... I guess you could crochet granny squares instead of hexagons?

There are a few ways you could go about making a hexagon blanket square.

I made one for my dad for Christmas and totally winged the border in such a way that it filled in the dips.  Basically, I used taller stitches in the dips and shorter stitches on the bumps and gradually filled everything in.  Here's a pic:



I was running out of time when I was making this, and this seemed the fastest route to go.    I had also thought about making half-hexagons and sewing them in on the boxy sides, then adding a border.  This would leave a ripple-type pattern on the other two sides, but that would still look nice, I think.

The size of the hexagons matters, too.  The bigger your hexagon motifs are, the deeper the dips will be, the more creative you'll need to be to make it square.  On the other hand, smaller motifs may mean you have a lot more ends to weave in!

I admire all that can crochet or knit.
This blanket is completely beautiful. *sigh* I envy you.
The colors are wonderful, and it looks like something I'd love to curl up with myself.
