I've been home sick with a migraine.  Crochet is my go-to cure for everything, so I decided to try the most dizzying pattern I could find, though I don't think my colour choices really did it justice in the nausea-inducing category, but that's ok... it's pretty. ^_^

It's a really neat pattern, actually.  You get stripes without having a gajillion ends to weave in.  You only need to weave in two ends for every ball of yarn you use.

You can find the pattern here: Spiral Hex by Pamapaloza

I changed up the ending a bit... I was running low on the variegated yarn, so instead of ripping back to get the finish suggested, I did a series of shorter and shorter stitches to bring the last two rounds to a point at a corner.  I like it!

I used Bernat Satin in "Florals" (3 balls), and "Sultana" (2 balls), and a 5mm hook. (ETA: it's about 3 feet across) Quite satisfying. ^_^

ETA: I made two more of these!

ETA2: Make that four...

How awesome not to have ends to weave and yet have all that color and pattern!

I also looks like it would be fast!

I like how you did the last round to blend it nicely to a point...this little tips sure make for a nicer and professional looking piece!

I love it, it's so beautiful! Thanks for sharing the pattern also... now I can put this in my ever-expanding queue of projects to crochet! (I just started a chromium star baby blanket)

This blanket is totally cute! I love anything that is not square or rectangle :-)

It is a bit dizzying  Wink but lovely. I can appreciate a pattern where you don't have to weave a ton of ends in. Nice work!

Very pretty!  I really like the looks of it, maybe I'll put it on my list for when I'm a better crocheter. Wink Smiley
