If I didn't loathe putting squares and stuff together I would be all over this like white on rice. I love the look.

That's the great part about this pattern!  You don't have to sew the hexagons together - you join them as you go.  I don't think I would have made it if I had to sew each hexagon together at the end.  Nope, with this pattern you connect the hexagons in the last round by working the chain stitch around its neighboring hexagons. 

It sounds confusing, but it's super easy and SO MUCH BETTER than whip stitching the squares together (and not to mention, it's a lot stronger structurally).

You should try it!

I love Rowan's cotton.  That afghan has to feel so soft.
