i was inspired by one of the older posts on this thread (by myrLegacy) and decided to try a small hexagon afghan from just four different yarns... i think it's big enough for a baby....  i like how it turned out and how fast it moved, now i'm working on a huge patchwork one!

I have the same problem...
I am also curious about how long it took to finish after the crochet was done?

It's very pretty Smiley

I'm working on a hexagon afghan right now and I'm worried about how it's going to go together.

The pattern I have calls for a border the whole way around the outside edge, to give it a 'finished' look.

That's really cool! It seems like a good stashbuster project, for someone who likes to combine yarn types and colours. I've been planning on doing some type of square blanket, but I might go with this style instead. Great job!

woops! i haven't had any time to be on craftster in like forever!

could be a moot point by now, but it only took a few hours (in total...  15 minutes here, 30 minutes there) to put it together.

after i finished each hexagon i left a yarn tail about as long as four sides of the hexagaon, and used the tails to sew them together. 

if you hold them together, it's pretty easy to see where they match up and how to sew them.  g'luck!
