I was goofing around with some yarn the other day, and came up with what I thought was a kind of neat, yet simple, hexagon motif.  Being such a big geek, I immediately thought of Settlers of Catan.  I'd already made 2 Catan blankets, so I thought I'd do something new!

Here is the bag:

I thought I'd use it as a project bag.  It easily fits 4 balls of Bernat Satin (the yarn the bag is made of!)

It's made up of 19 of these hexagons:

1 pale yellow (desert)
3 grey (ore - mountains)
3 red (brick - er... bricks!)
4 dark green (wood - forests)
4 light green (wool - sheep grazing)
4 dark yellow (grain - wheat)

Here is the pattern for the hexagon (lazy version) :
R1: *dc, ch1* 6 times
R2: *3dc in ch1 sp, ch1* 6 times
R3: *3dc, ch1, 3dc all in ch1 sp* 6 times
R4: 1dc in each previous dc, *dc, ch1, dc* in ch1 sp (8 dc per side)
R5: same as R4 (10 dc per side)

(If that didn't make sense to you, try the extended version)

I joined them (on the right side) with sc stitches, using a tan yarn

For the handle, I really winged it, so, in a general sort of way, this is what I did:

Starting at the corner (see the pic), slst, sc, sc, hdc, hdc, then dc in every stitch thereafter.  At the valley between two motifs, I did at 3dctog.  For the handle that isn't directly attached I used the chainless foundation technique to continue with the dc stitches until it was as long as I wanted, then joined up on the other side, reversing the pattern of stitches at the beginning.

Turn, and do the same stitch pattern, though working dc's into the chainless-foundation-dc's from before.

Turn, slst, then sc in every stitch, slst the last.  cut the yarn, weave in ends.

Join the yarn to the underside of the handle, and do a sc in the bottom of every exposed stitch of the first row. (I did this mostly because I accidentally didn't join the bottom of the first chainless-foundation stitch, and this seemed to be the easiest way to fix that... also, it balances the row of sc on the top of the handle.)

It's a really fun game, you should check it out!  My friends and I play the Cities and Knights expansion (mostly because one of my friends has the Deluxe 3D version of that. lol)
