The best thing about crocheting this hexagon afghan is getting to play with different color combinations. The pattern chose a palette of greens, reddish browns, and blues but this pattern would also work up great in a more monochromatic color scheme. The creative options are endless!
For this project you will need: HOOK: 5 mm hook or size H hook for the US YARN: All the scrap yarn colors were worsted weight yarn 4 ply US, 10 ply AU Also the Off white color I used in between as well. I was able to get 10 rows of Off white before I had to change to a new skein. I used 2 and a 1/2 skeins of it, but I didn’t make a border. If you wish to, then I would grab a third. I didn’t want to use much of this color because it's a scrap yarn afghan and don't want you to have to go get more yarn. About the color pattern Since this pattern uses scrap yarn, I won't be telling you which colors to use. I used this color wheel to help me organize my color choices. I've never been a fan of the mixed color of scrap yarn afghans so I decided to do mine in a more organized fashion starting with my Maroons, Reds, Oranges, Browns, Yellows, Golds, Greens, Blues, Purples, Pinks and back to the beginning of the color list. Feel free to go with what feels right to you. This Jagged Scrap yarn afghan is made using a stitch I discovered while playing around with yarn. I don't know why all my discovered stitches mostly use two stitches to create and this one is no different. Lol. But other than the butterfly stitch this one is surely the most easiest one to recreate! Let me take you step by step on how to make this stitch so you can use it in making your own scrap yarn afghan to use up some of your left over wool.
Instead of the typical granny square afghan pattern, check out this Granny Hexagon Afghan, which uses hexagons instead of crochet granny squares. The fun shapes and patterns create an eye-catching design that will brighten up your home. Use this crochet afghan as a throw on your couch or for the warmth you desire in the winter around the fire. Keep it laying around during the spring months, too, since the hexagons create a floral look that is a reminder of the new life in springtime. This crochet granny square afghan would look stunning in any color scheme you picked.
This crochet blanket is made lengthwise using double crochets and chains. My favorite type of pattern that's SUPER easy but looks like it was a little complex to make! During the cold Winter months when the sun barely shines through the clouds, I'm always drawn to shades of blue and brown. The slight lace of the stitches make this blanket on the lighter side but it's still heavy enough to keep your legs and feet warm!
My love for making crochet afghans has grown a lot over the past year. I released a variety of styles in 2019, but I hadn't made a hexagon afghan before so I thought that should be next on my list of projects. The Succulent Spring Hexagon Afghan was designed while traveling to visit crochet friends a couple months ago. It ended up being the perfect project for the airport and plane rides as I didn't have to carry around a half finished afghan all at once. I packed the finished hexagons in my luggage and kept the pieces I was working on in my carry-on.
"I went with blues and taupe for a beachy feel, something I have been craving during this cold. But you can use as many or few colors as you like to create your own custom palette. And when you carry the yarn along the side, covering it up later with the border, you don't end up with a ton of ends to weave in either! Shown in the pattern is the throw size, but stitch and row counts are included for Baby to California King!"
