Crocheted flowers and hexie motifs are a perfect match. You love these worked up in a rainbow of colors - just join them together for an afghan full of gorgeous blooms.
If joining's not your thing, these motifs stand on their own as placemats, too. Add a few extra rounds with your final color until you have the size you need.
My very first afghan square design! I needed to design a 12" afghan square for a collaboration with another designer, but for the life of me I couldn't come up with a design. Then it hit me! Cables, I need to design a cabled afghan square to stay true to myself. That's when the Cabled Blooms afghan square was born. I love the solid version, but admit that the multi-colored version is great as well. The design includes a couple plains rounds of single crochet at the end that you can omit if you'd like.
Do you like hexagons? This beautiful hexagon pattern is great for making blanket, pillows, bags and more. You can use them to create a lot of stunning patterns by joining together. I made this hexagon in two ways. I found that this hexagons have different look when making them in solid and two-tone. To make these hexagons I used special stitch called front post bobble stitch (fpbobble). This stitch adds 3D effect and beautiful texture to the hexagon pattern.
Although one may think that non-square motifs aren’t great flower afghan block ideas, that's certainly not true. To this point, here is a flower-themed hexagon that can make an afghan in a honeycomb fashion. Moreover, it gives any blanket a lovely, 3D texture that will be a hit.
These little hexagons has a pretty popcorn flower center to give it texture. It also features some Moss Stitch like detail.
This is a 5-in-1 pattern for 1 flower and 4 ways to make a hexagon around it. The flower stays the same throughout the pattern, but the hexagon changes in size and style.
The hexagons can be used for cushion covers, blankets, bags, clothes, etc. - the only limit is your imagination! You can use yarn made from any fibre and in any thickness for making these hexagons.
