I wasn't sure whether to go with a whole mix of colours using up all my spare wools or for a trendy tonal one. Of course then I couldn't decide between blue (my go to colour) or brown (would go with my sofa) and then when I walked into Stitch Solihull last Thursday and saw these colours all sitting together I knew they were the ones.
I got the pattern from http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/hexagon-howto.html and it really is very easy (I only taught myself to crochet last year and I am managing just fine and am even joining them as I go to have minimal stitching upon completion! get me!).
Just in case you can't tell the blanket is actually made up of hexagons - here is my sample one:
If you would like to make your own I recommend both the instructions and the lovely Bergere De France Aran wool - if you are quick it's on offer at Stitch Solihull for £3.50 a ball during all of September - I bought 10 balls which hopefully should be enough. Anyway that's it for now I am off to make another hexagon and then start the second Wallander.
Thanks for looking - hexagonally happy from Solihull
