Hexagons Galore!

I am finally frantically catching up with my commitment to the Hexagon Group Swap.  It did not dawn on me (although I knew when I signed up) that I had to make about 18 Hexagons.....at least I have until October 31st to finish, which is no problem.

For the people who get two, I am coordinating the colors from their preferences which I hope gives their afghan a more blended look rather than patchwork.  Most of the patterns I have found are for smaller Hexagons, so am having to improvise the rest.  I did find that if the pattern calls for 2dc, ch1, 2dc in each corner not to do it!  Makes it very wonky when it gets larger as you expand.  Better to trim those early corners down to 1dc, ch2, 1dc so the later rows will not be too long and curly.

  2. I usually do 3 DC in each corner. Well, I don't know how that will effect the shape. Maybe that explains why I can do hexagons...
