Spiral Hexaround CAL – Nov/Dec 2016

The election results are in!  Our winner is:



So we will CAL to Spiral Hexaround for the next couple of months.  Please follow along on my Ravelry board and Facebook CAL group for like-minded stitchers.  (Facebook search “Crochet Along with JulieAnny.” )

This is a fun and addictive hexagon worked in the round without joining after each round to keep the integrity of the long gradients in the color-changing yarn.  I used Lion Brand Landscapes with a K hook, but you can use your favorite yarn.  Other suggestions are Lion Brand Amazing, Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable, Red Heart Boutique Treasures, Noro Silk Garden, Noro Kureyon, Knitpicks Chroma.  Please let me know your favorites.  For a good price on Landscapes, I found Walmart’s regular price of $4.47 often beats sale prices elsewhere. has frequent sales, Amazon has everything, and please check out all my affiliate links to make your online purchase, and I will get a small commission.

To download the pattern, go to the pattern page on Ravelry, hit Buy it Now, and input the following Coupon Code where indicated.  Hit apply, and the price will come down to zero.  The pattern will be stored in your Ravelry library, and you will receive any updates.  The coupon code is good from now until Nov. 6, 2016, and is HEXAROUND.  Please make a Ravelry project page, and share progress and photos with the group.  If you post a finished photo of your afghan to your Ravelry project page I will give you a coupon for any other single pattern from my Ravelry Store.

Can’t wait to see what you all come up with!

Row 11 with leaves snugged up to stalk using the loose ends of your color B.  Take your darning needle and as you bury your ends bring the leaves snug with the stalk.  You want it to mimic the long stalks with leaves in the rest of the design.
