Spiral Hexaround – How are we doing?

img_1385_medium2

I love seeing all your progress on our Spiral Hexaround CAL.  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 ten(10) skeins of 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.    For a good price on Landscapes, I found Walmart’s regular price of $4.47 often beats sale prices elsewhere.  Joann.com 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.

I tried out the motif in Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable, using a J hook, and it measured about 7″ point to point, 6″ flat side to flat side, and weighed about 11 g, so I would say you would get 9 per skein of Unforgettable (maybe 10) so for 37 motifs you will need 5  (five) skeins and the throw will be smaller, about 43″ across.  I am including a pattern for a half-hexagon if you would like to rearrange your motifs into a rectangle.

The pattern is now available for only $5.00 (plus VAT if applicable) but you can get 20% off the price with Coupon Code.  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 20%.  The pattern will be stored in your Ravelry library, and you will receive any updates.  The coupon code is JULIE20 or JULIE 20, and is good for multiple purchases on everything in my Ravelry store.  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 gift of any other single pattern from my Ravelry Store. PM me with which pattern you would like.

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