Motif and half-motif (flower hexagon)
How to join hexagons using my method
Instructions to increase blanket size from 28×34″ to any dimensions
I’ve always had a huge love for hexagons, but the Cottage Quilt pattern idea came about when three thought paths crossed each other in my mind.:
1) I started getting obsessed with making half-hexagon motifs.
2) Designing crochet blankets that resemble quilts was a big creative outlet for me.
3) The incredible @sewrayme (sewrayme.co.uk) Instagram feed made me fall in love with floral fabric paired with stripes. <3
So, this design was born! It took me about a year to finally put it all together and it went through a lot of back-to-the-drawing-board phases before I could really write the pattern. Now, all I want to do is add a striped corner on all my hex designs!
This pattern will show you how to add a striped corner to any hexagon blanket if you make the “corner cutout” using half-hexes as the pattern teaches. Have fun with it! The last photo at the bottom of this post shows how you can even make a little “sample” to test hexagon motifs and stripe patterns.
