Irresistible Cotton Yarn

Cotton yarn love
By total accident I happened to buy a whole bag of cheap and beautiful cotton yarn this summer when grandmother was visiting. I could not resist the pretty colours and it was time to try to make my first hexagon! I found a good description online and started to crochet round, and round… and I couldn’t stop. Hexagon crocheting is as fun and addictive as I expected.

I love the colours of this cotton yarn!

I love this kind of project where you can work in your own pace, you get result rather quickly but you know the end is out of sight for now. Not sure how many projects I have that is UFO’s, but this one will stay UFO for quite a while. Not even sure how many hexagons I will make, or how big (or what) this project will become… But who cares? It’s super fun!

Just take a look and see if you can resist these:

I thought I’d make another ripple afghan when I bought the yarn, but when I came home I changed my mind. I have wanted to try another kind of granny square pattern for a long time, and this yarn is perfect for the hexagons.

What have you been wanting to try for a long time? Maybe this is the week for it…

    So pretty the way these are coming together. I like the step by step pictures.

  2. I love to crochet. I have a few UFOs that just need finishing, but mostly I finish my projects now. MOSTLY! :)

    These colors are lovely and they remind me of sweet treats, like cupcakes. I have always wanted to try the hex. I’ve been keeping two crochet projects going at a time for a while now… I have a blanket that I’m crocheting, which is going to take a lot of time, so I call it my background project. Then, I find small things to work on to give me the satisfaction of completing something. I’m also trying to use up some of my stray yarn, so all of this is super satisfying.

    I look forward to updates on your hexagon project!

    Oooo I love yarn! And those colors are great! I have been obsessed with making crochet African flower hexagons, which may or may not eventually get made into a blanket. :) They are so fun and portable, and you can make so many different color combinations!

    Super-cool! Are you attaching them as you go? If so, great idea!

    Like them too.
    Like specially that you crochet them together as soon as one more is finished.
    From tiny blanket to small blanket to whatever whenever.

    Just don’t like sewing in the many yarn endings.

    Have a fun day!

    like Robin, i love that you are joining as you go…did you just figure this out? if so, please share!! it will be beautiful WHENEVER you finish it. i think the best part of connecting as you go is that when you finish the crochet, the blanket will be done too! (none of that…oh now i have to stitch them all together part…)

    At my local charity shop I am known for buying all their yarn. Nothing is left behind when I go in. A few months back (possibly a year, I had a baby at some point after it) I bought this massive load of cream yarn for pittance and now I’m hoping to finally make a cream lacey crochet blanket out of it. Just bought a book on granny squares. Feel very encouraged by your efforts so I might start tomorrow. It’s a king size bed too (that’s not so great) :/ hope I can do as well as you.
