Hello my crochet buddies:

 

If you need a change between crocheting different sizes squares for friendship afghans then this is the CAL for you..

 

In this CAL we will crochet the AFRICAN FLOWER HEXAGON and we will roak others that join this cal too... This ways when they have enough of the hexagons they too can put together a different kind of friendship afghan...

 

What ya think??? Besides these are so addicting and you will use your scrap stast up so fast you will be looking for more yarns... the color combinations are endless... too...

 

If you join please PM me your full mailing address so others can send you a hexagon or more for your ghan...

 

So with out further delay here is the link for the pattern over at raverly and then also a tutorial as well...

I will try to join! My not be able to send as many hexagons as I wish, but will do so between projects! Are you going to keep a list of who is joining? And don't forget, you don't have to make a friendshipgan, you can make bags, pillows, ect. out of the hexagons.

Hello LilyFlower:

 

Wow this is good a good start.... Dont worry sweetie you can make for now as you wish and when you can just let me know as I will keep a list of the members joining here and when you ready to roak a hexagon you let me know...

 

And yes its true with this motif you can make pillows, bags, afghan, totes, scarf, and even matching hat and so much more so the possibilities are endless...

Lots of color choices and combinations ....

 

hugs

Lillibet

Do you use a "H" hook for this?

I ended up using a J hook to end with the 6 inch square. I had some trial and error with different size hooks to get the size hex I needed. I crochet fairly tightly...so if you do too, try a tester with the J and see how you do.

I would love to join this lillibet! I will pm you my info. I am doing the swap over on ravelry too and love this pattern!

Dear Lily Flower:

 

I dont like that part either but what i do is i leave longer tails and i crochet over them in the next round and then all i got to do is cut the tiny tail the rest in already crocheted inside...

 

give that a try

hugs

Lillibet

I do that too! BUt I end up with 3 ends each time because I can't get 2 hidden well nd the 3rd is just the normal one to weave in!

 

does anyone have a specific color(s0 they are looking for? Or a color scheme? (Primary, neon, ect.)

Dear Sarisue:

 

Who ever joins this CAL can roak others that also join in this swap this way we can gather up more motifs faster and different colors etc.

 

As for the magazine it came in maybe you would like to contact laura herself over on raverly and she can tell you better.

She is not taking the credit for the pattern she does give the credit where its due she posted her variation of the pattern which is what we are doing.

 

I hope i've been of help

Lillibet

Evelyn if you checked out the tutorial link it will tell you the aprx size

and of course the hook most used for this is the H but since not every one crochets the same gauge you might have to up a size or down a size.

 

I hope this has helped.

I'm thinking about joining, those hexagons are gorgeous. The problem I am going to have is joining them. Is there a diagram? Can they be whipstitched or are they join as you go?

I saw a two gorgeous pillows made out of this pattern. One was all white hexagons and the other was white but with a colored center (each a different color). I'm thinking this might be a fun CAL to join. I've been wanting to do these for a while. I'll try one out tomorrow and then decide for sure.
