6 Sided Afghan

13 posts in this topic

I saw an afghan on ebay that I just fell in love with. It has 6 sides - does anyone know what this pattern may be called or where I might find a pattern like it? It is one of those "must have" patterns:blush

I know CPC has a pattern for an eight sided one but I can't remember a six sided one. Can you post a link to the listing on ebay? Maybe some members here can give you some advice about how to design your own.

The link is working now. The afghan looks beautiful. This is a link to how to do a six sided granny. I don't know if that would help you. I'm going to try to find the link to the octagon afghan I mentioned in my previous post.

I can't find my octagon pattern. :eek I know I didn't throw it away. I'll have to keep looking for it. But I also found this : it is for a six sided flower afghan. I also found this one it is for a five sided granny. Both of these are at Marlo's corner.

Thanks Karin - did you find your pattern? I hate when you know you have a pattern and can't find it. I am looking for my Sew On Fire pattern with all the corrections printed out and do you think I can find it??:eek

Here's the link again for the 6 Sided Afghan on ebay - hope it works. I don't know why I can't get it working.

Is this what you are looking for?

Yes - that was the pattern for the Sew on Fire and the corrections I was looking for:hug I just printed them out again - thank you for saving me the trouble of finding my copy.

 

Now if I can just figure out what the pattern is called for the above mentioned ebay afghan my day will be complete. Did the link work for anyone besides Karin?:think

 

I guess I need the challenge of finding this pattern.....it takes my mind off of the fact that today is the anniversary date of when a drunk driver severely injured my daughter:(

The link is working fine.

This isn't the same pattern and it's octagon:

I also would take a square, like one from this afghan and just make it bigger. This is a snowflake which is what your eBay one appears to be:

Here's a free granny hexagon afghan. Just do one motif and keep going:

You'll probably find more if you go through CPC both afghans and squares. Remember names don't always tell what they are:

You can use the hexagon granny and make it solid by crocheting in the stitches instead of ch and skip. To make a basic hexagon, you start with a circle with 6 sc in rnd 1, 12 sc in rnd 2, 18 sc in rnd 3, 24 sc in rnd 4. Rnd 5: ch 3 (=1st dc), dc in 3 sc, [ch 2 (corner), dc in 4 sc] all around, ch 1 hdc to ch 3 (= last corner). Each rnd after, you ch 3, dc over hdc (1/2 corner) dc in each dc and [2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc] in corner sp, 2 dc in 1st ch 1, ch 1, hdc to ch 3.

OK - I found this afghan (the same one as ebay) on a knitting forum but can't seem to find this pattern.

 

Thanks Ellie13 and Empress Busy Bee - the links are great and ellie's suggestions are terrific:hook

I found a pattern for this Hexagon Afghan. Two girls from another forum wrote out the pattern and sent it to me. Crocheters are such nice people, aren't they?:cheer I can't wait to give it a try.
