Ta-dah! Hexagon Baby Blanket

My hexagon baby blanket is finished - woop!

You may remember the sneak peeks of this blanket here and here and now it's time to show off the finished article :-)
Once I had new wool from the shop it came together pretty quickly. I turned all the circles into hexagons using the aqua coloured wool like I planned and then I edged the blanket with the 3 different colours I had used to make up the circles. I'm pretty pleased with how it ended up...

...although unfortunately I didn't find this tutorial for non-crinkly edges before it was too late so my edging is most definitely crinkly - even after blocking (although better after blocking than before!). I granny trebled into each gap - even the ones right beside each other where the hexagons join and that's what has caused the crinkling.

Here's the full blanket made up of 25 hexagons, joined on the go (thanks Lucy!) with 3 rounds of granny treble edging.

I'm hoping it's the perfect size for a baby blanket for capsules and buggy's. I measured it against one of our favourite baby blankets and it's pretty much the same size so hopefully my friend thinks so too!

    I've had so many lovely comments about the colours that I am convinced they were a good choice!

    Stace - I tried replying by email but it bounced back so here's the message...Good luck with learning to crochet :-) There's some great links on the Adventures in Crochet page on my blog - where there are tutorials for granny squares etc...I also found YouTube quite helpful so I could watch over and over how people did the stitches! Let me know if there's anything I can do to help!
