loops & threads® sweet snuggles™ crochet hexagon blanket

This fun geometric blanket is the perfect touch for a modern themed baby room. Crocheted with Sweet Snuggles™ it’s super soft and crochets up quickly. Don’t let the color changes intimidate you, you’ll only be working with one color at a time and the new color will always be waiting for you in the right spot when it’s time to switch to the next color.
Step 1

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: Width = 54” (137cm)

GAUGE: 5 dc = 4”(10cm), 2 rows = 3”(7.5cm); save time and check your gauge

PATTERN NOTES:

  • Hexagon is worked the round, but is turned at the end of each round, as if working in rows.
  • On the 2nd and 3rd rows of the multi-color sections,  when you reach a color change, drop the color you have been working and pick up the next color, pulling it up to the height of the current row to work the ch stitch. In these sections use a separate ball for each side of the hexagon, you will only be working with one color at a time. Download the schematic to see a visual guide of where the colors are placed in the blanket.
