Here’s what you will need:

  • 9 colors of worsted weight yarn (approx. 3 skeins of each depending on the size afghan you would like)
  • H hook
  • tapestry needle and scissors

Size: The final dimensions of my afghan were 70 in. × 70 in.

Joining Your Hexagons

I have a bunch of rectangular afghans so thought it would be cool to make this one in the shape of a large hexagon (fun!). You can do this too or join them in any shape you’d like. Click here for my step by step tutorial on joining these hexagons with the Join As You Go (JAYGO) Method. If you would like to join these into a hexagon shape and have made the 217 hexagons, you will have 9 hexagons along each side.

Edging Your Granny Afghan

Now that you are all joined you’re ready for your edging. Click here for my Granny Edging pattern that includes filling in the little valleys  between your hexagons.

    Beautiful! Thank you for the lovely tutorial. It is the edging of the hexagon afghan which is tricky. Love your idea of filling the gaps. Lovely colors. 🙂

    Gorgeous, thank you so much for sharing!! I’m currently using the pattern to make a baby blanket. Do you have any pictures of the full finished Afghan? I’d love to see what it looks like at a distance.

      I will have to look through my photos and see if I saved any. I had such a hard time getting a nice shot of the whole thing without having it spread out all over my floor 🙂
