Now for the final reveal and recap for those of you who would like to try your hand at one. I have all the links to the patterns and tutorials here to guide you through.

Granny Hexagon Crochet Pattern
Make 217 hexagons with the granny hexagon crochet pattern here, alternating colors as you work. Do not continue adding a border color around them though because we will be doing that part as we join the together in the next step.
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 granny hexagons with the Join As You Go (JAYGO) Method. In the JAYGO method, you join the hexagons while working the next round of the pattern … not only is it easy, but it also creates this beautiful design between your motifs! 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. I designed this Granny Edging pattern that fills in the little valleys between your hexagons for a pretty and straight edge.
