And since so many people seemed interested in making their own, I thought I would share the pattern with you. It starts with a traditional granny hexagon pattern. I am sure there are many variations in how the granny hexagons can be worked, but this is how I do it.
One of the fun parts for me is always picking out the colors. And this was a great opportunity for me to use some of the colors that I have left over from my Kaleidoscopic Afghan.

Granny Hexagon Pattern
With CA, make a magic ring (as an alternative to the magic ring, you can ch 4 and join with a slip stitch in furthest chain from hook to form a ring).
Round 1: Ch 3 (counts as dc), 1 dc in ring, ch 1, *2 dc in ring, ch 1, rep from * 4 more times, join and fasten off — 12 dc.
Round 2: Join CB in the last ch-sp made (I do this so I can start crocheting over those pesky ends as I go), ch 3 (counts as dc), [1dc, ch 1, 2 dc] in same ch-sp, ch 1, *[2dc, ch 1, 2 dc] in next ch-sp, ch 1, rep from * 4 more times, join and fasten off — 24 dc.
Round 3: Join CC in the last ch-sp made, ch 3 (counts as dc), 1 dc in same ch-sp, ch 1, [2dc, ch 1, 2 dc] in next ch-sp, ch 1, *2 dc in next ch-sp, ch 1, [2dc, ch 1, 2 dc] in next ch-sp, ch 1, rep from * 4 more times, join and fasten off — 36 dc.
Weave in the rest of those pesky ends.
So many color combinations!!
Now that we’ve covered the basic granny hexagon pattern! For joining I chose a pretty cream color, also from the Brava Worsted line from KnitPicks. Check out my post here for how to join these hexagons together using the join-as-you-go method.
