Hexagons - Komb Afghan

My color choices were a “shot in the dark”. I knew that Becca wanted green and blue tones, but she mentioned accent colors too. I wanted a neutral border yarn, and I chose the M01 (khaki with light blue) as an experiment. For the main color, I am using M20, which has some rich green tones with some yellows and reds. While I still have much more to knit, I feel pretty confident about the yarn choice. The quality of yarn is good – this Jojoland is beautiful!

In between holiday celebrations and meals, I will be making a few more hexagons, and (hopefully) working on Kris’s anniversary pullover. I managed to fit in two small knit gifts too, which I am hoping to get a modeled photo of over the holiday…

Enjoy your holidays!!

    Lolly,

    i am loving this afghan. The colors are stunning. Where did you purchase the yarn and pattern? Happy Holidays!!!

  16. amy

    Wow nice yarn choice.

    I looked at the pattern and it says the hexagons are knitted on straight needles, is that right? I can’t figure out how you could do that.

  17. Felicia

    Merry Christmas :)

  18. del

    I am in awe of those hexagons. They’re really gorgeous. Can’t wait to see that afghan all done.

  22. Kyle

    OK your post just made me buy the pattern – I have to make this blanket (someday!)

    :)

  23. Beth

    The afghan looks simply gorgeous!

  24. Péitseoga

    Oh wow, I absolutely love it! i’ve been dreaming about a honeycomb blanket for ages! i thought i would probably crochet it but this looks better! and the variegated and marbled yarn is a brilliant idea, it makes it much more elegant than using plain colours! How many hours did the 9 hexagons take you? How are they sewn together?
