The Hexagranny Blanket is a lap throw made up of giant hexagons and half hexagons. It uses a large hook and aran weight yarn to make this a fast and fun project; it’ll be flying of your hook in no time! The half hexagons help to create straight edges on either side of the blanket to make it easier to work the edging. Pick three or more shades of your favorite color or mix it up for endless color possibilities!
