It’s still pretty warm here in Florida, but I’m working on the Fall Feeling with this new project. I had an urge to crochet and found this loden green yarn in stash as well as the brown. It’s woolease from Lion Brand so is nice and sturdy and washable – perfect for a throw.
As for the colors, I don’t know why I bought 10 balls of this green. It’s a pretty color, but I sure can’t wear it as a sweater – it makes me look sick. The brown, left over from earlier projects, is called Mink Brown and is a really lovely flecked and “fibery” color. Again, it’s not a good color for garments on me. SO, the next best thing is to make a warm and cozy blanket sort of project.
The hexagons are modified from an octagonal block found in one of my stitch dictionaries and they are simply edged with the brown. Single crochet holds it all together.
The hexagons don’t take very long to make but I figured out that I’ll have to make somewhere between 120 and 192 of them to make a fair sized throw. We’ll see if I chicken out early and it ends up more like a scarf!
