I found these Tammy Hildebrand patterns in the Sensational Afghans book. I am in love with her methods of color changing. I found 2 patterns in the book by her and even though i changed the colors and the order they were done in it is her pattern for the hexagons. I made up my own little squares to go between them. I needed a solid color there to calm it down a bit. Supposed to be an afghan but I am rethinking making rugs small enough to go in the washer but large enough and then make enough of them to cover an entire floor. hmmm...... I am just in love with how these look. click them for bigger pics. If you know of any crochet patterns out there like these please leave a comment so I can go look too. I want MORE!!
crocheting them got so good I snapped my poor little plastic ice crochet hook right in half. drat. I tried to buy a new one but my local walmart had ONE in the whole store my size. Now I am on the hunt for more metal crochet hooks before I get hard up late at night needing one again. That was awful.
