This is place for me to natter and a lot of it is about knitting.

I love the crochet hexagon throw I made for my bedroom chair. So much so, that I am making a 2nd one to cover the seat.
Here is the progress on throw number 2 - fairly slow but getting there.
Finished hexagons - some edged in black ready to add to the throw.
Hexagons are so simple to make. Make a 7 chain and join it with a slip stitch.
Chain 3 (which equals the 1st treble ...using UK terms here) then make 17 trebles into the centre of the loop (I crochet in the my ends as I go).
Join the trebles with a slip stitch and chain 3. Make 1 treble then into next stitch, 1 treble, chain 2, 1 treble - this makes a corner. You need 2 trebles between each corner and 6 corners in total.
Join with a slip stitch, chain 3 and this time make 4 trebles then a corner etc - all the way round.
Keep going until you have the size hexagon you want.
I use double crochet to edge mine - 1 double for each treble and 3 doubles per corner.
Then using doubles again add to the the throw.
Perfect use for odds of sock yarn and pretty too.
