PATTERN: Easier Hexagon Honeycomb Bee Blanket
YOU ARE BUYING A FINGER-KNITTING PATTERN, NOT THE FINISHED PRODUCT. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR BUYING YOUR OWN MATERIALS TO COMPLETE THIS PROJECT.
This PDF pattern includes written English instructions, as well as a pattern template.
The Easier Hexagon Honeycomb Bee Blanket is a raised asymmetric pattern of hexagons, meant to represent the cells of a honeycomb, accented by whimsical pom-pom/bobble 'bees'.
This pattern is a variation of my original Hexagon Honeycomb Bee Blanket, using knit stitches instead of the horizontal chain stitches of the original pattern, and a background of purl stitches instead of the more subtle knit stitch of the original, giving the honeycomb a more high-impact and defined look.
THIS IS A FLEXIBLE AND CUSTOMIZABLE PATTERN: You may choose to include or not include the bee element, if you're looking for a more geometric pattern look. You may also choose to include only one repeat of the hexagon pattern if you prefer only an accent at the top of a plain blanket, or two repeats if you wish to cover your entire blanket in hexagons. Instructions for all of these options are included in the pattern.
SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate.
SUGGESTED TOOLS: No needles required (finger knitting).
Scissors. SUGGESTED MATERIALS AND MEASUREMENTS:
- - 5 balls of Bernat Alize Blanket-EZ Yarn (6.4oz, 180g) (Image shown is the colour ‘Dark Gray’). Approximate size 46” x 54” (117cm x 137cm)
- - 9 balls of Lion Brand Off-the-Hook (3.5 oz/100g). Approximate size 43” x 51” (109cm x 129.5cm)
PLEASE NOTE: This pattern will work with any brand of loop yarn, but keep in mind that the size of the loops, and size of the balls/skeins of each brand is different.
For smaller loop yarns like Red Heart Loop-It, the number of balls required should be similar to Lion Brand Off-the-Hook, as long as the balls are of a similar size. Alize Puffy Fine (European) yarn will work with this pattern but you will need to determine the quantity needed by comparing the number of yards in your balls.
