Welcome spring in style with this Blooming Flowers Crochet Throw. The soft gray background makes the hexagon flowers stand out even more in this crochet afghan pattern. Also, because the floral hexagons are made separately and joined in, it's a fun project that is great for when you are traveling but still wish to crochet.

This intermediate pattern uses half double crochet as well as the cluster and shell stitch. Motif patterns like this are one of the best aspects of crochet, so work this beautiful flower blanket up today to get blooming!

NOTES:
Throw is made from 53 Hexagon motifs
in varying color patterns. Hexagons are
worked in joined rounds with right side
facing throughout. First Hexagon is at
the upper left-hand corner. Hexagons
are added in rows from top to bottom.
Rows are added from left to right. There
are 6 color variations of Hexagons. First
Hexagon is worked through Round 8.
Remaining Hexagons are worked the
same using different colors through
Round 7 then joined to previous
Hexagon on Round 8 following an
assembly diagram (shown below). Round 7 and 8 on all
Hexagons are all worked with A.

My son and daughter-in-law just bought a house and I would love to make this for them as a house warming gift. These colors are great and they would actually go with their chosen color scheme for their family room. I hope it doesnt take too long to make. Instructions look fairly easy.
