I have not done a hexagon project ever. One of these days I will start one project made of African flowers. I'm excited to do it in different colors.

I can never get the pattern for the African Flower Hexagon. All that comes up is the tutorial . Ia there a Pattern available?

I love this join as you go pattern! So far, I've been put off from making a hexagon or square crochet afghan because of the long joining process. This should speed it up a bit!

The tutorial and step by step pictures were really helpful. I am new to crochet and I love learning a new technique!

Hi kate, the link doesn't work, do you happen to know anywhere else I can get the step by step directions

Here is the tutorial in step by step pictures wit the pattern for each step == frican-flower-hexagon-crochet-tutorial.html

I love this pattern and recently made a lap afghan for my weekend midday naps on the sofa from wool thread I inherited from a friend some years ago. The join-as-you-go technique is an absolutely wonderful trick. To think of all the time and effort I could have saved in years past. I could have made so many more things with much greater ease! For the lap afghan, I used the colored yarns I had for the first batch of square and the neutral off-white for the balance of them to get the shape and size I needed. When I ran short of thread, I used Patrons sequened to add a border to balance out the colors, size and ease of care. The finished item turned out very nice, and is just the right size and weight for those naps it was designed for. It also makes me feel close to the long deceased friend.

I'm looking for the poinsetta pattern. My Mothr made one, years ago. Hoping you can help me to find it. Thanks. Mrs. Freeman. email address, Please do NOT send me any magazines!

there is no pattern for this African Flower Hexagon without paying for this pattern.
