We are adding the pattern to your Afghan Patterns.
This project has been added to your afghan patterns.
If you're looking for a crochet blanket pattern that thinks outside the box, then the Super Cool Hexagon Throw is what you should crochet next. This unexpected crochet afghan will create a unique statement piece for you home. Once you've created your striped hexagon center, you'll add a few triangle points along the edge. Once it's done you'll have a cool and completely unique sun-shaped afghan for all occasions. While this pattern might look a bit intimidating, it's actually really easy. Find out for yourself and crochet your own!
