Just an FYI, if you look at your pattern picture, it's a pentagon (5 sided), not a hexagon (6 sided)

Wowwowwee. Wootwoot. This afghan is sooooo beautiful. The shape and color combination is so unique. I can imagine this sittiing at my brother's sofa and being admired by his guests, friends and inlaws. Thanks for the pattern which is right in front of the page.
