I loved Kathy's 'granny' hex and had to have a go.It's now my favourite but taking Jeanne's point about warmth I had another go at a much thicker version. The one at the back is made from oddments of Robin Picasso Chunky and is very sturdy.
The first one acquired its flowers plus an extra as a buttonhole.
Such love shinning through with these beauties Christine.
i love the flowers.
Between you and Mary there are going to be lots of warm children wearing "designer" sweaters.
Just lovely Christine! Gorgeous colours and they all look really soft and cosy, I too love the finishing touch of the flowers on the one at front right.
Did you recognise the Aldi wools in the granny version Kathy? I used three different colourways to use up oddments and the photo doesn't really show the variations in patterning and colour. I'm glad I bought quite a lot of the stuff - I shall be lost without it.
oh Christine I love it! And they really will be warm - as my husband said - why did/do people wear string vests? (if they still do??) - because they trap the heat. I made us a HUGE granny blanket to snuggle under when we watch TV (we both fit) and it really is very warm. I don't think there is any problem with the granny approach. I love your colours - just gorgeous - well done. I have started another one alongside my next Grace Vest - love it!
I think what appeals to me most is the colour possibilities. I wanted to knit Elizabeth Zimmerman's Baby Surprise Jacket until I realized I would need to use a circular needle so these are a good substitute. I can't crochet 'straight' - the edges are never right, so at the moment I go round and round, whether it's circles, squares or hexagons so this pattern became a possibility.
Wow! What super sweaters!
These are kind of addictive, aren't they?!
Oh Christine, you really are a crochet star now. I love these.
These are gorgeous, Christine-well done!
