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.

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?!
