Little Boy Hexies

I have been seriously thinking about these little boy hexagons. I always do granny something. Granny squares, puffy granny hexagons, granny hexagons, granny smith apples.... oh wait, that was food. But at any rate, 90% of my crochet items are some how related to GRANNIES!

In my last post, I mentioned that I didn't like the hexies I had finished, and this is what they looked like. The more of them I made, the more irritated I became with the outcome.
So then I decided to use a smaller hook, take out one of the double crochets in the clusters, so it's more like a V-stitch, and I added a color...

These are the same color combinations and everything, but I like the smaller one much better!

I guess I should have made another one, but I was so excited about how cute they were that I had to stop and share!

So now, I just have to decide if I want to connect them with the navy border, or without it. I am really feeling like I might try to connect them without the border. That will give me more color options.... let's see what happens!


  1. I think it looks lighter and brighter without the navy border even if I'm partial to navy blue, as you can tell by my bag :)
    Yes, the african flowers are a part of it, I'll post some pictures as soon as I get some more done! Thank you for stopping by my blog :)

  4. Hi BumbleBri, it seems the weather in the US has been pretty nasty lately... still having those tornados over there? I always remember Dorothy and Toto when I hear about them...
    It's been really nice around here this Spring, we had a lot of rain in the winter and a few weeks back there was a sudden hail storm but now all is back to the usual sunny weather. And I love the sun...
    Thank you for stopping by! :)
