Crochet Hugs & Kisses Hexagon Quilt Blanket

It’s true, I love Caron Big Cakes the most!  I cannot get enough of them.  This particular colorway, Cherry Cake, was really calling to me.  I finally figured out why.  When I was a child, I had a handmade quilt with the same colours, all bordered in white.  I think it was probably a scrap quilt as all of the colours were random. So that was the inspiration behind the Crochet Hugs and Kisses Hexagon Quilt Blanket Pattern.

So I decided to incorporate the Hugs & Kisses design into a random-looking, quilt-style afghan using this yarn.  Nothing was planned here.  I just let the beautiful self-striping yarn flow.  I bordered each hexagon in white to tie everything together.

If you choose to use Caron Big Cakes as I have, you will get 11 hexagons from a ball of yarn.  So if you want to make a bigger size blanket, it’s easy to plan out.  Also, you can plan your colours with any yarn you wish, but I would suggest continuing to border each hexagon with the same colour.

I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.
