This is a fun one to make if you’re planning to spend some time outdoors! Bernat Maker Home Dec is a large gauge yarn that pairs with a 8.0mm crochet hook – which means it works up in a flash. The simplicity to this one is that each hexagon is worked up individually and then all are sewn together to create this summer essential. We’ve included a video tutorial on how to work up the hexagons so you have no excuses not to try this one out!
This pattern works up as 38 individual hexagons that are attached together to form the blanket.

Attach all pieces according to the following diagram. This part can be a bit tricky to keep track of so make sure you keep the diagram handy.
To join, line up each the sides of the hex to plan to attach. Join with a slst to the corner of the first hex and sc both sides together. This will create a pattern on top of simply attaching them together.
Of course, you can always sew them together and same some time on this part.
