This pretty flower granny square motif can be used for a multitude of different crochet projects, from things for around your home i.e table decorations, cushion covers etc.
Or use up all those remnants of yarn to make lots of them and join together for an afghan or baby blanket.
It is made with basic crochet stitches and is aimed at all crochet skills and levels.
A hexagon motif is not that hard to make, don’t assume that it is too complicated, if you can crochet a granny square then you can easily make one of these.
Make them in less than an hour and use for blankets, soft toys, shawls etc!

Below is a pictorial on how to do a sl st and how to seam the squares together.
This is the third pattern in my crochet afghan motif collection, if you are new to crochet and are looking for a quick project to practice with, granny square’s are ideal.
Turn them into blankets, throws etc. for your own home, friends, charities or fairs, many crocheters make these as they are a great way to use up all those odd ends of yarn that you have over from your other projects.
