Dreaming of Persia? I have been ever since I began knitting this blanket! Hexagon motifs are grafted together to create a complex web of colorwork, all in eastern inspired motifs.
This is not a quick project, but it is very enjoyable. Each hexagon is knit in the round, from the center out, the colorwork is always on the right side, and the border also is knit onto each hexagon as you go. As you finish hexagons, you can begin to graft them together. The pattern is charted only
Yarns listed will make a blanket in the original colorway, but the pattern includes three colorways! Each has a set of charts to make it easy.
As it happens, this is also a perfect project for using up balls of multicolor sock yarn! Just pick a solid for the background, and work all the colors in the multi yarn instead.
The sample is shown in Knit Picks Palette.
