Floral Sampler Hexagons Lap Blanket for my boss' mother - Navy, Yellow, Mexicana


Size: 37 inches x 47 inches
Colors: Canary Yellow, Navy Blue, Mexicana (rainbow multi)
Pattern: #9 Floral Sampler
Book: Romancing the Afghan - 10 Designs - Leaflet 2881 - Copyright 1996 - Leisure Arts
Date: November 2003

My boss asked me if I would make a lap blanket for her mother. She liked the hexagon blanket I made in purples and black so I said I'd make another hexagon blanket with the yarn she bought for the blanket. She and her father went shopping at Michaels and picked canary yellow and navy because they were looking for something bright - and the yellow is just that: bright!

I made several hexagons with just the yellow and navy but it just wasn't working for me (i.e., I didn't like it!) so I bought some Mexicana - a bright rainbow-colored yarn - to tie together the yellow and navy. The resulting blanket is more cheery and colorful than just a 2-tone hexagon-style blanket.

The blanket pattern has 3 different styles of hexagons, but I used only the 2 styles I liked. Each hexagon is unique.

The solid navy half hexagons use a pattern I created myself specifically for this blanket. (I'll post it soon.)


Would you be willing to sell the Leisure Arts leaflet 2881? I lost my copy AFTER I started crocheting an afghan as a wedding gift (and I had purchased all the yarn)!!! I am willing to pay any price (within reason)!!!! Can you please help me? I haven't been able to find it ANYWHERE!!!!!!!!!
