Rainbow Hexi Blanket aka Mr C’s blankey

A week ago I finished Mr C’s blankey and it turned out just as I had hoped it would. Colourful and bright!  Well that’s a given with rainbows isn’t it. Below are a few photos of this finished ‘masterpiece’ as it’s quite like a piece of art, and from a distance the colours seem to work really well together. Needless to say I am more than happy with how it turned out.

Bright and colourful, just like every rainbow.

Have I mentioned before that I love colour?

And of course, the photo of the blankey on the chair. It had been raining for a few days and had finally stopped just as I finished this blanket, so I quickly ran outside to get this shot.

I drew inspiration from Ryane @olivesandpickles on Instagram.  Her feed is amazing with these unbelievable hexi blankets.  Go and check her out. She does sell a pattern too if you’re wanting to make your own one.

I used 8ply (dk) yarn purchased from Big W and Spotlight and my favourite 5mm hook. I designed the layout first before starting to crochet.  And used the join as you go method again for this blanket.

The layout of the rainbow hexi.

I started by making the first couple of rows.

Then I couldn’t help myself and had to crochet the other xolours to see what they would look like together.

I just love how this blanket looks once the half hexis are crocheted and joined.

I honestly felt like this blanket was taking me forever to do. I finished it within three weeks, the same amount of time it took me to do the Minecraft Blanket (which is over double the size).

I will finish the post with this photo. Yep, I do love how this turned out. Maybe almost as much as Mr C does….maybe.

*** UPDATE 20th JUNE 2017 ***
Here is a photo of the ‘wrong’ side so you can see the joins.  Keep in mind it’s a very loved blanket lol. Hence the pilling lol.

      Hi Caitlin, I used Marvel 4 Season and Carnival yarn which are available from Spotlight and Big W respectively in Australia. I can’t remember the exact colours off the top of my head sorry 😦

    Are you able to post a picture of the “wrong” side of this blanket. I would like to know how the joining looks on that side.
