Hexie Fever

Last weekend I have been experimenting with some of the leftover sock yarns from my first Ten Stitch Twist version. As I didn’t find a free hexie knitting pattern I worked out one by myself.

Even the smallest amounts of yarn go into this project. It takes me about fifteen minutes to knit a hexie. Another fun project for my lunch breaks.

  1. If those sockwool samples are anything to go by, it’s going to be a beautiful… something… when it’s finished. Is the pattern you have worked out complicated? I know a lot of people knit socks and probably have lots of little ends of yarn left, so they might enjoy making knitted hexies if you wanted to share the pattern.

    • Not a complicated pattern, just need to write it down. I haven’t decided yet what kind of something it’s going to be. Maybe a cushion or a small blanket, depending on the number of hexies. I’m planning to knit a sweater which will certainly provide me with a couple of additional leftovers. 🙂

    • A small but important detail that’s giving me headaches. Making hexie strips is no problem. I’ve tried to joint them knitwise but the result wasn’t very pleasing to the eye. 🙂
