Baby Gran hexagons

24-peg Baby Gran Hexagon Motif

Better late than never! Here are the Baby Gran Hexagon motifs that were originally offered in Yahoo's Loom Class Group about a year ago as a bonus pattern for those who completed the Baby Gran Squares. Of all the motifs I've designed, these are among my favorites. The hexagon shape is well suited to the simulated granny design and produce very symmetric motifs that fit together well.

As with the Baby Gran squares, the hexagons come in two sizes. The 24-peg Baby Gran Hexagon motif (pictured above) is made on the 24-peg Knifty Knitter round loom and measures approximately 5 inches at the widest point. The 12-peg Baby Gran Hexagon motif (pictured below) is made on the 12-peg Knifty Knitter flower loom and it is about 3.5 inches at the widest point.

These little motifs are so versatile and portable, plus they are great stash busters.  Here are a few examples of projects made with the hexagon motifs:
Also, they a make great coaster! I would love to see your Baby Gran Hex projects!
