In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, and anything else that happens to pop into my head. Sit back, relax for five minutes of a day, and enjoy!

A hexagon ball


 So, the other night I was in bed, reading blogs on my I-phone and I came across this hexagon tutorial
 And somewhere, or maybe I dreamed it, I saw where they put hexagons together to make a ball.
 And I thought...what a cute gift idea for a baby!  And my friend, who happens to own a yarn store, just became a Grandmother.
 So I started crocheting hexagons, but for the life of me I could NOT find that ball pattern again.
 But tonight at crochet...."K" and I figured it out!
 Stitch three together, then stitch one hexy on the bottom,

 and one partially on the top.
  
I rolled a rather large bell up in batting...
 and I kept rolling it until it was the right size to fit in the ball.
 Stuff it inside the opening then stitch it closed.  

 What do you think?


 I love it!

    1. Hi Fi - Yes, my house blog is getting a lot of SPAM and I can't get it to go away. When I delete a comment, it adds another. SO I thought I'd try this fora while. I hate it, but I don't know what else to do.
