Title: 75 Colorful Hexagons to Crochet
Author: Leonie Morgan
MSRP: $21.99 USD

Book review by Pia Thadani - Stitches'N'Scraps


I've always been a big fan of hexagon motifs. There's just something about the roundness and symmetry of the shape that appeals to me, more so than squares and other shapes. Maybe it's just because I associate them with snowflakes - all hexagons, but all so different.

With 75 colorful and unique designs, this book definitely doesn't disappoint! You're bound to find the perfect design for any project. In fact, you'll probably have trouble deciding between them.

To help you choose, the book starts out with a 4 page hexagon selector gallery, showing all the different designs. It then goes right into the motif designs, including both written and charted instructions.

The designs are divided into 3 sections according to difficulty level: beginner, intermediate, and experienced. At the end of each section, there are project patterns that are made using the hexagon motifs. My favorite are these sunny and bright Citrus Pillows.

The last section of the book contains information on tools and techniques. This includes illustrated instructions for basic stitches and a few more advanced stitch variations. There are also tips on gauge, blocking, joining motifs, and much more.
