Blanket Finale: Peaceful Hexagon

(Crochet * Stash-buster)




I finally finished the Peaceful Hexagon blanket!!!  I started it last year, and have worked on it slowly…and finally it is all done!
Finalmente terminé la Frazada Pacífica. Comencé a tejerla el año pasado, y fui avanzando poco a poco…y finalmente está completa.



It is made with hexagons with a flower center.  I used the motif called “Love at First Sight” (@ Le Monde de Sucrette). 
Está hecha de héxagonos con una flor en el centro.  Utilicé el motif llamado “Amora Primera Vista” (@ Le Monde de Sucrette).



The background is in cream, and all centers of the flowers are beige.  For the two petals of the flowers, I alternated between 3 shades: purples, greens and neutrals. The colors are really soothing, and that is why I called it “Peaceful Hexagon”. I used yarn from my stash, though I confess I did buy an extra few colors to add depth, and of course extra cream for the background and border.  
Todo el fondo es color crema, y los centros son todos en color beige. Para los dos pétalos de las flores, decidí alternar entre tres tonos: morados, verdes y neutrales.  Los colores son suaves y relajantes; por eso la bauticé como “Hexágono Pacífico”.  Utilicé principalmente lanas acumuladas, pero también compré algunas lanas extras para ayudar con el colorido, sobre todo el crema para el fondo y el borde.



In total it is made of 138 hexagons. My blanket grew to be the size of a queen bed, on its surface.  When extended, it covers the whole bed, but I usually leave it at the foot of the bed folded in half.
Está compuesta de 138 hexágonos en total. Es una frazada grande, del tamaño de una cama queen. Cuando está extendida, cubre la cama completa, pero usualmente la dejo al pie de la cama, doblada a la mitad.





I also made a Granny Squares Cushion to match and complement the blanket. 
Hice también un cojín de cuadros de la abuelita para complementar la frazada.   




For the border, I first filled the gaps in the border with cream (check tutorial: Fill the Gap in theHex).  I also filled the zigzag sides, improvising a bit.  For the final border, I made some simple shells.  
Para el borde, rellené los espacios vacíos que dejan los hexágonos (ver tutorial:  Llena los Espacios del Hexágono).  También rellené los espacios zigzag de forma improvisada.   




I love my new blanket…and I am glad I finished it before the year is over.
Me encanta mi nueva frazada…y me alegra haberla terminado antes de que se terminara el año.
