While Interweave’s PieceWork magazine is celebrating its 25th anniversary, we are getting ready to celebrate our first! And … spring is right around the corner … plenty of reasons for uplifting joy. We would like you to celebrate with us …
We’ve tried something new, combining hexagon weaving with hexagon crocheting.
You could just weave hexagons, or you could just crochet hexagons. But we would like to encourage you to try both. We’ll be right at your side, supporting you at every step of the way as needed.
The weaving is done on the original TURTLE hexagon pin loom (about 4″ weaving size) , which combines two methods to make the weaving of hexagons possible. Photo guided step-by-step instructions come with the loom, but you can also learn with free instructional videos on our Youtube channel.
LANG Yarns Mille Colori 200 is a classic multi-colored wool blend with matte-shiny effects and complex color combinations. We chose color combination #16 with orange, blue, pink, yellow in dominance. It very much reminded us of a flower filled spring meadow. Store locator
Wonderland Yarns by Frabjous Fibers is perfect for crocheting. The fingering weight, superwash merino Cheshire Cat is not only the perfect weight for working lacey hexagons, but the “#46 Little Busy Bee” color carries on the color scheme of the Mille Colori and completes therefore the meadow effect.
