Some new hexes

I earlier showed a "complete" hex throw of some sort and mentioned that it could be extended in various ways.  Herewith a bunch of new hexes to be used to extend it somehow (or not)


Another infinity scarf



As you may see, there are several twists in this.  Does anyone know how to prevent tis?

Circle in the square hexed

I saw an interesting pattern of circle in the square as a pane in a bag:


so I decided to remake it to fit my preferred figure, hexes.  I started by decreasing the eight petals to six:


which was OK, but I thought a bit denser would look better, so I increased the petals to nine:



Very satisfying.

Slug sling

I like to keep my coffee handy all day  but, when I set it down, a forget it until I want another slug, by which time I am several rooms or floors away from it.  So I crocheted this little device (no pattern, just keep going til it came out right):

Hex afghan

This is technically done at 45" x 62".


It needs blocking, of course.  But it could also easily be expanded, either by adding new rows along any edge or by extending all the rows in one direction or the other,  Or by taking a new row as axis and building toward a rectangle in a whole new way


In any case, it could be finished off by adding half blocks to square up the edges (not that leaving the scallops and points isn't a nice look, too).



For now, I think I'll let it rest for a while while I turn to other projects, say for Holy Yarns.
