This weeks hexie is Urd, number 3 of #52weeksofhexies. Bymami crochets/designs a new hexie each week and the plan is to crochet them all together into a blanket in the end. The blanket will be named ‘Valkyrie’. Read more about the project and find the pattern for the first hexie here and see all the hexies here.
Important to know about the hexies: Some hexagons end with a stitch count of 60, while others end with 66 stitches. The uneven number of stitches will be aligned when the blanket is assembled in the end. Also, because of time pressure, the patterns have not been tested, so if you discover any mistakes, please let me know so I can fix it!Hexie #3 Urd
Crocheted in Drops Lima in colors Ruby red (5820), Dark purple (4377), Seagreen (9018) and Petrol (0701), from Hobbygarn. One hexie made in four colours uses app.10g of yarn.

- In each ch sp, put *2sc, ch1. SK dc*, rep 12x total (36)
