Remember in math class when you learned all those different shape names? Not really? Meet polygon, a blanket of scrumptious garter hexagons.
Each hexagon measures approximately 5.5” across, and the border is 1” wide. The blanket pictured requires 32 full hexagons and 6 half hexagons, and measures 29.5” wide by 37.5” long.
Four layout options are illustrated, however the blanket is modular, so you can adjust size by working more or less hexagons.
