Stars In My Eyes

I thought I'd make my next crochet blanket using hexagons. For no good reason, just because I've already used stripes, squares and triangles. I've been browsing hexagons on the internet - there are plenty of them.  One that caught my eye is Scrap Savers Hexagon by Julie Bolduc, which you can find here
I really like the star in the middle. Interestingly, if you make the hexagon using a different colour for each round, the star disappears:
Hmm, I wouldn't like to lose my star attraction.  So I'm going to make each hexagon in a single colour, with a white outline. Hopefully I'll be able to join as I go when I work the white rounds. First I must spin some wool to crochet with!

  3. I love the hexagon! And yes, the single colour looks better than 4 colours. But maybe if you tone down to 2 colours, you might still have your star.

  4. Gorgeous shade of blue. Perhaps you could exchange the pink for the blue ?

  6. The center looks like a flower to me, then the next two rounds look like the star, and then the outer round like a hexagon! :) Pretty next and I can't wait to see what you do with it!! :)
