Flowers in Bloom Inspiration
Flowers are mentioned in the Bible often as a reference for analogies and parables. We see it in Isaiah 58:11 with reference to fasting that pleases God, in Luke 12:22-34 when Jesus encourages us to cast our cares on God and live easy with dependence upon His providence and the stark reminder in Isaiah 40:8 echoed in 1 Peter 1:22-25, flowers will fade away (even ones made of yarn, lol) but the word of God will remain.
Scripture calls to the beauty and divine providence of their growth and bloom to inspire us to live by faith and trust in the Lord. May we bloom as the flowers and be an example of God’s grace to the world!
About this crochet hexagon blanket.
This crochet hexagon blanket is a lovey lightweight make yet it does offer a cosy texture and feel. The blanket is made from acrylic yarn in 8 different colours, making it a wonderful project for your stash. The blend between the sunflower granny square and the classic granny square award it breathability, and it feels wonderfully soft with a nice drape.
The hexagons are made up of 5 rounds with 5 colours per hexagon and 7 different colour palettes I’d chosen for my blanket. Choose your own Flowers in Bloom Blanket palette for a burst of spring/summer freshness for your space
The hexagon would have 5 rounds before the border, so that meant I could use 4 colors per square. I took some time to make 9 different color palettes using the 11 colors I’d chosen for my blanket.

- Weave in your ends. I use the triple tuck method.
- Crochet the border.
“Peak” refers to a hexagon corner that protrudes out from blanket edge.
• “Valley” refers to where two hexagons meet to create an indent in blanket edge.
Rnd 1 (RS): With RS facing you, attach olive yarn to any dc stitch next to a ch-2 corner space as shown below.
The stitches in this round will be worked only in dc stitches from the hexagons. This means we will work chains to cover the chain spaces in the peaks and skip over the valleys.
Ch 1 (counts as 1 sc) and sc in each st across until you get to the ch sp. Ch 2 and skip over the ch-2 sp. Sc in each st across until you get to the valley, skip it as well and sc in the next st.
You will rpt the same pattern across the entire round of the blanket. Sl st into beginning ch-1 to join and fasten off yarn.
Rnd 2 (RS): In this round, you will work an “increase” in each peak (marked by a ch-2 space) by crocheting a *hdc, ch2, hdc* in the space and a “decrease” in each valley (marked by the last sc in the current hexagon and the beginning sc in the next hexagon) by skipping these 2 sc.
To start, Join periwinkle yarn into any corner ch-2 space. Ch 4(counts as I hdc and ch-2 space) and hdc in same space. (Hdc, ch 2, hdc) in the ch-2 space.
- (Hdc in each st across to the valley. Skip the last sc of current hexagon and first sc of next hexagon) Repeat 2 times.
- (Hdc in each st across to the peak. (Hdc, ch 2, hdc) in the ch-2 space) Repeat 2 times.
Repeat steps 1 and 2 across the entire blanket edge for this round. Join using a sl st to 2nd chain of beginning ch-4. Fasten off.

Rnd 3 (WS): Turn your blanket and crochet this round with the wrong side facing you.
You will work puff stitches in every other stitch with an increase (puff, ch 2, puff) in every peak (ch-2 space).
To crochet a puff stitches: Yarn over, insert the hook into the stitch, yarn over, and pull up a loop) 4 times. There will be 9 loops on the hook. Yarn over, and draw the hook through all loops on hook.
Join mustard yarn in any corner ch-2 space. Ch1, (puff, ch 2, puff) in the corner space. ((Ch 1, skip next st, puff in next st)to the next peak. (puff, ch 2, puff) in the corner space). Continue to make puff stitches around the blanket as indicated in the bold brackets ( ). Join with a sl st to the top of the first stitch. Fasten off mustard yarn.
Rnd 4 (WS): Similar to round 3, you will work this round with the wrong side facing you.
This round is made of picots stitches and deep sc.
To crochet a picot st: sc in indicated st, ch 3, sl st in the front loop and left loop of sc at base of the ch.
To crochet a deep sc: sc into the skipped hdc st from round 3
Join maroon yarn in any corner ch-2 space. Ch 1, (sc, picot, sc) into the corner space. ((Deep sc, picot) to the next peak. (sc, picot, sc) into the ch-2 space). Continue in this way around the blanket as indicated in the bold brackets ( ). Join with a sl st to the top of the first stitch. Fasten off maroon yarn.
