Fattie Flattie Hexipuff Blanket

I love hexipuffs, I love the Beekeeper's Quilt pattern, I REALLY love the mind that makes all the Tiny Owl Knits patterns.

So basically this blanket is full of loves, and lots and lots of stitches. It is heavy, dense, soft, cashmere-y and basically delicious. Final size is around 1.1 x 1.1 m, I haven't blocked it or washed it, and I already sewed it together (REBEL!) but it was never going to happen if I did that.

So without any further delay, the fattie flattie hexipuff blanket!

all sewed up with nowhere to go
the basic idea for this blanket was that it would be the perfect size and weight for being either a floor play rug, a pram blanket, or a winter weight cot blanket. I don't think I'd use it as a cot blanket early on as it is *QUITE* heavy/weighty and I would worry about suffocating, but a bigger than 12month old would be fine. So if/when I ever have a baby of my own, we're all set blanket-wise! YAY! It's been put away in the cupboard until then :)

    1. thank you so much (it was definitely a lot of work!)

  2. i'm glad you kept the stripy ones in!

    1. me too! I wasn't sure, but then I didn't want to waste yarn, then I knit a couple more and I was sure (I even sort of wish there were more stripes!)

  3. Could you share how you attached these flat hexipuffs? Thanks! So pretty
