Hexagon Motif Blanket Shell Pattern
 Materials Needed:Hook sizes G and E, tapestry needle, Two colors of 4 ply worsted weight yarn (one will be MAIN and one will be CONTRAST)
 Note: Hook sizes can be very tricky because everyone crochets with a different tension. If you tend to crochet tightly, your finished motif may be too small. If you crochet tooloosely, your finished motif may be too large. For this project, the completed motif should measure 4 inches across (from point to point.)To make this prop larger, you would need to size your hook up. For each hook size up,you can add an approximate half to three quarters of an inch to the finished project.
