100% cotton, the peaches and cream or sugar and cream weights of yarn. I sat down the other day and wanted to do something with these scraps; haven't decided if it is going to be two or one afghan. I may do a pastel one and a red, white, and blue one for next Fourth of July. The pattern is mine; I just started crocheting, but that doesn't mean there isn't another pattern in cyberland or somewhere in the world that isn't similar or the same because all blocks like this are very similar. Have fun; I would love to see whatever you make from this pattern. you can post your results on hooked on crochet (see link to flickr below). The pattern is only 4 rounds, but you can continue and make the hex as big as you want.
Look at the color of that carpet -- with three kids, we must be crazy!
