You could make this as small or as large as you want by choosing yarn thickness and how many rounds you want it to be. It could be a tiny hexagon-shaped earring with fingering or sport weight yarn; or with more rounds in thin yarn it could also be a beautiful shawl. Use a #3, 4 or 5 weight yarn and make it any sized afghan from a baby blanket through a kind-sized bed coverlet or even a rug! You can make this any size you like! Use this pattern to make many different types of projects!
