GRANNY SQUARE COAT......2nd option?

Wore my Granny Square Coat again today to a VW Show at BODELWYDDAN Castle......
got stopped again lol.
 
I will definitely be making another one for next winter and thought the MINI HEX might be an option....still thinking though.
Crumbs!!....I need a hair cut.
joined the mini hex's with a grey Aran weight....my favourite weight yarn and a 5mm hook.
Not sure if I want to make the next coat with a navy or black though.
But I quite like the mini hex..colour without too much colour.
 
Happy Hooking

  1. Oh! I love it! I keep pinning pictures of Granny square coats with all intentions of making one but still have not gotten there yet! I think I will make creating one a summer project ( of many! ) when school gets out! This way it will be done in time for Fall wearing!

    1. Hi I got the comment in my mail thanks for the input, yes a agree a hex is a better 'shaper' motif than a square.

  3. I think the mini hex would be perfect for a coat. Similar enough that it will be the same showstopper, but different enough that they don't appear the same. And I think it would be a great shape to experiment with fit (because it's got a sort of curve opposed to the straight square shape of the grannies)

  4. So you wore your lovely granny square coat! I can imagine that you would be stopped! You are probably doing what others would like to do, but haven't dared! Have you seen Cate Blanchett in her giant granny-square dress? I actually didn't like her colour scheme, you could give her a few tips in colour coordination!

  6. I love that coat and the colours you've used are great. I like the idea of using navy in the next coat, I wear a lot of navy. I really like that it's unique and a real statement piece :)

    1. Hi thanks....I agree a dark one, navy or Black as a back ground colour is definitely one to add to the list.
      We could do a CAL hey? lol

  8. You look great in that amazing coat. I think hexagons would be great especially if you did not use half hexagon's to created a straight border, the wave the hexagon makes would create a lot of fun at the front opening of the sweater.
    Does that make any sense at all?
    Hugs,

  11. Lovely coat. Didn't know there was a VW show at BW. We usually go to the classic car show. We went this year and had the usual windy but good weather.
