Posted by Nicole Vesterholm on

Welcome to Day 2 of the MCAL!

Yarn:

Hook size: 4 mm

Gauge: Motif will measure 10 cm at widest point. 1 x 10 g ball will yield 2 motifs.

 

Before we start, we have two layout options, and you will need to choose one. Each day we will be joining the new motif to the last. You can either join the sides or the points of the hexagon.
