This Crochet Flower Hexie is Coming Up Roses

Good news: crocheted flowers and hexie motifs are a perfect match. We love these worked up in a rainbow of colors — just join them together for an afghan full of gorgeous blooms. If joining's not your thing, these motifs stand on their own as placemats, too. Add a few extra rounds with your final color until you have the size you need.
