Knit Hexagon Wrap – Hexed Flower

This knit hexagon wrap starts in the center with a flower and then grows into a hexagon. Two sides on one half and two sides on the other then expand outwards to lengthen the wrap. This is an intermediate pattern because of the central flower. Once the center is complete, the knitting becomes quite easy!

At the end of this pattern there is a chance to win the yarn used in the Hexed Flower wrap, in addition to a yarn bowl. Giveaway ends 11/3/19
