Why did I name this the hexi wheel granny square? Because I spent far too much my life trying to come up with a name for it. It’s not crazy complicated or overly unique but I think it’s pretty. And it’s a lot of fun to do. So sick of trying to come up with a clever name I named it what I did. Which is funny because this wheel doesn’t have 6 spokes, it had 8. If anything, it should be the Octo Wheel Granny, now shouldn’t it. But I’ve got it all over the place now so I’m committed to this awful name :)

At any rate this is my second of two squares for this amazing afghan and  crochet along and I’m super excited to have been invited to participate. So thanks everyone and Lion Brand! Now this is my SECOND written pattern and there were a few issues with the first, which through the power of Facebook and kind hookers I was able to update so that it was less a mess and more functional. I am  hoping *fingers crazy crossed* that this one is a good one. BUT if you have any issues let me know in the comments or by email or however you’re comfortable <– thanks in advance.

Let’s start hooking! Grab your H hook and 4 colors of yarn get ready to get it:
