The throw is made up of 29 hexagons worked in the round from the center out. The interior hexagons is placed on waste yarn when the chart is complete. For each hexagon around the edge of the blanket, once the chart is complete, a border is worked along 2 or 3 sides; the live border stitches are grafted to the wrong side to create a hem. The colorwork pattern is given in chart form only.
