Remember the hexagon afghan I've been working on? The last [green] round of all dcs in the spaces and each dc made them really curly and ruffly and they wouldn't lay flat even if I pulled and stretched it out. I'm using acrylic so blocking won't work. Today I decided to just see how it would look if I kept the "2dc, ch2, dc2" corners, and then repeated like previous rounds chaining 2 and doing 2dc in the space. It doesn't look bad, and it's not ruffly! I think that's how the final pattern is going to be. I still have to decide whether I want the first [orange] round to be 3dc clusters like this one or 2dc clusters. The 2dc clusters look more like a flower, but I like the way this one looks. I've also done two this way, so I think I may stick with that. One more hex to go, then I can do the pale blue triangles for in between and finalize the pattern and post it, w00t!
