Lanas&Hilos: FILL THE GAP in the HEX

On one side there is a zig-zag (in blue, in the graphic), which is soft and workable. But on the other side, the gap is bigger and awkward (in red). Una de las razones por las que muchas personas se desaniman de hacer proyectos con aplicaciones (motifs) hexagonales es por los hoyos que deja en los bordes. Uno de los lados queda en zig-zag (en azul), pero es fácil de trabajar. Lo problemático es el otro lado (líneas rojas), ya que los espacios vacíos son más grandes y difíciles de trabajar.

I've been making granny squares for eighteen months now and in that time I've made a great many for blankets and cushions, all of which have been joined together after the squares themselves have been made.

Then a few weeks ago when I had an idea to make a throw out of small three-round granny squares, I decided to test out a join-as-you go method. Quite honestly, the thought of sitting down with a huuuuuuuuge stack of small squares and attempting to crochet them all together actually filled me with alarm. So I was really THRILLED when this joining-on-the-go method did indeed work out. It has really made a big difference to the way I feel about tackling a project composed of many small parts, because lets face it, the joining procedure is the least favourite part of blanket-making, and if that can be eliminated, well then, thats what I would call a REsUlt.
