hi all I created a new page for the Puff A Long just click on the link at the top of the page.

Hi all, I have been completely obsessed with the little hexapuffs used in

the Beekeepers Quilt I purchased the pattern and have been trying different ways of making them. I have used loomknit and crochet. The first one I

tried I used the Kiss fine gauge 1 loom and the instructions as written in the pattern. This is it:

It came out kinda of small and squatty

The next one I tried was still using the Kiss fg 1 loom except this time I made it using short rows, essentially I made a sock heel and then immediately made another and then I Kitchener stitched the opening closed. It came out too large:

I did not really care for the way it turned out.

Next I tried one using the Kiss FG 2 loom and once again followed the pattern instructions again, It came out to be the size called for in the pattern 3 inches of the 3 I like this one the best:

Next I tried some crocheted ones I tried 3 different ones:

Hexapuff Lap Quilt

The Apiary Puff

Crochet Hexagon Puff

I like the Crochet Hexagon Puffs the best, it is the pink one in the photo.

I am thinking about holding a Hexapuff LAL or CAL here on my blog. You would need to purchase the original pattern from Tiny Owl Knits on Ravelry, though the size you make yours will be up to you.

It would not start for a few weeks and would be a somewhat longterm project. If you are interested in joining please reply in the comments of this post.

Other than the hexapuffs I haven’t gotten much else done lately I started Mr. Bunny from in Loom Class but still need to finish him up, he is lacking 1 arm and 2 legs. I also crochet a dishcloth and scrubbie but they are for an exchange so can’t post photos yet.
