Since I've knit my first hexipuff, I've become completely and utterly addicted to the squishy cuteness that are hexipuffs. I've knit 2 and crocheted one. I did end up lightly stuffing them and I just love how much they squish up when you squeeze them! I'm going to add a drop of lavender essential oil to a few (Maybe to 1 every 20 hexipuffs. The quilt would be way too strong a scent if they were all scented.). I didn't try to get gauge with these hexipuffs because initially I was just knitting them for a quilt I intend to make for myself. Now I kinda wish I had so I could participate in the hexipuff swap on the Tiny Owl Knits group on Ravelry. Oh well.
For the second knit hexipuff, I used Turkish CO instead of Judy's Magic CO and liked it better (and no purl ridge). I think I'll stick with turkish CO. Although, like one knit peep pointed out on G+, no one is going to notice once they are all sewn together. LOL! TRUE DAT!
I knit the hexipuffs with a 3.75mm circular needle (magic loop) and crocheted the hexipuff with a 3.25mm hook in order to get a finished size similar to that of the knit hexi(s). I used the Apiary Puff pattern for the crocheted hexipuff. My goal is to knit or crochet 1 puff a day!
You can buy the Beekeeper's Quilt pattern from Tiny Owl Knits.
