CAL : Marvelous Crochet Motifs

Thank you for visiting! Today I’m sharing with you one of the 48 motif patterns from my newest Annie’s book, Marvelous Crochet Motifs.

1798241309_16_Motif16_FullThis motif is called the ‘Blossom Hexagon’.

I love how easy it is to make a complex-looking project. Layers and colors create eye-popping results without adding too much difficulty.

As you are stitching your motif, think about what it wants to be when it “grows up”. In the book, there are 4 projects. They are there to inspire you to think about how you want to use the motifs. With just one motif in cotton or wool, you might have a coaster or hot pad, depending on the gauge. You can use thread and make an exquisite piece of jewelry or Christmas ornament. Make it in just one color or many.  Make a few to several motifs for a scarf or cowl and more motifs for a baby blanket or throw.  It’s really the building block for your creativity.

Would you like to talk about the motif and the process with me and other crocheters? Visit the free thread on Ravelry to discuss and post your photos. Here’s the Ravelry thread.

    Thankyou, this is very pretty and I’m looking forward to doing it but where is the stitch guide that goes with it please?

      Hi Lynda, These are the first comments to the blog so I’m just learning how to answer them! If you go to AnniesCatalog.com, the stitch guide is in the upper right corner it says, “Stitch Guide”. Here is a link: http://www.anniescatalog.com/pages/stitchguide/index.html

      Unless… you are talking about the stitch diagram for the Blossom motif… that is in this post, it’s a link, right under the instructions link. Hope that helps!

    What a beautiful motif and I’m joining the CAL!. I rushed over to Annie’s and got your new book. Also, I plan to take your class on crocheting with beads. BTW, I got my new Crochet! magazine and I am very excited for the new look and especially the diagrams. Thank you so much! Jody Penrod
