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.
This 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.
