Overview

The 48 motifs in this book are squares or hexagons that can be tiled together to make a fabric. Also included are half motifs, which keep the integrity of the design but are only pieces of the motif. These are used to neatly fill in spaces and add shape, and they give more flexibility when building a project. Motifs in themselves can be complete projects, such as coasters or washcloths. Or multiple motifs can be added together to make something larger, including a scarf or a placemat. By stitching even more motifs together, you can even create a wrap or an afghan. The designs that can be made using motifs are limitless. As an extra bonus, the book contains symbol crochet for each motif and design. The four designs are a scarf, a hat, a cowl, and a blanket. All motifs and projects can be made using Plymouth Encore worsted-weight yarn.
