Crochet Pattern: Expanding Pentagon MotifBy Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 11 Comments
|Have you ever tried crocheting a project with motifs of shapes other than squares? It can be challenging, especially when you’re not following an already made pattern. But it’s also a lot of fun. Here’s an elegant but simple pentagon motif that is very versatile. Choose to make it smaller by crocheting less rounds, or larger by following the same increasing method, whichever best suits your project.|
Finished Size: 3 1/4″ (8 cm) in diameter
Light Weight Yarn (approximately 15 yards)
Crochet Hook B (2.25 mm)
Round 1 measures 3/4” (2 cm)
