How to Crochet: Mini Motifs – Part OneBy Erin Burger – 4 Comments
|A motif is defined as a distinctive and recurring form, shape, figure, etc., in a design, as in a painting or on wallpaper. Granny squares are a great example of a motif. The mini motifs featured in these posts can be used for so many fun crochet projects. Make a cool garland with many mini-motifs strung together, design your own jewelry (earrings!), decorate a child’s room, make a table runner; the possibilities are practically endless!
This little motif is simple and reminds me of a little jewel. The pictured motifs are a smaller motif made with an E hook and fingering weight yarn and a larger one made with a G hook and sport weight yarn.
Round 1: ch 8, sl st in first ch made to form ring: 8 ch
Round 2: ch 3, 23 dc in ring, join with sl st in top of beginning ch-3: 23 dc
Round 3: sl sl in first three dc, ch 3, sl st in same st, (sl st in next 3 dc, ch 3, sl st in same st) around, ending with a sl st in first sl st, ch 3, sl st in same st: 8 ch-3s
Finish off, weave in any ends. Make it pretty.
