How to Crochet: Mini Motifs – Part FourBy Erin Burger – 5 Comments
I’ve saved the best for last in this fourth and final (for now, at least) installment of mini motifs! This is a larger mini motif, with the G hook and Dk weight yarn it might be considered a regular sized motif or a ‘square’ and can be used as an afghan more easily than the other mini motifs in previous posts. This mini motif is elegant and would make a lovely applique for the corner of blankets or scarfs because of it’s resemblance to a cross.
Round 1: ch 6, join with sl st in first ch made to form ring
Round 2: ch 2, 15 sc into ring, join with a sl st to top of beginning ch: 15 sc
Round 3: ch 2, sc in next 2 sc, *(sc, ch 9, sc) in next sc, sc in next 3 sc, repeat from * around, ending with a sl st in top of beginning ch: 19 sc, 4 ch-9 spaces
Round 4: ch 2, (sc in next sc, skip 2 sc, 21 dc into next ch-9 space, skip 2 sc) around, ending with a sl st in top of beginning ch: 84 dc
Round 5: [(ch 5, skip 5 dc, sl st in next dc, ch 4, sl st in same st) 3 times, ch 5, sl st in next sc] repeat around four times, join with a sl st to first ch of beginning ch: 28 sl st, 16 ch-5 spaces, 12 ch-4 spaces
Finish off, make it pretty!
