How to Crochet: Mini Motifs – Part TwoBy Erin Burger – 3 Comments
This mini motif can also be used as a flower applique. You can attach each motif together by making an sc join from petal to petal. Lay out all your motifs so you can get an idea of the finished project before you start joining them. 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 6, sl st in first ch to form a ring
Round 2: ch 1, 15 sc in ring, join with sl st in beginning ch-1: 15 sc
Round 3: ch 6 (counts as 1 dc and beginning ch), skipping first sc, dc in 2nd dc from hook, (ch 3, skip 1 sc, dc in next dc) around, ending with ch 3, join with a sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch-3: 8 dc, 8 ch 3 spaces
Round 4: ch 1, [(sc, hdc) in first ch, 3 dc in next ch, (hdc, sc) in next ch, skip dc] around, join with a sl st in top of beginning ch-1: 16 sc, 16 hdc, 24 dc
Finish off, weave in any ends. Make it pretty.
