This square-yet-not-square motif can be used in a variety of projects. You can link a bunch of them up in a line to make a lacy scarf or arrange them in various shapes to make a shawl or small blanket. The concave motif can also be combined with motifs in other shapes to make unique accessories with a variety of curves and lines. crochet_convex_motif
