Lacy Flowers motif

This entry might be subtitled "Looking at things a little differently". Today, I was looking at a runner that I started earlier this year in #10 thread. (See the entry for March 12, 2008).


I have also been thinking about what I could make with the remaining NaturallyCaron Spa, the bamboo/acrylic blend that I used for the Ring Around the Posie top. I have 3balls of the Spa in a color called Ocean Spray, I think it also could be called Seafoam green. I also have one ball of yellow from a class at the Conference. Probably not enough to make a top, or a shawl, but I thought that maybe if I used the yellow for flowers, and the green for leaves, that I could buy some white and create a motif design. Then I could join the motifs and make a top. So I tried the yellow and green in the Lacy Flowers motif pattern from the runner. This is beautiful, I think that it might make a lovely and soft afghan, throw, or bedspread.

Notice how different this motif looks by changing the size and type of fiber, and using a single color or changing colors.

Whoops, while checking out this post, I clicked each picture and looked at the large photo. I noticed that on the last round of the green I actually skipped several single crochets before the final joining. I'm glad that I was only swatching for ideas and hadn't joined this into a major project as is!

I am not understanding how to put
the blocks together.
Do you have a site showing in picture form or video how you do it?

The blocks are joined on the last round of each motif. The instructions are included in the pattern.
Try a web search for "join as you go".
