Barbara over in K-Town recently issued a challenge she is currently making motifs from the book Beyond the Square by Edie Eckman and she has challenged us to join her in making 100 motifs or as many as we can.
I do love this book it's lovely to browse through even if you don't make a single motif. I have already began by making motif # 40
You may ask what's the point in making motifs that you may never use, well my reasons are, it improves your crocheting skills, it provides some light relief when doing a bigger project, it's stirs up your imagination and creativity who knows what project may blossom because of them, it's nice to show them off to family and friends and... I want to try and make more than Barbara lol, having said that she is already way ahead of me.
Single motifs can be used as wall art, decoration on clothing, coasters, gifts. With that last thought in mind let me lead you to this next motif.
This first one was made with cotton yarn. It's a very easy motif to make, the one in the book is made with a single colour but I like the two colour effect.
Both together on a dark background
There are other heart motifs in the book but this one caught my eye, the gift of a heart given to the one you love for Valentines day or for anyone that's special in your life.
