Which one?February 16, 2007 at 10:05 pm | Posted in All Finished Crafts, Craft - Books | 1 Comment
Quick project again. It took no more than half an hour to finish both when I was going over the course materials. They are no bigger than a 1€ coin. It would be nice to use white thread for larger petals and yellow for the center, then it would be a nice daffodil. I made two alternatives with my limited “inventory” of cotton threads. I am not sure which is better in terms of color combination. They don’t look so different from each other. What do you think?
The pattern is derived from a motif pattern in a Japanese book モチーフ・エジング200—やさしいかぎ針編 (Motif,Edgings 200-Easy Crochet Patterns). ASIN: 452902072X. As stated in its name, it’s a collection of basic crochet motifs and edgings. The motifs are classified into a few categories: flower motifs, three dimensional motifs(the flowers I made are from this category), lace motifs, basic motifs(mainly squares and hexagons), fancy yarn motifs (using special yanrs, such as mohair) and colorful motifs (e.g. granny squares). The book also includes some pictures showing how these motifs are applied to clothes and home decorations. It is a handy reference for crochet lovers, especially the beginners.
