Lacey thread crochet motifs are both beautiful to look at and enjoyable to make, and can be used in many ways, whether as stand-alone decor items, as embellishments, or joined to produce larger lace pieces. Whether you’re new to crochet and in search of simple practice pieces, or an experienced stitcher who can’t resist a new pattern, you’ll find no shortage of inspiration
This pretty lacy motif is worked in one color. It is crocheted in the round starting in the center and working outward from there. This is an intermediate crochet project that works up quickly. The size of this Motif is 3.5’’.
Using the Lacy Motif –
Unlike most crochet patterns, this pattern has no gauge, no thread requirement and no hook sizes.
That’s because you can vary the size and appearance of each motif to fit the needs of your project. If the motif is for a bedspread, you could choose size 5 cotton thread and an appropriate hook, the same motif could be made with size 10 cotton thread and a similar hook for a doily.
When choosing the thread and hook for your project experiment with a variety of threads to achieve the appearance and texture that pleases you.
