Motifs can be stitched in an almost infinite number of variables. You can work with different color combination, move the beginning of a round, or change the way you begin and end rounds.
If you are looking for a project that can use your leftover yarn than the Star Hexagon Motif is an idol project.
This pretty motif is worked in three colors. 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 Star Hexagon Motif is 3.5’’.
Using the 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.
