Motifs are great for on-the-go crafters because you work them a piece at a time and then connect them together into a scarf, afghan or shawl later.
When we speak of motif the first shape is the square, but sometimes you just have to experiment with new shapes and designs, like triangles. Here’s a quick and easy triangle motif for your crocheting pleasure.
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 easy crochet project that works up quickly. The size of this Triangular Motif No. 1 is 2”.
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.
