I found this beautiful yarn (Universal Yarn – Classic Shades – Canyon) at a knitting event and yarn show. While there, I also saw a shawl made of motifs, and that’s when I decided I wanted to crochet something similar.
I like this star motif pattern, and combined with the rosettes, I think it makes a lovely dress-up wrap / shawl / long scarf. The final shape is rectangular.
I provided instructions for blocking crocheted motifs in a previous post.
The yarn is soft and warm, and definitely colorful. This would also look pretty in all black. The airiness of the pattern allows it to wrapped in numerous ways.
If you enjoy crocheting motifs, make one big granny square afghan for a gift.
You might also want to crochet flower-shaped washcloths.
