Monday’s Motif: 6 Ways from Sunday

Here’s an easy and fun motif to crochet!  Make a few blocks for a pillow or a bag. Whip up a few more than that and you could crochet up a blanket.

Hook: I used a 5.5 mm/I hook which yielded a motif 4 ½”x 4 ½” corner to corner. Of course, you can make it larger or smaller by changing hooks.

Yarn used : Red Heart Spring Green and Red Heart Hunter Green

Crochet Terms: American
