Beyond the Square: Motif #14

Motif #14

Category: Circles

Progress: 1 of 100+

One of the first motifs I've made for this Challenge - although I can't remember which one was definitely the first one. I always like adding white (or a very light shade of crème) to the colors I've picked. Here I've used three different colors + white, in the book the motif is two-colored (red and green). This is a very easy and pretty motif, with lots of front post stitches. Because of those stitches, the motif curled a bit to the front (the author mentions that in the book as well) - it's not really a problem, because I'm blocking all the motifs, so it's nice and flat now. I like it a lot!

Shared Gallery: link up your motifs!


  1. I love this one Barbara.. and like you, I do love a little flash of something zingy in a motif. This is very similar to the 'Sunny Spread' square (Ravelry), but without the squaring off :)x

  2. Alle Squares Motive, bisher, sehen super aus.

  3. This is a beautiful first motif. I like the color combination you chose; it is so cute.
    Thanks again for organizing this challenge. I am having lots of fun. And we will inspire each other in our way through the book.
    I already set up a special page for the motifs Challenge in my blog. It will be exciting to see it filling up.
    And I love how you set up the shared gallery. Great idea to set it up in groups. Looking forward to see the versions of others.

  4. ja, Du hast recht, liebe Barbara, die Motive sehen in anderen Farb-Kombis immer wieder anders aus...
    Deins hat eine sehr schöne, frühlingsfrische Farbe

    ich freue mich, dass Du eine Galerie eingerichtet hast, vielen Dank dafür, habe mich gleich eingetragen

    liebe Sonntagsgrüße zu Dir von Traudi

  5. I like this one. I'm working on a baby blanket right now that's very, very similar. :)

  6. I definitely think that the white adds a nice touch to the other colors. I tend to do the opposite - adding black to my colors. :)

  7. Schöne Farben! Gefällt mir gut! Hab am Samstag das Buch bestellt! :) Mal sehen wann es kommt.
    Liebe Grüße! Barbina
