Beyond the Square: Motif #140

Motif #140

Category: Unusual Shapes

Progress: 51 of 100+

This is another motif from the "unusual shapes" section in the book, and it's probably the most unusual motif of them all, because it's the only 3-dimensional one. It was very easy to make, but honestly: I have no idea what to make with a motif like this :)

Shared Gallery: link up your motifs!


  1. How big is it? Maybe you can use it in your hair or for a little girl in her hair if it's not to big something like that.

  2. Hang it in you Christmas tree?

  3. Coral inspired decorations for a tea cosy?

  4. Hello Barbara
    Now lets you could make it whatever size you want depending on gauge then a small version with a bead in the centre or button or....could become a brooch. It could also be used as a bobble at the end of a curtain tie back or a sun catcher ornament. It could be used to make a key ring.
    Definitely agree with Stel's comment here if made in a glittery yarn it would look good on the Christmas Tree.

    I've now joined The Crochet Boulevard too...had to!

    Can I invite you to pop by my blog and follow me if you like what you see!

  5. Wowsers!
    I agree with everyone else's ideas!!
    It really is very pretty indeed.

  6. Nice - looks like one of those shower scrubbers to me. :)

  7. I love it! Enjoying reading all about your challenge just wish I had a bit more time to do it myself.

    Like Debi said it does look slightly like a bath puff, maybe make it bigger and add a chain loop for hanging?

    Can't wait for your next motif x

  8. You made a full sized one well done Barbara, I got a bit fed up with all those increases and just made mine small :)

  9. Very pretty! My first thought was a rose, so I agree with Amanda; put a button in the center and a pin on the back to make it a brooch. But I like the other ideas too.

  10. Very pretty! I am actually working on a review now for this book, so it is nice to see how you are making out with the patterns. Would you mind if I linked to your challenge in my review?
