Giant Flower

This Giant flower, measures over 28" in diameter, drawn to scale before i started, the whole blanket was going to be approx. 6' in diameter but i think a repeat of the flower looks OK too...




several versions of these giant flowers in my sample boxes...

GEOMETRY: Moroccan Lantern design

After a couple of days of some crochet I need to change crafts so todays project is the Moroccan Lantern design.
I worked out how to draw this interlocking design in a size i wanted, with the compass and ruler and cut out a template in card

Now i'm cutting dozens out in wallpaper samples to make a patchwork wall of Moroccan Lanterns in lots of different pale grey, white and ochre colours

TORUS GROWS...

TORUS: an ancient geometrical spiral makes a perfect crochet motif, circle, square or hexagon.

Alize space dyed, cotton yarn takes about 6g per motif depending on the join stitch...

In a Square...




In a Hexagon...



Again as the original circle...

quite a choice for the adaptable TORUS
