Kristen TenDyke - Star Motif Scarf

  Star Motif Scarf  
  Crochet motifs are one of my favorite things to crochet. They work up faster (and with less yarn) than solid crochet methods. Plus, I find that designing motif garments can be a fun challenge. The easy part is coming up with the first motif. Once I’ve finished and measured it, I draw up a schematic by repeating the shape of the motif into the shape of the garment. Designing the Star Scarf was relatively easy because there’s only one size and the scarf is worked straight. For sweater design, figuring out the layout of the motifs for all the sizes can take lots of trial and error. If the motif is really large, the finished measurements will have a large gap between sizes, which limits the audience for the garment. Keeping the motifs small makes it easier to come up with more sizes...
