Sample text

It’s just a matter of semantics and how you choose to attach that shape to others around it. The number of stitches you need to increase on each round to keep the piece flat — not ruffled with too many stitches nor cupped with too few — depends on the height of the stitches in each round. It all has something to do with geometry, circumference, and π, but you really don’t have to know the details. What you do need to know is this: if all the stitches are the same height, follow these rules of thumb to determine how many total stitches need to be increased on each round: The Golden Mean The golden mean refers to a mathematical concept, which in this context says there is a universally appealing proportion of about two-thirds to one-third.

Dk weight: wool Worsted weight: slubbed cotton/acrylic/nylon/elastic Dk weight: kid mohair/silk/metallic Size 10 crochet thread: cotton You will be happiest with your finished work if you choose a yarn that is well suited to your project. Natural fibers like wool, cotton, and alpaca — and blends using those fibers — work well for motif-based crochet because they can be blocked to hold their shape. Soft, flowing yarns like silk and bamboo may not hold their shape as well as wool. Acrylic and other fibers will work also, although care must be taken when blocking to avoid ruining the fabric.

In other words, can you figure out a way to begin on the outside edge of the motif, chain a length to create a path into the center, then work your way from the center outward, connecting to the established chain as you work each round? Have you decided how many motifs you need, and how they should be arranged and where they will touch? Now, can you determine a continuous path around the outside of the motifs, as described on page 38? Clearly, the major benefit of this method is the minimum number of ends to weave in: potentially only two, if your project uses a single ball of yarn.
