Crochet Motifs

The weather here has turned a little bit cooler which has made me think about making some scarfs and jackets or coats.

Usually it is pretty warm here so I getĀ  much taken by surpriseĀ  a bit when it does start cooling down!

I love crochet and I love the idea of using crochet motifs. I was surfing the web just before and noticed this site:

and immediately fell in love with these paisley motifs which the blog author saw in a book.

I would love to make them as I love paisley designs.

Maybe I should try to make some?

*Edit*

Ooh! I just read Patti’s post more carefully and noticed that she offers a free PDF with instructions as to how to make the above mentioned paisley motifs. Must have a go now!
