For lack of a better name...

...this is, apparently, "motif #2".

You know, I've been thinking about these motif books. Some of them, like 201 Crochet Motifs, Blocks, Projects and Ideas, offer project ideas at the back of the book. Ways to turn some of the 201 little patterns into bigger projects. Sweaters, hats, afghans and the like.

Others, like Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs where today's pattern came from, don't. All you'll find in it are patterns, with no suggestions for what the heck to do with your pile of crocheted bits when you're done.

Which begs the question, who else is out there randomly churning out motifs and squares for no good reason? Who is using these books?

Could there possibly be another 365 - A Crochet Odyssey out there?

Could there?

Friday the 13th. It needed some mystery.

I love the idea of your crochet odyssey--kind of like those pattern-a-day calendars, but cooler, because you can do the work and we can watch. :-)

BTW, Beyond the Square started out having projects, but when all was said and done, they didn't seem to fit the style of the book, so an editorial decision was made to leave them out. We put in the drawings instead, to inspire you with what to do with the motifs.
Have fun!
