Quote of the day: The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision. Helen Keller
Boy oh boy; how time flies even when you’re not having fun! But I guess life just happens eh. I spent time cleaning up my kitchen floor from my landlord’s leaking dishwasher. It just poured through the ceiling and burst 2 of the foamy type ceiling tiles. It took a while to clean up and then the wife came home and started the dishwasher and again I had to contact them and then clean up their dirty dish water in my kitchen. Yuk! And now they won’t repair the ceiling. Life in the fast lane eh?
I love the above quote by Helen Keller. I have to keep my vision on what is important in my life: crocheting!
In my last blog post I included a free crochet graph of motifs, etc. of a beautiful top. However, most of these free patterns don’t give instructions (or no English instructions) of how to join the motifs together. So it takes a lot of thought and try-outs to obtain the desired results. There are several methods of how to go about joining crochet pieces that I’ve seen on the internet but I have a disability that makes it difficult for me to comprehend some instructions. So there are times when I just have to focus on what I am able to do and just keep trying until I get it right, at least for me.
Each of these 2 different motifs have 16 points so one motif is joined to another motif by joining 3 points to 3 points. So I unraveled the last row of the motifs and just joined them by following the pattern but when joining to another motif, ch 1, sl st into adjoining motif’s point, ch 1 and continue pattern like this.
So 3 are joined at the points, leave one point open, join 3, etc. when going around. I also used the same method in joining the little squares in between all the motifs. I inserted the squares after I had finished assembling all the motifs.
If you don’t understand what my method is, please let me know in the comments below and then I will make up some pictures of how to do it. I’m just learning how to make patterns; it’s quite tedious work!
Thanks for peeking! Have a great day crocheting!
