Have you tried any of the clones lace motifs from the Interweave Crochet Fall 2011 through
Fall 2012? I know people who have created stacks of these delicate motifs, and
I can't wait to see what they create.
But if a shawl or garment created entirely of little thread
motifs seems a bit intimidating, why not try crocheting them in yarn or embellishing with these
traditional motifs. Interweave Crochet Assistant
Editor Sarah Read created a beautiful placematt embellished with the Clematis
Here is Sarah to tell you about the newest Clones lace
motifs-available in a free download:
New Clones Crochet Motifs
At last! Sound the fanfare: the final Clones motifs are now
available for download! We're sorry for the delay on these ones, crocheters.
There were some unforeseen complications in the works, but we're thrilled with
the enthusiasm you all have for preserving this art and translating what has so
far been an oral tradition into modern media for everyone to enjoy. We're so
eager to see all of your finished projects! Be sure to post them in the
galleries here on Crochet Me, or
email them to us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I've been hooked by this new Clematis motif, myself. I think
every project is improved with a flower!
