side B

This motif is relatively simple to do, but can be repeated to give a really nice border, as below.

or all-over design as below.

To make my motif:

Yarn Type: DK Acrylic in colours black and honey, both left over from a previous project.

Needle Type: UK size 4.00mm crochet hook.

Method: as below.
Abbreviations

dcif (double crochet worked in the front post)
dcib (double crochet worked in the back post)
ch (chain)
dc (double crochet)

Foundation Row Col B: Work a row of filet mesh consisting of 17 cells, place last loop on stitch holder and set aside
Foundation Row Col A:Work a row of filet mesh consisting of 18 cells

Place colour A layer on top of colour B layer, with working yarn of both pieces to the right (I usually hold the two layers together in the middle with a split ring stitch marker as this stops the pieces twisting)
