Just Made It – New Motif of the Month

Wagon Wheel Motif

Even though there are only 4 days left in the month, this is the October Motif of the Month: Wagon Wheel Motif. This is a fun and fairly easy motif. The center ring uses a special stitch called a DC puff.

I not only show you how to do that special stitch  with the step-by-step video tutorial, but I also show you how to join new colors with a special technique that keeps you from having to use chain stitches at the beginning of your rounds.

Get Ready for the 4th With This Free Motif

I’ve got a new motif of the month ready for everyone. It’s just in time for your 4th of July celebrations.

This motif is about 4″ across which makes it the perfect size for a patriotic coaster. Or, instead of using worsted weight yarn, you can substitute bulky and make a hot plate trivet. Don’t stop at just making them for your table though– make a dozen and string them up for a decorative bunting for your next backyard bash. The possibilities are endless with this super easy and fun motif. You can get started by watching the video below and then go download the free pattern here.
