Field of Daisies, Crochet Motif for a Tablecloth, Video Tutorial and Symbol Chart

Recently I've been enjoying crocheting with white thread, but I thought it would be fun to have little splashes of color in my thread crochet projects now and then!

So here it is, a bit of yellow in the middle of a daisy flower motif!

These motifs would make such a gorgeous tablecloth or, as one viewer of my Youtube channel suggested, a lacy curtain for a sunroom! 

The motif measures about 4 inches across. It is very easy and quick to crochet! 

I used Red Heart Crochet Classic Thread size 10 and crochet hook 1.6 mm. 

I recently started sketching symbol charts for my projects (in addition to filming video tutorials), and so many of my viewers and followers find they very useful! 

You can watch my video tutorial on Youtube (the symbol chart is included in the video)! 

Or you can purchase the symbol chart in a PDF format from my Etsy or Ravelry shops.

4 Best Motifs for Tablecloth, Table Runner, Table Topper, Placemats, Summer Blouse or Top, Lace Cardigan, Bedspread, etc

If you are looking for a pattern for a crochet motif to make a tablecloth, a table runner, a table topper, lacy placemats, a summer top or a blouse, a lacy cardigan, or a bedspread, you might find it on this page! 

Here are four patterns for unique and easy to crochet motifs that I created! 

I also made it very easy for crocheters, especially the beginner ones, to be able to crochet any of these motifs. 

For each pattern, I created a detailed video tutorial, including the instructions on how to join the motifs together. 

I also sketched a symbol chart for each motif for those of you who prefer symbol charts! 

I hope you'll like these motifs, or at least one of them! 

Happy crocheting!

Delicate Lace Crochet Stitch, Only ONE Repeating Row, Crochet Video Tutorial and Symbol Chart

Here is a delicate lace stitch with tilted shells and picots! 

The pattern has only one repeating row, which is very easy to remember.

I worked this sample with 100% mercerized cotton thread size 10 and a steel crochet hook 1.6 mm.

However, this stitch will look equally beautiful if done with yarn. Category 2 or 3 yarns would work wonderfully!

I can see a beautiful table runner worked in this stitch. Or perhaps a rectangular lacy shawl! 

Or if you are an advanced crocheter and will be able to figure out how to do decreases and increases, a summer cardigan made in this stitch will look fabulous! 

On my new YouTube channel called White Thread Crochet I share video tutorials and symbol charts, which I sketch by hand myself. 

You can watch my tutorial and take a screenshot of the symbol chart. 

Or if you prefer to have it in a PDF format, you can purchase this pattern (written instructions + symbol chart) from my Etsy shop

It is Official! I am Going Back to Thread Crochet!

Hello crochet friends and fellow bloggers! When I started this blog in 2011, it was mostly about thread crochet! I even had a feature called Doily of the Week, and each new week I displayed a new doily that I crocheted the week before! 

I was also crocheting many other projects with thread, such as bookmarks, lace edgings, tablecloths, etc. 

Then I started moving on to other types of crochet. For instance, I've made tons of baby blankets and baby hats! The next phase was lacy scarves and shawls! And I did all kinds of other crochet projects! 

 But now it's time to go back! 

I recently purchased a big ball of Aunt Lydia's classic crochet thread size 10, pulled out my 1.6 mm steel hook, and started stitching! 

But I didn't stop there! Since this is a new chapter of my crochet journey, I started a brand new YouTube channel to keep me motivated, and to share my projects with my viewers and followers! 

I named the new channel White Thread Crochet! 

If you are interested to learn more about this lacy motif, which was the very first project on my new channel, you can watch my video on YouTube!
