Apostrophe Crochet Motif

May 21, 2010

Begin with a sliding loop. Chain 9. 1 sc in 2nd chain from hook. 1 sc in next chain. 1 hdc in each of next 2 chains. 1 dc in each of next 2 chains. 1htr in next chain. 10 tr in next chain (the sliding loop). Now, going back up on the other side: 1 htr, then 2 dc, the 2 hdc, then 1 sc, then ss in the top stitch. Tie off.

I made the motifs above with a variety of yarns, all using an “F” hook. Sizes vary from 3 1/2 x 1 7/8 (variegated chenille – the really dark one at the top) to 2 3/4 x 1 1/2 (smallest blue one).

This a great motif to incorporate into freeform pieces because it is very flexible & conforms to different shapes. It can also form the basis of a paisley shape by adding additional rounds and decreasing on one side to pull the top around.
