Motif: 12”

From an afghan with motifs the same color, to size 10 thread to make a table runner, to lace weight yarn for a alluring lacy stole, the picture motif is a wonderful selection when you need a motif.

Not only is it the design overall that makes this motif unique, it the myriad of possibilities with color choice. Work one motif with the center sunburst worked all in one color, with the frame in alternating colors, and the next opposite - a strobe-light color in the circular center, then a white or contrasting single color for the entire frame.
