Day 189 and Wildflowers
Sometimes all you need is a single common color to make everything else look like it goes together. For a field of wildflowers, it's usually the green grass or yellow wheat all around it. For this hexagonal flower scarf, I made all of the many colored flowers match just by making the center section the same color for all of them.
Find yourself this book: Beyond the Square, Crochet Motifs and use Motif number 36 to make this scarf. The great thing about slightly pointed hexagonal motifs is that you only have 4 points of connection. This means that you can slip stitch your motifs together as you go and only 2 points are attached at any one time. It's fast, it's easy and it's satisfying to be able to make all the motifs and not sew anything together at the end. I'm not sure I can work any other way!
