100 Micro Crochet Motifs by Steffi Glaves features patterns and charts for tiny crochet creations! I had so much fun diving into this new book from David & Charles Publishing, and it was really hard to choose what I wanted to crochet first. Since we are nearing St. Patrick’s Day, I decided that I would start with a four leaf clover from the Leaves section of this beautiful book! Take a peek at how it went!
Where to find 100 Micro Crochet Motifs
You can find 100 Micro Crochet Motifs where ever books are sold, which is great news! My preferred method is ordering on Amazon at the moment, to avoid going shopping during the pandemic (that feels so weird to say, but future readers, it was a thing!). You can find the book on sale here >> AMAZON LINK for $22.99.
The book itself is beautiful, and such a great quality! The vinyl cover is vibrant and all of the photos are super clear and well layed out. This book features the written pattern along with charts to accompany each of the 100 designs. 100 designs is a lot! I was a bit skeptical that there wouldn’t be some overlap or some motifs that look very similar, but I was so happy to see so many options and different ideas here!
My first motif from 100 Micro Crochet Motifs
St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner here, and so when I saw the clover motif in the leaves section of the book, that’s the motif I went for!
The chapters in the book are very fun to flip through and include subjects like:
I found the clover to be easy to make and very clear, especially with the use of the crochet chart below the written pattern. My copy of 100 Micro Crochet Motifs features UK terminology, but there is a very helpful conversion chart included at the back of the book.
If you are better with reading the written pattern rather than relying on the chart, and you get a bit held up by the UK terminology, I highly recommend just quickly jotting down the short patterns in the US terms on a piece of scrap paper so you can follow along. Each motif is only a few lines, so it is super easy to convert the terms.
The possibilities are endless…
I had so much fun working up my clover, and while I was crocheting it, I was thinking about all of the possible ways to use this little motif! Mine is a bit bigger than the micro version as I used a larger hook and yarn combination (which is something fun to consider, they don’t HAVE to be micro!). I ended up turning the clover into a pretty skirt for a mixed media art piece. It was so much fun to whip this up!
