Free Motif of the Month ~ Cobweb

August 2016: Cobweb Motif
August 2016: Cobweb Motif

I call this motif the cobweb because it reminds me a cobweb in it’s design. The motif uses back post double crochet to create the color bursts and cobweb effect. I used varigated yarn, but you can change up the pattern with solid colors (black and grey would be a great Halloween blanket).

I go through the back post double crochet very slowly, so if you’ve never tried this stitch before, this is a great tutorial to finally try a post stitch.
