Cold november wnd is promicing to bring a heavy snowfalls in a couple of days. And so for today's lesson I've chosen a figure 19 from Priscilla boof of Irish Crochet #1. This motif looks so mush like a snowflake, that I could not resist it. It's a very simple element, which can be used as a motif or a part of a mesh, combuned with any lacy square motif. As usual I've taken Violet Yarnart thread and 1 mm crochet.
For almost a year I had a desire to translate "The Book of Irich crochet " into russian, providing it with step-by-step instrustions on each motif. And finally I've started it. Today's element is a flower/leaf with three petals, you can find it on page 5 and 6, figure 14 and 15. Without a central picot row this motif can serve as a shamrock, and with it looks like a tradescantia flower. Just like any element in IC it is crocheted over padding cord, so you have to prepare yarn for a PC and a working thread.
