  • single crochet (sc)
  • half double crochet (hdc)
  • double crochet (dc)

I’m still experimenting with how to stiffen them to use as a garland (they are very floppy and like to curl, you’ll see). Spray starch didn’t do what I wanted it to but, I found a couple products and a recipe using white glue to stiffen lace online.

I’m also curious how these motifs would look in different yarn weights and materials so, please feel free to experiment and share your finished projects with me.

Not a crocheter but, still want a groovy garland or a cool motif to sew onto your totebag? Share a link to this post with a friend or owner of a small crochet business.
