Today is International Crochet Day 2013

What is International Crochet Day? Well, it’s a day to celebrate all things crochet – so definitely a day to get your hook and yarn out and crochet away, anywhere, preferably in public so the world can see us celebrating!

But I have a confession, I forgot it! Consequently I had absolutely no plans on what to do to celebrate. So I sat at my keyboard 4 hours ago and wondered what to do. It didn’t take long – I decided to design a motif today. And here it is – The International Crochet Day Triangle Motif:

ICD motif

Like so many of my spontaneous designs, it wasn’t planned to be a triangle – in fact I set out to design a hexagon because, as you know, I love hexagons. Somewhere in round 3 it became a triangle.

This is a nice dense fabric and would be ideal for a blanket.
