Yoko Suzuki's Square
I was looking for some bedspread patterns from my books, and found this particular motif irresistible. You got to love the popcorn stitches in there, it takes too much time to make, but is worth the effort.
Since the pattern did not have a name, I just called it by the designer's name ;) Its supposed to measure 40cm square using size 3 thread. But I used size 8 thread and 1.5mm hook, so mine turned out to be 8 inches square, or just a teeny bit bigger than 20cm square. The pattern required 24 motifs. I estimate 90 motifs using size 10 or size 8 thread, to be able to make the same size of bedspread shown in the book:
I'm considering making a baby blanket instead, using the motif. But, like most of you, I do have long list of patterns to do... Maybe I should go look for a simpler motif ;)
UPDATE: I searched for the book online, and found one up for bid on ebay.
I don't know the seller though.
