Pattern Description:

In sixth grade my art teacher taught our class about Impressionism and the skill of pointillism--making little dots in a pattern that creates an image.

This Pointillism Posie is inspired from that concept. Each little "dot" motif in a range of colors creates a beautiful picture of a posie--clearly seen better at a distance--just like with a pointillism painting. I love the art of it, and creating it was so much fun as the Posie "came into view".

The pattern is a simple little octagonal motif completed with 29 different colors of worsted weight yarn. This is a super stash buster as most of the colors are used to make only 1 or 2 motifs. Only two colors require more than one skein of yarn. And the join-as-you-go method makes for ease in assembling and weaving in ends.

The pattern includes a PHOTO TUTORIAL with many pictures showing the pattern in more details.

Pattern is written in US crochet terms.

It's size is perfect for a wall-hanging or small throw to snuggle under. It would even make a nice shower gift for bride or baby.

I hope you enjoy making it as much as I did creating it!

Cheerful, Creative, Crocheter and Collector of all things Colorful describes me to a C--er, I mean a T. My sweet, left-handed granny taught me (a righty) to crochet when I was but a youngster. My first project was a hideously long scarf for my dad. It seems I just didn't know when to stop--something my teachers told me in school, too! Although crochet and other craftiness have always been part of ...
