Motifs Overload

Been working hard in taking on my African Flower Challenge.
So far, I have made 248 motifs (out of the 540 required - made adjustments out of the initial 480 motifs estimated). Here are some of the motifs stacked up before they are sewn together.
I figured the efficient (and fastest) way for me to crochet these motifs is to make the required number of motifs for one set of color combinations in one go. But earlier, I already stitched up motifs just so I have an idea how they look like together.
The picture above is a "cluster" of motifs. Each cluster is made up of 22-23 motifs. I calculated that I need 24 clusters to complete the 4x6 ft. size requirement. I have completed (meaning sewn together) 6 clusters and currently have 131 waiting to be sewn together. I'm planning to crochet the remaining balance of 292 motifs before sewing them up in clusters. I am planning to sew the entire blanket by connecting all the clusters I made. Gets? :p

I'm almost there! My fingers might get 6-pack abs once I finish the entire blanket. I hope I get to unveil it soon.

  2. it's ok, i was just curious of how many balls of yarn you used, kasi ang liit ng monaco at cannon yarn balls diba? :) been planning to also make an afgan out of this african flower/hexa granny pattern, but i'll be using lesser colors. i'm a bit OC when it comes to weaving ends and changing colors kasi and also to save time na rin. :) i used to think that this hobby of mine is so manang because the one's who taught me where my single lolas pa, so i'm really glad when i found your blog, a pinoy blog who shares 'crochet adventure'

    1. Yep, they're all single strands of mercerized crochet yarn. Pretty tasking work. I think it becomes really cool when you use lots of colors - that way, di na sya "manang effect." good luck with your afghan project! Share it when you're done na with it :)
