Stiffening thread is one of the many things I like to do when working with crocheted motifs. This quick and fun motif can be used for many things but I loved connecting 5 together over a balloon to create a crocheted motif bowl! See the pictures of those at the end of the post. But for now, check out this thread motif crochet pattern!
