Details of swap:

For this swap, you will crochet a variety of motifs for 1, 2, or 3 partners. First time swappers are limited to 1 partner. For each partner, you will need to make a minimum of 7 different motifs that total at least 25 inches. For a circle or square motif just measure across with width. If you are using motifs that are not symmetrical (such as a rectangle), you should use the smallest measurement to calculate your total inches.

This swap is scavenger hunt style, meaning you get to pick your motifs from the variety of options listed below:

1. A flower motif
2. An animal or animal themed motif
3. Octagon shaped motif
4. Motif uses bobble stitches
5. A lacy motif
6. Bullion stitch
7. Plant or veggie themed (pineapple, leaf, etc)
8. Motif is worked diagonally
9. Motif uses hairpin lace or broomstick lace
10. Motif is made up of smaller motifs (think grannys daughters, yo-yos, etc)
11. Tunisian crochet motif
12. A heritage motif
13. Motif is made of at least 3 various shades or tones of one color
14. Motif is made with complimentary colors (opposite from each other on the color wheel)
15. "Design it yourself" and include pattern that you write
16. Sender's Choice


*Explanation/idea of heritage motif:
 Quote from craftADDchick
"An "ethnic" motif. For example, I'm of Irish (25%), Scottish (25%), Lithuanian (25%), and Heinz 57 (25%... but probably a mix of English, Irish, Scottish and who knows what else... Gramps was from Maine from way back) descent. So, a shamrock, or a "plaid" motif, or a flag motif... or a ketchup bottle"

Note: If you are using motifs that are not symmetrical (such as a rectangle), you should use the smallest measurement to calculate your total inches.

Other rules:
*Only use worsted weight acrylic, unless your partner(s) indicates otherwise.
*All tails need to be woven in, unless your partner indicates otherwise.
*Communication is very important to me, please be sure to send pms to both myself and your partner when you send and receive. Poor communication will be noted in feedback.
*Please somehow label all your motifs with the scavenger hunt category, pattern name, and source so that your partner and other swap members viewing the gallery will know where it came from, because we will want to duplicate them!  The best way to do this is to tie a numbered tag onto the motif and then include a sheet with pattern name and source or typed pattern if you want!

I sent mine in, too! I want to get started soon! I usually test out a motif or two (and keep it for myself) before making one for my partner. So, I not only add to my stash, II make sure I've worked out the pattern, too.
