Ruby Red Medallion Motif

Best Blog Tips



This is a very easy and lovely medallion motif that you can use for an almost endless variety of projects, from shawls, to afghans to bags (with a lining) to even table runners! Of course, for a runner, you will change the yarn to a worsted cotton, but this medallion is really very verstile. Hope you add it to your collection of favorites.
