Sometimes you will hear about granny squares referred to as a "motif." I was wondering exactly what a motif is and does it encompass something more than just making a bunch of squares. Well, I found my answer through "Crochet Me", a community of crocheters brought together by Interweave Publishers. Toni Rexroat, the assistant editor for Interweave Crochet Magazine, defines a motif as a repeated structure or recurring theme. When put together, motifs create a striking larger structure that is better than the sum of the motifs.
