Inspired by the shape of the hops flower branch and by a trip to Portland, Oregon, where she sampled some fine amber brew, designer Annie Modesitt has married a simple crochet fabric with decorative chain embroidery. This embroidery technique, which is worked with a crochet hook, is quite easy to master and allows for limitless interpretations of new motifs and color combinations when worked on a simple fabric.
