Frilly Catherine Wheels

I had a small amount of yarn left over after completing my Twilight Ripples blanket so searched on crochet blogs for something that I could make with it.  It didn't take me long to find According to Matt's Japanese Flower blanket which is an absolute work of art.  Using his blanket as inspiration I replicated the circular shapes which look like Frilly Catherine Wheels.

My small bundle of yarn would only stretch as far as a scarf that just fits inside a coat collar.  As I made it at the back end of October before I realised that I wasn't crocheting properly, it was made using my 'how not to crochet' method but it doesn't look at odds in any way to me.

The Frilly Catherine Wheels don't take long to make and look really lovely once they are all joined together. I'd like to use this motif again to make something on a larger scale in the future.
