- 00:12 ## Using multiple wools to hook a motif
Post tip: I probably started at the stem with a piece of wool that I would never have considered including with red until I gathered red strips to go into my ring sorters. During that process, this single strip blended with the red.
I hooked that part way around the outside. Before I got to the end, I started a strip in the lower left and hooked that part way. I then went back and finished the first strip. Then I finished the second. This way they sort of wrap around each other and cleverly avoid the bullseye look of concentric circles.
Next I hooked the darkest semi circle, then the yellow center.
Then I filled in as needed with a plaid and a solid red.
