Crochet Motif from Japanese Crochet Motif Book

Bought the Japanese Crochet Motif 300 Book for a while, finally I have time to crochet one of the motifs, there are so many motifs I wanted to try, it was a hard decision to pick which one to crochet.  :)

I plan to use the motifs to crochet a bolero or cardigan, so I found this one, I think it will look to be a bolero or cardigan.  The yarn I used is Elann Baby Cashmere which is fingering yarn, it is so soft, I really enjoy crocheting with it.

The finished size (after block) is about 4.5" x 4.5".  It is a perfect size, I will need 4 motifs for the width and I am thinking 4 - 5 motifs for the length, not sure how long do I want my bolero or cardigan.

I don't think I would start the bolero until I finish my pineapple vest, my pineapple vest is about 2/3 done, hopefully, I would finish by the end of Sept.  I have been very busy with my website, crochet and taking a toddler.

Here is the pic of my motif:
It is #57 in the book.

The motif is from this pretty "Japanese motif and edging 300".

If you are interested in buying this book: Motif and Edging 300 Patterns, I still have one extra copy to sell.
