I signed up to design a FREE pattern for a 6 inch square for the Mystery Lap-ghan CAL! I’ve teamed up with 28 other crochet designers to share 36 free crochet square patterns. This CAL started in September and it is now finally my turn! This is my first square that I ever designed, and I love it! The name of this square was based on the center of the square which looks like a swirled sun. I really hope that you all like it!
