I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.

    Thank you! Fixed the typos 🙂

  2. In round 5 in the first part after “work 5 DC into next DC; work 1 DC into next 3 DC” should be into next 5 DC
    In round 6 in same place should be next 7 DC

    Thanks for all your work on this CAL. These squares are beautiful.
