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.

  1. Just a note on instructions, round 9 is all dc’s, then Rd 10 says to work a SC into each sc.
    I’m enjoying making this lovely square.

    Hi Charlotte
    Thank you for letting me know about that error – I do apologize for that.
    I have edited the pattern and I have added a photo to help as well.

  3. Round 6 isn’t adding up for me. I have 2 extra stitches from round 5 between corners if I do it as written. I have to skip 3 when I chain 1.
