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.

    Hi – I have fixed the typo in Round 7 – it should be 3 CH in each corner.
    The following round have 2 CH in each corner!
    Thank you.

  2. Corner 1 has CH 3 turning the corner, but the subsequent corners have CH2 turning the corner. Shouldn’t they all be the same?

    Thank you 🙂 Fixed the error!

  4. You still have an error in RND 6. The first SC in the 7DC should be also 9DC. I love your patterns, I will send you a pic of the finish product with different colors.
