This week has been crazy hectic guys! I am so glad that I had these squares already made from last week, and so I can just spend the time on the write up. Jasper, my dog, has been poorly all week, and so I haven’t been updating people on Instagram or here as I have been focused on him. Thankfully he is feeling much better now; he is definitely on the mend and so I can get back to this glorious CAL! I am always up to try something new, and so if anyone has any recommendations for new squares to feature in this CAL, or even a fancy new stitch to try out, please do contact me, as I am always happy to hear from you all!

Let’s get crocheting then guys!

I have attached the crochet chart for this square below, but it contains more rows than our square. I decided to keep them in for those of you who wish to make the square a bit bigger, but if you’re sticking to 12cm squares then please just go up to row 7 in the chart then follow row 8 above.
