July Free Pattern!!!

Here it is as promised! The first free pattern!

It is a pattern that I designed when I was first learning how to crochet. I wanted something quick that I could complete in the little bit of free time I had from work, kids and housework.

This pattern is very simple, easy and so quick! I made about 100 of them for Christmas the year I designed it. I still make these on a regular basis after all this time.

It's also a great pattern for young beginners to learn how to crochet in the round.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Please feel free to post photos of your finished project here! I would love to see it!
