We are Starting a New "Crochet A Long".
I will release one 6 inch Square each Month Using
the Month's Birthstone as inspiration.
Each Square will be a 6 inch Square that I design.
There will be a written pattern, Photo tutorial, as well as,
a video to help you.
The First Square to be released is the
January Garnet Square.

I have made a photo tutorial, for those
who prefer a written pattern.
