With so many gorgeous crochet patterns available it is extremely hard to just pick one pattern to share each month. They are all beautiful in their own right and we all know how much time, love, energy and skill has gone into each and every pattern.
Designers put their heart, body and soul into them and they all deserve to be shared. Sadly I have to only pick one. 😢
This months crochet crush no exception and has the added bonus of it being a free pattern. I take my hat off to any designer who gives their talent and hard work away for free. The amount of time they must spend on creating their masterpieces just to give I away, warms my heart truly it does because why should anyone work for free especially the amount of hours they must have taken to design, make and write a pattern. Also the time they spend with their testers and the crochet community, once it has been released.
