Abigail Circle in A Square ~

Free Crochet Pattern

Abigail Circle in A Square is the 19th Square in the Squaring The Circle CAL 2018! I chose to name this weeks square Abigail. I love the name and it’s one of my favorite characters on When Calls The Heart. The stitches and yarn just fall right into place making Abigail gorgeous. She is quick and easy to stitch up. This square can also be used for other projects and will always be available. Enjoy!
