Catherine Circle in A Square ~

Free Crochet Pattern

Catherine Circle in A Square is the 9th Square in the Squaring The Circle CAL 2018! For some reason Catherine is a little cranky like one of her sisters. Not sure where they got it from. Haha However, I think we have whipped her into shape. Hopefully, she will be on her best behavior. This square can also be used for other projects and will always be available. Enjoy!
