Chloe Circle in A Square ~

Free Crochet Pattern

Chloe Circle in A Square is the 20th Square in the Squaring The Circle CAL 2018! I chose to name this weeks square Chloe because I think the name is pretty. I like how the stitches and yarn fell right into place when making Chloe. She is quick and easy to stitch up and a little on the fancy side. This square can also be used for other projects and will always be available. Enjoy!
