Rose Circle in A Square ~

Free Crochet Pattern

Rose Circle in A Square is the 17th Square in the Squaring The Circle CAL 2018! I chose to name this weeks square Rose because we’ve been getting ready to go to Yellow Rose Fiber Fiesta this weekend.  Isn’t she is lovely? She is quick and easy to stitch up. This square can also be used for other projects and will always be available. Enjoy!
