Introduction

I’ve been asked about this pattern, so I’m going to try to post the instructions here.

It’s a very simply square.

Materials List

I used acrilic wool in the color mustard

hook nr 3

Finished Size

about 16 cm (6.299″)

Gauge

4 cm (1.575″) for the first row

Notes

Well, forgive me for the poor explanation of the pattern…

If it’s not to bad, I’ll try to post the square Cruz de Encaje pattern 😀
