Autumn Moon Square, Free Crochet Pattern + Video


The Autumn Moon Square is a gorgeous seasonal square that you can use to make a lovely blanket for fall!  Post stitches create fun and unique textures throughout.  Try making one in cotton yarn too for a gorgeous autumnal dishcloth!
I'm so excited that this pattern is part of the Charity Cozy Fall Makealong going on now through October 28th!


A portion of proceeds from this event will be donated to Cure Childhood Cancer.The purpose of the MAL is to raise funds for the non profit organization Cure Childhood Cancer.

Here's how the event works:


  Together with the MAL (make along) a fundraising raffle is hosted. People purchasing the bundle automatically get an entry to the raffle. Prizes include yarn, gift vouchers and lots more from various crafty brands!  Grab the pattern bundle here!
