The Cross C2C Square is the 2nd free crochet square in the Easter Blanket Crochet a Long (CAL)!
So simple and pretty made in just two colors! The Cross is a perfect addition to my Easter Blanket but would also be great as a wall hanging for your Easter decor!
Made with Caron Simply Soft yarn which gives it just the right touch of sheen and softness. The lovely pastel colors are perfect for spring.
