Easter Basket C2C Square Blanket Graphgan Crochet a Long (CAL) Part 3

I just love how cute this square turned out! A little pink bunny peeking his head out over the top of the basket next to a multicolored Easter egg!

This pattern is also available as an ad-free, printable PDF! You can purchase the individual pattern, or if you love PDFs, you might want to check out my Lifetime Membership. It’s an awesome deal! Never pay for one of my PDFs again!! (Or, scroll down for the free version!)

This square is just slightly more challenging than the previous squares with several color changes throughout the square but so worth it!
