    I just learned how to crochet. Copied this pattern and can hardly wait to make one. It’s just absolutely gorgeous. Thank you for posting so many beautiful patterns for beginners.

    this one is so very easy and pretty! I LOVE using up scraps 🙂 The center uses such tiny bits that this is a wonderful way to use them up and create something lovely!
