Today I am sharing a free pattern with you! I designed this pattern years ago and have decided to place it on the blog as a free pattern. Here shortly, I plan to begin a CAL (crochet-along) with this pattern. This will make a great Christmas gift for lots of folks. The pattern is easy and quick and the yarn is easy-care, so you can make them for just about anyone.

Won't you join me? 

Decide how many you want to make and get your yarn and hook ready. 

You can purchase Berroco Comfort from Patternworks they also have discontinued colors including the color I used #9713 Dusk.
