Tutti Frutti Square 9 Crochet Pattern

TUTTI FRUTTI SQUARE 9

The Tutti Frutti Square 9 is the 9th square in my Mystery Make Along.

Join me in the magical, surprise crochet journey of a mystery make along (MMAL) which is a similar to a crochet along (CAL).  The difference is that you do not know what the end project will look like.  The Tutti Frutti Baby Blanket is made up of small, fun to make squares, that will then be joined together and with a border added.

“Share the art within you with the ones you love…”
