You’ve Got Options!

This crochet blanket square is my pattern for the CAL Central “You’ve Got Options” Crochet Along. This crochet along features squares that have the option of being 6 inches or 12 inches. Get a new square every week, and then put them all together for a project. Make all 6 inch squares, all 12 inches squares, or even combine the two! Will you make a scarf? A pillow? A blanket? You’ve got options!
