CROSHADES for Australia day

I just got back from Australia Day Holidays and getting ready for a productive year writing crochet and knitting patterns and making amigurumi critters. I would like to share our fun with you and I will start with the youngsters modelling the one and only CROSHADES  from SQUIRREL PICNIC .  You can crochet your own croshades  using Jennifer’s free pattern! Croshades at Erskine falls for Australia Day
