Live Life – Love Life Crochet Pattern Release

This pattern has been under way for quite some time. It could be argued that I have been procrastinating over it, although that wouldn’t be me to do that at all… I actually really enjoy working this pattern and have another sample ready for photography once the light and the weather is more co-operative.

Fingerless Freeform Crochet
