A Star in the Sky - 6 Inch Afghan Square | www.thestitchinmommy.com

I’m so excited to be participating in the Mystery Lapghan CAL . I am teaming up with 29 other crochet designers to share 36 free crochet square patterns for an amazing, one-of-a-kind lapghan! Every week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, from August 17th through November 6th, a new square will be released. You can join the Mystery Group CAL Facebook Group to see the CAL schedule and squares that have already posted and to also get help with the CAL. Also for those participating in the CAL there will be some great prizes to be awarded. Stay tuned to learn what those prizes will be and how you can qualify to have your name entered into the drawing! Happy Crocheting!
