New Free Pattern: "Willa"

This is not a new pattern so much as it's a new 'free' one. I used to sell this pattern but then took it off the market so I could reformat it and then share it for free. This is one of the very first patterns I designed, and as such it's not at the same level of my current ones. It's very plain (in my opinion) and not a challenge for the most part. So I am releasing it for free.

Pattern Notes

  • Join all rounds with a SLST to the first stitch of the round, unless otherwise indicated.
  • If a round begins with a "CSDC" you may choose to work a CH 3 instead. It will always count as the first DC of the round unless otherwise noted.
  • I recommend crocheting over your starting thread as you work the beginning rounds.
  • Pattern repeats are marked with an asterisk (*).
