Happy Easter everyone!
I can’t believe it is good Friday tomorrow already. But I am making good on my promise with the primrose bauble pattern, which is now available to you below. It uses simpler stitches than the daffodil bauble, meaning it should be suited to beginners or being whipped up in no time to hang on your Easter tree!
And with that said, I hope that you have a lovely couple of days off and remember not to eat too much chocolate:)
4mm foam ball or toy stuffing
Ricorumi – Pinks (there are so many lovely ricocumi pinks, reds, purples that you can just take your pic to be like the primroses in your garden or make a selection)
3mm crochet hook
