Coaster or Scrubbie free crochet pattern
Retro Bloom is a funny little thing. Right now, I’m going through and doing a lot of admin on my site, cleaning up patterns, and making things look prettier for you and me. I tend to get hyperfocused on these tasks and don’t realize it until a couple days later when my eyes are crossing and I’m starting to twitch. (Almost true.)
Enter YARN stage left. It really is true that crocheting and working with other hobbies can relax you and soothe your nervous system. As if it was automatic, I picked up my hook and started to play. Ta-Da! 15 minutes later, I had two of these made. Not only do they work up quickly, but they are so crazy simple to make. Try the Retro Bloom Scrubbie free crochet pattern. It’s a great touch for your craft fair tables.
