– Penelope’s Skipping Stones 12 inch Square –

Penelope’s newest fascination is crocheted housewares and Penelope’s Skipping Stones 12 inch Square crochet pattern was written for a pillow collection she is starting. She was introduced to me by her sister Coraline and they are both hooked on my crochet designs. Coraline had already ordered several pieces from me when Penelope had the idea for her collection. Whimsical Penelope’s Merry Go Round – Free 12 inch Square Crochet Pattern is a big hit with her entire family. I’m so glad because I had a lot of fun making it. (The next image shows the completed square. You may click on the highlighted text or the image to view that pattern.)
