Must-Have Mini CAL - Orange

Must-Have Mini CAL - Orange

A fresh glass of orange juice for breakfast in the sun… who doesn’t love that? The orange definitely had to be included in our Must-Have Mini CAL!

This time I designed full oranges (for the observant viewer: have you seen the little lines on top of the oranges?) but also slices for in the sangria. Cheers! And happy crocheting.

Next week we’ll work on something in a shade of blue. Do you have any idea which fruity design will be next? Follow us on our social media channels to make sure you don’t miss a thing!

Love, Manon
