Must-Have Mini CAL - Banana

Must-Have Mini CAL - Banana

Number six of our Must-Have Mini CAL is a curvy piece of happiness: let’s go bananas!

A favorite of many a child, and secretly ours too, right? Make a yummie banana and don’t forget to make a few slices as well. Little tip from us.. the slices are especially tasty on a peanut butter sandwich.

Have a good look at the remaining colors of your Mini CAL crochet kit, and you might be able to guess which fruit will be up next week. Share your guess with us on our social media channels @yarnandcolors.com.

Love, Manon
