Must-Have Mini CAL - Lemon

Must-Have Mini CAL - Lemon

If this trio doesn’t make you thirsty, we don’t know what will. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! Of crochet them, that’s also an option.

This pattern is the most extensive one of the CAL: it includes instructions for a full lemon, half a lemon, and a lemon slice. Save the best for (almost) last, right?! We’re definitely fans!

Next week we’ll present our final pattern, which will bring us to the end of our Must-Have Mini CAL – because sadly, all good things come to an end as well.

In the meantime, have fun making your lemons!

Love, Manon

You’ll only need a little 102 Marble for next week’s fruit. You can use up all other colors.
