Must-Have Mini CAL 2 - lettuce
You can’t go wrong with a little lettuce, am I right? Whether it’s a side dish or a meal, we love it!
This lettuce leaf gets a lot of depth by using 3 colors. It gets nice and curly because of the amount of double crochet stitches on top.
Make one as a garnish or to use between a sandwich. Or make a bunch and put them together as a head of lettuce. Have fun!
Don’t forget to share your lettuce with us on social media using #MustHaveMiniCAL. We love seeing all your gorgeous photos and beautiful creations every week.
