The Dragonfly Square was designed as part of the 2021 Stash Busting Sampler Crochet Along being hosted by Heather from The Unraveled Mitten. To learn more about the Crochet Along, visit The Unraveled Mitten HERE. I love crochet texture and anytime I can create a crochet project with gorgeous crochet texture it is so much fun. I used our Leither Co. Dragonfly Worsted to colorway to create the Dragonfly Square which was featured in our August 2019 Leither Collection Subscription Box.
