Make a crocheted shocking pink kerchief on your weekend? Why not? Give it a try! I make the free crochet pattern that can be adjusted to the size you want. So, it is convenient to all ages. Please share the pattern with friends and family, but please do not resell it and do not use the pattern to sell the kerchief without my permission. Let me know your result by mentioning me on Ravelry (Restidiah) or Instagram @restidia.
P.S : Thanks for being my muse to the stranger lady I met at the veggie shop
