A romantic texture-rich square inspired by sultry, perfume-filled nights strolling along the golden sands of Africa’s South-Eastern Coast under a Valentine moon, arm-in-arm with your loved one.

My African Valentino is FREE!

Size: 10”x 10/ 26cm x 26cm ( after blocking )
Hook: 4mm/G-6
Crochet Terms: Us/UK
Yarn: Stash Buster Project but I do highly recommend using Scheepjes Colour Crafter, Stone Washed or Catona ( use the recommended hook size. Take note: a smaller hook will render a smaller square ).

This square was designed to be used as a component in an Afghan or a decorative cushion cover, a frontispiece for a Bag, an eye-catching table runner, or simply framed to make a unique wall-hanging. The final rows are finished off in such a way that the square can easily be upsized.
