Introduction

I've been asked about this pattern, so I'm going to try to post the instructions here.

It's a very simply square.

Materials List

I used acrilic wool in the color mustard

hook nr 3

Finished Size

about 16 cm (6.299")

Gauge

4 cm (1.575") for the first row

Notes

Well, forgive me for the poor explanation of the pattern...

If it's not to bad, I'll try to post the square Cruz de Encaje pattern :D

I think I made some mistakes along the text. It is hard to write patterns like this in my language, imagine in a foreign one.

But please, if you try this pattern, tell me about my text...
