Basic Roselet

Basic Roselet
Designed by Dusti Rose Hendricks
Sheep Of Delight Crochet
Somehow, I ended up with an extraordinary amount of pink yarn in my yarn stash.  This Basic Roselet helps cut that down.  Use it as a stand-alone project or as an embellishment for shawls or curtains.
Skill Level-Easy

Finished Measurements- 1 ½ ” tall x 2 ¼ ”wide

                 Yarn or tapestry needle
