Welcome to the 2020 Fiber Flux Spring Crochet Along…yippee! Today marks week one of the CAL and we’ll be learning about the beautiful project we’ll be making…the Comforts of Home Wrap! This very easy and gorgeous little project is an asymmetrical wrap that can be worn lots of different ways and is a one cake project!
