Moogly CAL 2022 || Marly Bird Crochet Mosaic Block

If you haven’t been following along with the MooglyCAL2022, then you’ve been missing out. Just like last year’s project, dozens of designers have come together to create crochet blocks throughout the year. Moogly shares all of the blocks on her site. By working on them, we all learn new crochet stitches, techniques, and approaches to creating a square. Ultimately, in the end, you have the beautiful Moogly CAL 2022 crochet blanket. As you know, I love to collaborate and be a part of the community in as many ways as I can. Therefore, I’m thrilled to share my Marly Bird Crochet Mosaic Block with you today!
