Sandy’s Dolphin Crochet Applique Pattern
Designed in honor of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy.
Some of my fellow pattern designers, as well as myself, are designing squares, beanies, appliques, etc... for anyone who is interested in contributing.
I have designed a simple dolphin applique, in honor of the victims and survivors, and it is available here for you.
