Danyel Pink recently closed her crochet website (Danyel Pink Designs) and retired from the world of crochet. Oombawka Design purchased the full rights to this pattern, which means now I can share it with you.

I’m happy to be able to include this Winter Bloom Afghan Square pattern with my other free patterns on the Oombawka Design Crochet blog.

If you, or someone you know, is retiring and closing their crochet blog, please feel free to reach out to arrange for your patterns to be included at Oombawka Design too!
