Free pattern: Raised Bunchberry Square (Mystery Lapghan CAL)

Raised Bunchberry Square, free #crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground CrafterThis square is my second contribution to the Mystery Lapghan Crochet-a-long, a  crochet event featuring thirty-six 6″ (15 cm) squares by thirty crochet designers.

Mystery Lapghan Crochet-a-long featuring 29 #crochet designers and 36 free patterns for 6" (15 cm) squares. Join the Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/488215101349495/You can read more about the CAL here, or join the Facebook group to chat with participating crocheters. You can find my first pattern for this CAL, the Diagonal Box Stitch Square, here.

I wanted each of my square designs for this crochet-a-long to be a little different. Since the last one was crocheted in rows, this one is crocheted in rounds. The last one used two colors, so this one uses three colors. The last one was easy, and this one is a bit more… interesting.

You see, the Raised Bunchberry Square is dimensional.

I also asked three fellow designers to check out the pattern. They used some great colors in their versions!
