Free pattern: Raised Bunchberry Square – 12″ (30.5 cm) version

Raised Bunchberry Square - 12 inch (30.5 cm) version, free crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground CrafterI had so much fun with the 6″ (15 cm) version of the Raised Bunchberry Square pattern that I shared last week that I decided to upsize it to a 12″ (30.5 cm) version! This is Square 23 in the 2015 American Crochet Afghan Crochet-Along.
