Musical Notes Free Crochet Pattern


Dear Friends,

The last few weeks have been tough, as like many others I stayed at home due to the COVID-19 situation and spent my days worrying about my family and friends back in Italy. Fortunately everybody’s safe, and can't wait to be able to visit and be close to them again.


Hard times call for awesome music...and since I can't sing or play any instruments I thought I would send you some music vibes through these fun musical notes!


These colorful and cheerful notes can be used as rattle toys or mobile attachments!


Play with yarn and colors and make your very own notes set!!
