About the Savanna Square

For this project, I used worsted weight yarn and a corded 8 mm crochet hook. If you’re like me and love texture filled makes then this Tunisian crochet square is perfect for you!. Apart from customizing the square with your chosen colours, you can also make whatever size toy you wish by adjusting the yarn weight and hook size.
