Calypso Crab Granny Square Free Pattern
by Elizabeth Mareno 2018
Welcome to the Calypso Crab Granny Square Pattern. This pattern was created as another way to incorporate the Calypso Crab stitch that I created for the Mermaid CAL blankets, Kiss the Girl and Under the Sea, for my Spring 2018 CAL. The Calypso Crab stitch was created to represent Sebastian the crab, who was one of my favorite characters from Disney's 1989 Little Mermaid movie. You can also find this stitch in my Calypso Crab Beach Bag pattern available here.
Without further ado, here is your materials list and all you will need to create this free pattern. You can also purchase a PDF version in my ETSY store if you would rather not worry about having to come back to your device to work on the pattern.
