Crochet Apron -- Snow White (inspired)...Toddlers/Kids FREE Pattern






Size:  2T - 5

--5 mm crochet hook for the apron
--4 mm crochet hook for the bow and apple applique
--Worsted Weight #4 yarn in yellow, blue, red and white and a very minimal amount of green (for apple leaf) and brown (for apple stem)
