While these love-it-or-hate-it little squares have most likely been around since the dawn of crochet (Because what else do you do with your scraps?), examples have be found as early as 1891 in publications like Butterick’s The Art of Crochet.

Every month when we put together our YarnYAY! boxes, we try to curate them with a vibe in mind. To help with our vision, our Gal Friday @bexjoiner puts together a mood board to evoke the feeling we’re going for that month. I could look at these all day long.
We’re down to our LAST FIVE June boxes. Get this vibe (by grabbing the June 📦) at www.yarnyay.com (link I’m profile)!
All one hundred of our Limited Edition Pride Boxes are officially SOLD OUT, so our little company was able donate $500 to @aclu_nationwide towards the fight for the civil or rights of the LGBTQIA# community.
Thank you so much for supporting this project! 👊🏻🌈💗
