In this blog post you'll find a free crochet pattern for the classic bun called semla or fastlagsbulle. It's a bun filled with wipped cream and almond paste or jam. Traditionally you eat them in February before the fasting begins. Have you tried it? They are delicious!

- Weave in the remaining yarn ends.
