Coral and Stone Square… Free Crochet Pattern!

Coral and Stone Square… Free Crochet Pattern!

Coral and Stone Square

The Coral and Stone Square is a fun and whimsical project that can be used to make fun afghans, pillows or a creative tote bag!!!  The pattern is easy and quick using several textual crochet stitches… Best of all it is another free crochet pattern!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I loved designing  this lovely square and can’t wait to whip up several to join into a bright and fun afghan!!  Each square measures 12″ x 12″, but you can adjust the size by stopping at any point to make it smaller or adding additional double crochet and single crochet rounds to make it larger!

If you love this free pattern… Add it to your Ravelry queue and favorites for easy access!!  Click Here…

Materials:

Yarn – 50 yards each worsted weight yarn.  You can use 1-16 colors to make this your own.  I used the following:

Red Heart  with Love – Papaya(Color A), White(Color B) and Pewter(Color C)

 

Hook – Size J, I love the Clover Soft Touch Hooks!!

The only other item you will need is a pair of scissors…
