If you like to crochet, you will enjoy making crocheted squares or blocks using the free patterns below. You can turn these crocheted squares into afghans, purses, pillows, and hip and stylish clothing. The nice thing about these patterns is that they are all for squares that measure 12 inches by 12 inches. You could make a funky afghan using a variety of different squares, and since the squares are all the same size, they will fit into your patchwork afghan design nicely.

Crochet Pattern for 12 Inch Square #8 - Unholey Granny Square:  This is a nice twist on the granny square. The square is worked in the round like a granny square but it's solid and not lacy. It really shows the colors of the design better than a granny square and would also be a nice design for a simple purse or a pillow since it does not need to be lined.

Don't be afraid to alter these patterns to suit your needs. Play with color combinations. Try using unusual fibers to crochet your squares (cord, ribbon, fabric strips, etc.). There are no rules in crochet. Just have fun and let your imagination run wild!
