This round-up of crochet afghan patterns is compiled by Rhelena of Crochet Pattern Bonanza – a free crochet pattern directory. Rhelena was kind enough to write this up as a guest post for me to share with you. Thanks Rhelena!
Afghan squares are a fun way to relax at the end of the day. They are often mindless to crochet, and you can use up your yarn scraps to make many of them.
Another beauty of afghan squares is that you can use them in many other projects besides afghans. You can easily incorporate them into bags, small mats and even table doilies if you like. So I hope that you will enjoy this small collection of crochet afghan squares.
