Afghan Square

Here is my Afghan square free crochet pattern, it’s been a busy week but
finally I have made this simple easy design, I love the raised stitch effect
which gives a lovely textured finish, it’s also super quick to crochet.
Make several of them and sew together to use for lots of projects, such as
cushion covers, blankets, tea cozy’s, placemats, coasters, bags etc.
