This easy square can be a nice coaster or an element of a bigger project. It’s easy to make and very versatile, so that you can modify it to your needs. Puff stitch gives it a bit of texture, and the edging of different height stitches is a perfect way to hone your skills. Whether you choose many colors to make this design, or go for just one, you will end up with nice and interesting design. Make a tile blanket out of them or a set of coasters. This may be a great gift idea! For more sturdy structure, use cotton yarn, which is much less squishy than cotton-acrylic blend.

This project is available on Crochetpedia and Ravelry.

The square is approximately 10 x 10 cm (3,85″ x 3,85″), but the final size depends greatly on the kind of yarn you use and your style of crocheting. The finished piece may require blocking, which will give it desired regular shape and size.
