The world of Colorful Crochet Afghan Squares is full of amazing ideas, and talented designers are still coming up with new ones! Squares are one of the ways to create amazing afghans, blankets and bedspreads. By working on relatively small chunks of bigger pattern, you can quite painlessly create a very big project. A lot of such projects are presented as crochet-a-longs, where you can follow instructions step by step. Before grabbing your crochet hook, you should decide on the project of your choice and choose the color palette. Plan it out specifically or try out a couple of combinations before you start – this will save you a lot of time and there won’t be the need for frogging on the way. Squares can be simple or intricate, flat or structural. All you need to do when you are done with squares is to arrange them as you like and join them together. You can add a decorative border at the end, too! It’s a lovely finishing touch that takes a crochet blanket to the next level. Take a look at our selection of The Best of Crochet Baby Blankets.

    I have a question. I am a left hand crocheter that had to teach myself. I read the pattern and just do it with my left hand. Any suggestions or comments ?
