This design is part of my series of mix and match crocheted afghan squares. When crocheted with acrylic or wool yarn, it makes a fantastic afghan square; however, there are other ways you could use it. Crochet it in kitchen cotton yarn and use it to make potholders or placemats; if you choose a trendy fashion yarn, you could transform multiple squares into a cute scarf or handbag.
