Pictured above: a crocheted square worked in Caron's Simply Soft acrylic yarn. I used the colors Autumn Maize, Dark Sage and Autumn Red. You can click here to get the free crochet chart and pattern.

This design is really versatile, and is well-suited for use in many different projects. I've made it several times now.

I used some of these afghan squares as part of a Christmas afghan; you can too, if you print out the free crochet pattern and chart for the matching Christmas tree square. Feel free to select other designs to go along with this one; you have plenty of other choices for coordinating designs in the mix and match series of afghan squares.

I also used this design to crochet a matching Christmas pillow.
