Not just for afghans, think of the possibilities with these 7 free Afghan Square patterns

Afghan squares are so very popular and for good reason. They make beautiful afghans of any size! They can be mixed and matched to create a sampler and themed afghan, or you can repeat just one square for a more traditional afghan. They can also be used to make bags, scarves, ponchos, or hats, along with many other items. I have collected 7 free crochet patterns for afghan squares to share with you tonight, so you can make your own cozy afghan!

Afghan Squares - free crochet pattern round up from Jessie At Home

Here are the names and links of each pattern.

1) Cabled Blooms by A Crocheted Simplicity
The cables in this pattern create a fun star!

2) Mayapple Flower Square by Underground Crafter
“For this granny square, I wanted to combine elements of the classic Irish rose, but I took my inspiration from the mayapple flower, which has six petals.”

3) Joyful Afghan Square by Tamara Kelly
“This pattern was designed with the 2016 Moogly Afghan Crochet Along in mind – but you don’t have to participate in the CAL to make this pattern!”

4) Maritime Overlay by The Crochet Dude
This layered square has a really neat construction and creates a fun, dimensional, look.

5) Criss cross apple sauce by Stiches ‘n’ Scraps
“The back and forth, crossed post stitches (cables) at the center of this square form a lattice like texture. There is a Jacob’s ladder / braid stitch in each corner, tucked under smaller chain spaces for a more criss-crossed look.”

6) Crossed Square by Jessie At Home
“This square may be labeled intermediate due to the post stitches, but it’s actually pretty easy! The varying stitch height creates a fun color pattern, and the post stitches give the square some texture.”

7) Whirlwind Afghan Square by Andee Graves
“This 12” Afghan block is my gift to my blog visitors in celebration of my birthday. The instructions are accompanied by photo tutorials to help you tackle this intermediate level pattern.”
