Sweet and Simple Afghan Square Pattern

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission. Here’s how it works.

The Sweet and Simple Afghan Square Pattern is easy-to-crochet, both textured and a little bit lacy and a perfect match for the mini skeins included in the Scheepjes Stone Washed Colour Pack!

I adore my Scheepjes Stone Washed (River Washed) Colour Pack and I have been working through it steadily over the last few months.

This is just one of the patterns I have come up with to make use of the beautiful yarn.

The 5 Petal Flower Afghan Square Pattern (a 6 inch square) that I released a few weeks ago for #grannysquareday2019 also uses this yarn.

I love the wide range of colors (50!) that are included in each pack – they really are visually inspiring and beautiful to crochet with.

This week I am releasing my Sweet and Simple Afghan Square Pattern and next week I will share my Pretty Posies Afghan Square Pattern.
