While trying to piece some of my crochet squares together.. I found myself wanting a piece that was 9 inches wide and 3 inches tall. So I decided to make 3 more three inch squares.
I didn't have a chance to look for a pattern. My daughter was begging me to lay with her while she fell asleep. I quickly freehanded these up and memorized the pattern well enough to share with everyone!
These little squares will make a great addition to piece together a blanket with 6 and 12 inch squares.
If the weather is on my side, I will go add them to the tree today. 🙂 Enjoy my latest free crochet pattern!
