Basic Crochet Square

This easy crochet pattern is just about as dainty and lovely as you can find. Although this is a Basic Crochet Square, it is fun to crochet and will help beginners develop new skills. Being able to create such a pretty little square out of a ball of yarn is a satisfying feeling. After you complete this, you'll be fired up and ready to take on even more beginner crochet patterns. Make something with your own two hands that is soft to the touch and lovely to look at.
