Crochet lacy squares are very versatile – you can use them as dishcloths, coasters, placemats, or join them to create a king-sized afghan or bedspread. The possibilities are endless! Today I chose for you romantic and lacy ones, which feature amazing openwork.

These lovely designs can be starting points for your creations. Play with colors and yarns, because gauge is not important here; just be sure to use the same yarn if you intend to join the lacy squares together. With these crochet patterns, you will create beautiful handmade gifts for your loved ones. Search for links to free patterns under the pictures below.

If you want to make an elegant blanket out of blocks, get inspired by this work in progress by Bear and Bunny Crochet! The main part of the squares feature shades of green, but the outer edge is always white. Why? Because once all of the squares are finished and blocked, the join will be invisible and the white will create a lovely background.
