Sofia Square · Free Crochet Pattern

Want to crochet a square or rectangle in ANY size? You can do just that with the Sofia Square, which features a beautiful yet simple stitch. Read on to get the free PDF pattern! (Scroll down to the sign-up form to get your copy!)


Pattern ideas

This easy, versatile, and multipurpose pattern allows you to crochet ANY size square or rectangle. Thus, you can use it to create so many patterns. Here are a few ideas: 
  • Baby blanket
  • Adult blanket 
  • Cup coaster or mug rug
  • Facial washcloth
  • Dishcloth
  • Cushion cover
  • Potholder
  • Granny square
  • Bag, pouch, tote, purse (just stitch them together and add straps!)
  • ...and more! 

The Moss Stitch

This pattern features the beautiful yet simple moss stitch (aka “granite stitch”) worked in turned rows.  It's relaxing to crochet on repeat and produces a nicely textured result.  It's also a great stitch for showing off different yarn color changes every few rounds.  


    Any type of yarn fiber and weight can be used, along with a suitable sized crochet hook.  It'll depend greatly on what you choose as your project.  For example:
    • Cup coaster - I used a medium weight 4 yarn (Hobbii Friends Cotton 8/8) and a 5mm crochet hook.
    • Baby blanket - I used a jumbo weight 7 yarn (Hobbii Blanket Yarn) and a 20mm crochet hook. 

    If you're making a smaller project, such as a coaster or dishcloth, I recommend thinner yarns (e.g., DK or worsted yarns).  

    However, if you're making something larger and don't want to spend forever on the tiny, intricate stitches, use a super bulky or jumbo weight yarn.
