3-Inch Small Ridge Afghan Square
3-Inch Small Ridge Afghan Square
In the attempt to finish my 30/30 challenge here on Hubpages, I have decided to publish one of my crochet patterns.
Earlier in the year, I signed up for a 365 day granny challenge, which you can read more about here. As a result of that challenge, I have designed a small group of some 3” afghan squares.
In this hub, I would like to share my 3-inch small ridge afghan square. The pattern is worked in the back loops, which then creates a small ridge at the front of the square.
The afghan square only measures 3” and is fairly easy to do. It actually looks more like a circle, but once you join it to other squares, it shapes up quite nicely.
Material: Patons Canadiana - The New Generation (A small amount of 3 colors.)
Hook Size: H/8-5.00MM
Skill Level: Easy

You can join this square simply by sewing it to another, or you can use a fancy joining stitch, such as the flat braid. I happen to like the flat braid as it adds a lacy touch to it.
Fall Flower Afghan
This is another one of my afghan square patterns. I actually took the time to make a large afghan - it was very time consuming, but I really love it. I know that they are fall colors, but I love it so much that I am still using it. It is super warm. - Fall Flower Afghan
I made this afghan square all in one color, however, in the future I think I will try making it in several colors and see how that looks. I don't think I can go wrong... - Afghan Square
