Emerald Asscher Crochet Afghan Square Free Pattern

Emerald Asscher Crochet Afghan Square Pattern by Crochet For You.

This pattern is a part of You’ve Got Options Crochet Along. Click here to see more details and win the prizes. At the end of this #OptionsCAL you will have 12 squares and you have two options to create these squares.

It means this pattern available in two sizes, that’s my favorite part of this CAL and it was a bit challenge to me because this is my first Afghan square design I’m sharing with you. I hope you will love it.

I think this pattern looks more beautiful with a bobble drops texture I used. See how this bobble drops are used in other projects.

This Emerald Asscher Afghan Square looks good in two colors but you can work in one color, too (scroll down to see the solid one I made) I used Red Heart Soft in two colors and  Deborah Norville Everyday Soft Worsted in Cream for solid colored square.

The name “Emerald Asscher” I selected from your suggestions on my Facebook page. I think the name perfectly match to this square pattern.
