A. Crochet Granny Squares (for Xmas)

She has so many crocheted Christmas patterns on her blog and the Christmas Gnome solid granny square is no exception.

The textured snowflake square pattern is free on the blog, just scroll down to get to it. I love how the designer used a classic design and added her own uniqueness. This can easily be made into a trivet or washcloth (in cotton) too.
- Festive Tapestry Crochet Square by Bluestar Crochet (featured image – top right)
This pattern is part of a CAL (Crochet-a-long) to make a pillow. Nobody said you could not use this great pattern (or all the CAL squares) for a fun project! That is the beauty of square patterns, use any free pattern and use it in different ways.
The free tapestry square pattern is all single crochet stitches with a pattern in a contrasting yarn.
Joanita used a solid granny square in the middle, added triangles in a contrasting color, a border, and the Reindeer detail. This is a totally different approach to designing a square, yet so effective. Sometimes, you have to think (and create outside the box).
C. C2C (Corner to Corner) Christmas Squares for festive crochet projects
Sometimes people refer to this type of crocheting as pixel crochet (as a reference to the pixelled pattern created for the pattern).
It would be a disservice not to include corner-to-corner squares in this selection. Have a look at these beautiful patterns:
