Snow is falling and the sky is gray, but that doesn’t mean you should be gloomy! Embrace the season with the best Christmas crochet squares. Start with basic red and green squares to get your creative juices flowing. Then you can move onto patterns with holiday imagery, like the Ho Ho Ho Square. Kids love being able to look at all the different squares you make, and each of these free patterns will inspire holiday spirit.
