Check out Cascade Yarns Nifty Cotton if you are interested in working in worsted weight cotton yarn to crochet an avocado coaster.
Crochet avocado pillow
Would you or someone you know enjoy a crochet avocado pillow? These squares can be joined together to make larger projects, including pillows!
Check out this post to learn the flat slip stitch join, one of my favorite methods for joining crochet squares.
These 16 inch pillow inserts would work well for making a pillow out of 9 squares joined together for the front.
The back could be made of another 9 squares, or could be crocheted as one large square with some other crochet stitch pattern.
What else can I make with this pattern?
Crochet squares can be joined together to make all kinds of larger projects! You can make blankets, pillows, bags, scarves, table runners, and even sweaters! You can find additional joining methods in this post.
This little square pattern is actually a new variation on an older pattern of mine. My Peacock Feather Blanket Square was designed several years ago. This free peacock feather crochet pattern can be found here.
I also recently released an Easter egg variation of this same pattern in bright spring colors! This free Easter crochet pattern can be found here.
To make this crochet avocado blanket square, you’ll need worsted weight yarn in two shades of green and white. I used Cascade Yarns Anthem Worsted, a soft acrylic yarn that you can purchase through your local yarn shop.
You’ll also need a size K crochet hook. My favorite crochet hooks are the Streamline resin hooks from Furl’s Crochet.
Lastly, you’ll need a tapestry needle.
