Crochet alphabet ABC squares can be made easily with single crochet stitches and cross stitch. Or if you would like bigger squares, try using these graphs for a C2C crochet project. Keep reading for the free crochet pattern.
Crochet Alphabet Squares with Many Uses
These crochet alphabet abc squares are the first in a set for a complete crochet alphabet. I used these graphs to make squares for plush blocks. You could also use these squares for pillows, blankets and more.
Cross Stitch on Crochet
My crochet blocks use a combination of SC stitches and cross stitching on top of crochet. You could also use only SC stitches working the color changes as you go, or convert it to a C2C project.
While planning this project, I ended up working these grids in 3 different ways and got the following dimensions using an H-hook:
- Double-crochet C2C (see my owl graph here): 26" x 26"
- Single-crochet 2 sts x 2 sts per pixel: 14" x 16"
- Single-crochet 1 st x 1 st per pixel (with cross stitch on top-pictured): 9" x 9"
