How To Make A Textured Crochet Square Pattern

To be able to crochet this square, you’ll need to know some basic stitches and have a few crocheting supplies on hand.


Yarn: This square is made with a four weight yarn (aka worsted weight yarn) called Pound of Love by Lion Brand. If you’d like to use a different weight yarn, that would work as well, but keep in mind the finished square size will not be the same.

Crochet Hook: This square was worked up with a H-5 mm crochet hook. If you choose to use a different yarn weight, follow along with the recommended crochet hook size on the label of the yarn.

Scissors: We recommend a nice pair of stork scissors, but any pair of scissors will work for cutting yarn ends when needed.

Yarn Needle: It is a good idea to use a yarn needle (aka tapestry needle) to weave in yarn ends that have been cut. Learn how to weave in yarn ends, so you get a perfect crochet square every time!

Stitch Markers: Stitch markers are a good to use to mark the first stitch of each round. This way, you’ll be able to know where it starts and keep your stitch count correct as you work in the round.

Crochet Stitches

You will need to know a few basic crochet stitches to make the square pattern as shown. First, you’ll need to know how to double crochet, single crochet as well as the chain stitch.

Learn more below about each crochet stitch used in this easy square pattern.

Double Crochet (dc)

  1. Yarn over (yo) the crochet hook, insert the crochet hook into the designated stitch.
  2. Yo the crochet hook again, draw the yarn through the stitch, so there are 3 loops on the crochet hook
  3. Yo the crochet hook again, draw through 2 loops, so there are 2 loops on the crochet hook.
  4. Yo the crochet hook, draw through the final 2 loops.

Chain Stitch (ch)

A chain stitch is a simple crochet stitch that often serves as the foundation for other crochet stitches worked into a project.

  1. Make a slip knot.
  2. Yo (yarn over)
  3. Draw a loop of yarn back through the loop on the crochet hook. You have completed your first chain stitch.
  4. Yo and draw a loop through the loop on the crochet hook for each new chain stitch.

Single Crochet (sc)

  1. Start by making a slip knot on the crochet hook.
  2. Crochet a foundation chain (aka chain stitch) of any amount
  3. Next, insert the hook into the second chain from the hook.
  4. Wrap the yarn over the hook, and pull it back through the chain. This will create a loop on the hook.
  5. Wrap the yarn over the hook again, and pull it through both loops on the hook. This completes one single crochet stitch.
