The Pixie Dust Square crochet pattern works up quickly. The square is part of the You’ve Got Options Crochet Along! Make several of this square to make a blanket or use it for other projects. As some of you may already know I enjoy making gorgeous squares and sewing them into blankets and other crochet items. So why not kick this year off right by making some more squares. I think it is becoming a yearly tradition. What do you think?  I am offering the Pixie Dust Square as a free crochet pattern for you. You will also be able to get the ad free PDF for free today only. You can find more of my square crochet patterns HERE. Enjoy!

There is just something about watching the blanket grow that puts a smile on my face and makes me excited. Knowing that it was my talent, hard work and dedication that brought the blanket to life makes me proud.

The Yarn

For this project I chose to use Red Heart With Love Metallic. This yarn is a worsted weight medium #4 yarn. It is your typical #4 yarn with a little sparkle to it. It is one of the things I like most about it. I enjoy working with Red Heart With Love and I LOVE to add sparkle to my projects.
