Triangle Trellis Square-A Free 12 Inch Afghan Square Pattern

Sometimes it is nice to not have to work a square from the center, and as a designer, I’m not going to lie that it can get downright complicated to get a circle to turn into a square as you work it. Sometimes less hassle is better.

The Triangle Trellis Square is a 12 inch afghan square worked in rows. The lacy triangle shaped stitches give this simple to make square a touch of elegance.
