The Yarn That Is Perfect for This Crochet Square

To make this simple square you will need three different colors of worsted weight yarn, a size H crochet hook and some free time. I ended up using some leftover skeins of Red Heart Soft which was perfect since this square doesn’t use much yarn!

If you don’t have any Red Heart Soft then Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice or Caron Simply Soft would be great substitutes. The best thing about this project is that it is a great scrap buster project and a quick one at that! (My favorite!) 🙂
