Bubble Square – Free Crochet Pattern

Granny Square Day 2020 is here! Started in 2014 by @suregal, we have all been celebrates our love for granny squares by posting as many squares as we can. You can view all those lovely squares using #grannysquareday2020. To celebrate Granny Square Day 2020 I have designed a free square for you. This square has loads of texture, which I love, and is only 6 rounds, so a quick make. I have named the design Bubble Square, because the bobbles remind me of bubbles. In this post you find the free pattern for Bubble Square and everything you need to make this square.
