This pretty crochet lace square is very easy to make. It has a nice open lace stitch in the middle, which makes this ideal for the summer. As for the edge, I worked it in a solid stitch to make it easier for you to add another round of single crochets or double crochets if you want to adjust the size of this lace square.
