The final corner to corner Christmas crochet pattern in this nine square series is a modern, monochromatic holiday wreath. Crochet all the squares for a festive Christmas afghan or choose your favorites to make throw pillows!
Guys. I can’t tell you how many ambitious projects I’ve started and not finished in my lifetime. THIS AFGHAN AIN’T GOING ON THAT LIST!
This weekend, I finished the ninth and final square of my modern Christmas afghan and I have to admit, I felt pretty accomplished when I snipped the final strands of yarn.
Yes, I know. There’s still a decent amount of work to be done sewing these C2C squares together, but for now, I’m just going to bask in the glory of finishing this wreath pattern.
I’ve started to think about how I should unify all the squares and finish off the afghan. I’d love your ideas. Would you add a colored boarder? Borders between the squares? Other little “accents” to the top and bottom to make into more of a rectangle? Please share your opinions in the comments!
Now if you’ve never crocheted a corner to corner pattern before–you can still make this afghan. This crochet graphgan is actually my first c2c project too. I watched this video by The Crochet Crowd as well as checked out all of 1 Dog Woof’s extensive corner to corner crochet resources to learn enough to get started.
One thing that might be helpful to keep in mind while crocheting this wreath pattern: Because the wreath stripes are only each one row wide, you’ll starting alternating rows with each shade of green. For this reason, I carried the strand of green that wasn’t in use the entire time so that I wouldn’t have to snip it and start it on the other end of the block the next time I needed it. Fewer ends to weave in = more actual crocheting time!
IMPORTANT NOTE: I’m using half double crochet stitches for my C2C squares instead of the usual double crochet stitches. When I’m adding a box or square at the beginning of a new row, I’m chaining 5 instead of the usual 6 chains. Then I work my first hdc of that box into the third chain from the hook. At the beginning of each box (after the slip stitch), I use 2 chains instead of the usual 3 you’d use with a double crochet C2C project. This has allowed me to maintain a lot of visual detail in the graphs, yet hopefully end up with an afghan that’s not too massive to snuggle under on the couch.
