If you’ve been following along lately, you might have noticed two things.

1. It’s still very much summer.

2. I’m working on a Christmas afghan.

The thing is, I have done the start-a-Christmas-project in mid-December thing before and it has never gone will for me. So this year, I’m working on these blocks way ahead of time so that I (and hopefully some of you!) will have plenty of time to finish this afghan and enjoy it during the actual Christmas season.

I was in the same boat three weeks ago, but this video by The Crochet Crowd and these resources from 1 Dog Woof have been really helpful while I’ve been learning the c2c technique.

The two free graph patterns I’ve shared so far have included a modern Rudolph the reindeer and a monochromatic bulb ornament.

This free pattern for a corner to corner crochet reindeer graph is perfect as part of a Christmas afghan, but also works on its own as a festive pillow square.

This monochromatic bulb ornament would work great as a festive pillow front too! Click to download the other free graphs for this festive, modern afghan! My idea with this Christmas graphgan is to keep the illustration style minimalist so that the resulting throw feels contemporary and appropriate in anyone’s home, regardless of your decorating style.

For the others, I have been drawing lines across my graph to make sure I was following the rows appropriately, but I found this one much more intuitive to just crochet and reference the chart periodically as I went.

Click to download all the free graphgan patterns.The effort that you save in chart-reading for this one though will unfortunately go to weaving in the ends. My three-year-old said she likes this square best because touching it “feels like hair.” So, if you’ve ever aspired to have hairy crochet, this project will deliver.

If you’re not ready to crochet an entire holiday afghan, you could use any of these Christmas C2C squares to make a pillow front and then make the same sized square for the back in a solid color. Then it’s super easy to sew the squares together like I did in this pillow pattern. This square pattern is about 15×15″, so a 14×14″ pillow form would work perfectly.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I’m using half double crochet stitches for my C2C squares instead of the usual double crochet stitches, so 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. (Each square should end up about 15×15″ when you use half double crochets.)

      Yay, Bethany! This afghan is my first C2C project too. I am having so much fun with it. I’d love to hear what you think. And let me know if you figure out any good tips or tricks as you go. If you check out the first post in this afghan series, I linked to the videos that I found most helpful as I was teaching myself this technique.

      Happy crocheting!

    OH how I remember you and your sisters staying up on Christmas Eve trying to finish each other’s presents! Each of you promising not to look at what the other was making? I am so glad you finally figured out that it is much easier to start Christmas in July! Maybe some day your mother will learn too??

      Thanks, John! I’m happy to have you here too! This afghan is my first c2c project and I’m having so much fun with it. It’s just so cool to see the illustration materialize before your eyes in yarn form. If you want to design your own graphs, you should def check out StitchFiddle.com. It’s what I’ve been using to make all my c2c patterns. And it’s free!

      Happy crocheting!

    I just found your Christmas c2c graphs, they are wonderful, beautiful, and you have them for free! OMG thank you so much. I know this is a lot of work designing the blocks, and it takes up a lot of your time, and that is so special. I’m going to enjoy catching up and making a beautiful Christmas afghan for this year. I’m going to follow you so I don’t miss anything else.
    Thanks, again ever so much,
    Lisa in Alabama

      Hey! Welcome, Lisa! They ARE a lot of work! But I’ve also really fallen in love with c2c. I feel like a kid again drawing pictures when I’m designing these.

      I’d love to see your completed afghan! I think this is the perfect time of year to start one.

      Happy crocheting!

      Jess
