Yarn used is Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in Linen, Scarlet and Raspberry. Yes, I know. It’s still not snowing. Probably not even close. Yet I’m crocheting snowflakes.

But I’m bound and determined to have this Christmas sampler afghan completed by Thanksgiving at 6pm and not a second later. 🙂 Plus, if you’d like to make any or all of these graphgan patterns, I want you to have ample time too.

I love how modern and graphic it turned out and it would make such a cool throw pillow for the entire winter season.

Or wouldn’t it look awesome with a wintery plaid backing? This square is about 15×15″, so a 14×14″ pillow form would work great.)

It was interesting to see this snowflake take shape because it really highlighted the way that corner to corner crochet comes together. Since some of the red sections followed the “bias” of the crochet and some went against it, the two small prongs of each red snowflake “arm” looked different. See what I mean below?

Yarn used is Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in Linen, Scarlet and Raspberry. I didn’t love how that looked, so then I tore out the topstitching and redid it with the linen-colored yarn. I like how that turned out much better. It helps the little tips of the snowflake “arm” look like they’re floating. I think it adds a more delicate look to the pattern too.

How to finish corner to corner (c2c) crochet patterns. To do this yourself, just use a tapestry needle to sew a few stitches on top of the red “connector” threads between the red boxes that are blurring together. I just transferred my yarn around the entire block by weaving it in the back of the boxes to get around to the next snowflake “arm.”

Now if you’ve never tried a corner to corner crochet pattern before–never fear! This Christmas afghan 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.

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.

      Hey Leila,

      I’ve been trying to publish one per week, usually on Saturday or Sunday. So square 7 will be up this weekend! 🙂

    OK, so I have never crocheted c2c before with different colors. This might be a dumb question, but what are the actual instructions for crocheting this snowflake design? Do you keep all colors going as you crochet or do you cut the colors each time?

      Hey Lisa,

      It’s not a dumb question at all. 1DogWoof has some helpful instructions to learn the basics of c2c color changes. Essentially, it sort of depends how long you’ll be “carrying” your yarn under the other colors. I try to hide it underneath whenever possible so I don’t have as many ends to weave in. And if you do snip it, be sure to just crochet over it with your next several stitches so that you might not have to weave it in at all. Hope that helps!

      Jess

    What does the back of a c2c look like? Thanks!

      Hey Bess,
      In theory, it should look like a mirror image of the front. Since I was still learning how to carry my yarn and transition colors on this project, the back of mine is a little messier. 🙂 I still love it though!

    Hi Jess,
    I am trying this for my first ever c2c graphghan as well. What I was wondering is do you have written instructions to go along with these graphs? I also wanted you to know that the CrochetCrowd videos were very helpful! Thank you for linking them!

      Congrats on trying c2c! It’s so fun, isn’t it? I don’t actually have written instructions at this time, but I hope to eventually.

      If you really get into the c2c thing, you should definitely check out StitchFiddle.com. It’s a free tool to design graphs. That’s where I designed these!

    Is there a baby wolf (wolf pup) c2c available, or can one be made. I have someone who wants a wolf pup c2c afghan for her new baby.

      I might search Etsy to see if someone is selling a wolf pup pattern. Or you can take a stab at designing your own at StitchFiddle.com. I’m sorry that I don’t currently have a wolf pup pattern! 🙂
