How to C2C Poinsettia square

Here at The Crafty Co we love designing C2C squares.

We can’t think of a better way to spend a rainy afternoon, sitting in the warm, working on a C2C  square. We have recently found a wonderful blogger, who has created the most stunning Christmas Afghan. You can find her here

We too have some gorgeous designs that you can find for free here
One of the most vivid memories at Christmas, is seeing a Poinsettia sitting on my nan’s table.
This is such a beautiful flower and a lovely reminder of the festive season.
We were asked to design a Poinsettia and this was our inspiration for creating the square below.


 Here’s how to C2C a poinsettia chart

Please note: Instead of the traditional C2C method of using UK Term Trebles and chain 3’s to make each pixel,  a 2 chain and UK  HTR’s (Half Trebles) were worked.

A 5 chain was worked on the increase stitch instead of 6.

This made the stitches on the afghan square smaller, with the overall square measuring approximately 15×15 inches.

The graph is below and the row numbers are located at the start of each row so you know which way the rows are worked:

Written Rows

When working with any C2C graph a top tip is to sew your ends in every few rows.

We would love to see your pictures of my Pointsettia square. And, if you need help, please message us:
