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 https://www.thecraftyco.com/category/downloads/
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:
