I am creating a 9-square corner-to-corner (C2C) blanket just like my Christmas Character Afghan but smaller. The squares are 15×15 pixels (where as my Christmas characters were 25×25) and each one has a different emoji face on it! And because of the consistent colors, smaller size, and less color changes, the pieces work up faster. It took me about 1.5 hours to make one square. If you aren’t up for creating an entire blanket, you can use the squares individually! They would make a cute pillow cover or even a small lovey blanket!

If you are new to the C2C technique you can find several tutorials on how to begin. The Crochet Crowd has a great video tutorial that you can watch HERE. You can also refer to the videos and picture tutorials in my Baby Sheep C2C or my Owl C2C for more instruction.

Materials:
– Size G Crochet Hook
– Worsted Weight Yarn in Yellow, Red, Brown, White, Pink, Black and Blue. I am using Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Mustard, Scarlett, Chocolate, Pink, White, Black and Aqua (for all squares). You only need about 1 skein for each piece… I think I was able to get two squares out of  1.5 skeins of white and yellow. Obviously the smaller features use less yarn.
– Tapestry needle

Finished Square is approx 12 x 12 inches.

NOTE: I made a last minute decision to leave off the orange and only use yellow. I am leaving the graphs with the orange border just in case you decide you want to crochet yours like that. If you are up for the extra color change I think the emoji’s will look great with the orange! Or you can leave the orange squaresyellow as I did.

Have you found that sometimes your squares don’t connect? This is normal! For example lets look at the smile in this particular emoji. You see the brown squares are connected on one side of the smile, but disconnected on the other. The squares that are connected were crocheted all in one diagonal row, whereas the squares that are disconnected were in separate rows and were actually separated by rows of yellow in-between. This is just the nature of the C2C graph.

Don’t worry, you can fix this!

When it’s time to weave in your ends, stitch your yarn between the two corners about 3 times to created a connection.

Voila! No more awkward space!

    I love your patterns. I have not been able to crochet in over a month. I cut the nerve and tendon in my thumb Christmas morning. I can not wait till they give me the ok to start using my thumb again… I think that some of your patterns would be great therapy for my hand.

    I’m new to c2c and I’m confused by what you mean in the increase and decrease instructions. What does the W and Y mean? I’ve tried to look it up but I haven’t been able to figure it out. Thank you for your help.
    Also, would you consider making a video for one of the squares for people to follow along with?

    • Deanna says

      To find really good video tutorials on how to do the increase and decrease in c2c, YouTube is a good place to look. That’s how I learned. And the W and Y mean to use either white or yellow yarn. Best wishes! :-)

    • Mallarie says

      W means “white” and Y means “yellow”. The written instructions just tell you how many of each color squares to make. Check out TheCrochetCrowd’s c2c tutorial videos for awesome explanations of the stitch :)

    I love this pattern, but I’m having trouble with making the part of smiley face square, like the part that troubles me the most is the pink part, I’ll do the first one then turn my work and it say’s to do it again but it doesn’t line up with the first one I did. it would really help if you give a video on how to read and follow the pattern.
