Tears of Joy Emoji is the third square in my C2C Crochet Emoji Graphgan!
If you missed square #1 you can find it here:
And square #2 here:
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.
– 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.

Continue to SC around the edge. I alternated between 2 SC and 3 SC stitch per each pixel square along the edge and a SC + chain 2 + SC in the corners.
The best part about these emoji’s is that most of them look the same when reversed so you can choose whichever side looks better when you are done crocheting to be your front of the blanket!
You excited for this series?! I am! Stay tuned for square #4!
