Here is the last square of the Celebration C2C Blanket! It’s a 3 tier cake with lots of flavor options for the frosting. I’m not going to leave you guys hanging. I will have a follow up post with how to join the squares and add a border. I am also working on a Happy Birthday Banner for the top and bottom of the blanket. Similar to what I did for my Christmas Character Afghan.
I used the C2C (corner-to-corner) technique to crochet each square. Follow THIS VIDEO DEMONSTRATION by The Crochet Crowd for more explanation on how to crochet C2C afghans. I used a size H crochet hook and worsted weight yarn . Specifically Bernat Super Value. Each square takes less than a skein. I do not currently have a count on how many skeins for the entire blanket.
VERY IMPORTANT: Instead of the traditional C2C method of using DC’s and chain 3’s to make each pixel, I used HDC’s and only chained 2 (and chained 5 instead 6 on the increase stitches). I like the way the overall stitches look tighter and neater. You can absolutely use the traditional method! Keep in mind that it will take a little bit more yarn and your overall project will be larger (which isn’t a bad thing!)

Each pixel graph is 24×24 squares. The finished size of each square after it is crocheted is approximately16×16 inches. I have not added a border to it.
