This Crochet Present (Gift Box) Corner-to-Corner Crochet Square is the second square in my Celebration C2C Blanket! I love this one because it can be used for so many occasions… especially Christmas! Change the colors to red and green and it’s perfect for holiday gift giving! You could even use this one square for the front of a pillow!
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 my present square after it is crocheted is approximately 16×16 inches. I have not added a border to it.
No better time to start a big project than now! Celebrate your loved ones! Create this blanket with as many (or as little) squares as you’d like!
