It’s a party popper! The Celebration C2C Blanket needed a little pop of confetti so I took the popular party popper emoji and made it into a pixelated C2C square. I’m not going to lie, this is going to be the most difficult square to crochet. Lots of color changes and ends to weave in. I won’t be offended if you decide to leave this one out or replace it with something else. I am also providing two slightly different pixel graphs for this one. I am working with the same color palette for all of my squares but you can use different or more appropriate party popper colors if you’d like!
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!)

Here’s another option!
Or how about a flower?
Or a party hat?
Each pixel graph is 24×24 squares. The finished size of each 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! You can also turn any of these squares into individual pillows. Lots of ways to use them!
