Crochet Hugs & Kisses On The Side C2C Afghan

Raise your hand if you love C2C patterns!  Well I know that many of you do, so I just had to add one to the Hugs & Kisses collection. This is the Hugs and Kisses On the Side C2C Afghan.

Free Pattern: Crochet Hugs and Kisses C2C

This blanket crochets quickly and easy, but I have to give you fair warning.  If your finished projects must be perfect, then this is not the pattern for you.  I had intended on this being a perfect square, and truly it should be, but alas it looks more like a parallelogram.  So this sort of squareish throw is just perfect in my unperfect world.  When I lay it across my lap or wrap my precious grandbaby in it, perfection doesn’t matter.  It the cuddles and snuggles that matter the most.

I used 4 Caron Big Cakes in Summer Berry Tart and only had a small handful of yarn leftover.  Corner to corner is fun with self-striping yarn, but feel free to use yarn to match your own decor.

When you upload your project to The Crochet Crowd Stitch Social Group or Instagram, feel free to tag me so I can see what you have crocheted.  Follow me on Instagram @ jeannestein or on Facebook.  My designs can also be saved in your Ravelry favorites by following me HERE.
