C2C Christmas Bulb Ornament
This C2C crochet Christmas pattern is the second in my free holiday afghan series.
This monochromatic bulb ornament would work great as a festive pillow front too!

IMPORTANT NOTE: I’m using half double crochet stitches for my C2C squares instead of the usual double crochet stitches, so when I’m adding a box or square at the beginning of a new row, I’m chaining 5 instead of the usual 6 chains.
Then I work my first hdc of that box into the third chain from the hook. At the beginning of each box (after the slip stitch), I use 2 chains instead of the usual 3 you’d use with a double crochet C2C project. This has allowed me to maintain a lot of visual detail in the graphs, yet hopefully end up with an afghan that’s not too massive to snuggle under on the couch.
(Each square should end up about 15×15″ when you use half double crochets.)
