Fireworks – C2C Crochet Pattern {Free}

As we get ready to kick off 2023, I decided to come up with a way to celebrate by making some fireworks into a c2c crochet pattern!

It is the first square in the Holiday Celebrations Blanket, which will be 12 monthly squares that will each celebrate one of the 12 months. Some will be holiday squares, some will celebrate other things that month is known for. Be on the lookout for the bundle coming very soon!

HOLIDAY CELEBRATIONS BLANKET


The Holiday Celebrations Blanket will be 12 months of patterns – one releasing each month.

You will have the option to purchase the bundle at a discount so you can make them at your own pace and not have to worry about coming back each month for the new pattern of the month.


Why holiday squares?

My 14 (almost 15) year old daughter wanted to crochet one of my c2c squares for me which led into an entire conversation with her asking if she made a bunch of squares for me and made them into a blanket could she keep it. Why, yes you can!

So we talked for a while and came up with a plan for a whole blanket circling around the holidays and what we celebrate each month.

She’s still working on the January square but I promise to update with pictures as soon as she’s finished.

I’m so excited!

So, let’s kick off the new year with some fireworks! Choose your own colors or work it in the colors we used.
