Last Coffee Afghan Square and last post of the year! I can’t believe it’s here, it’s been a whole year coming. I hope you’re ready for the C2C Christmas Cup Afghan Square, the 12th and last square. Finishing 2020 in style don’t you think?
So this month’s square is unsurprisingly a Christmas themed one. I originally didn’t know what I wanted to make this month but after making and deleting a couple designs I found one I like and am happy with for a final square. I even added a nice little pom pom to this square, taking my blanket up a notch.
And if you’re readying along on Instagram you might already know I’ve been hard at work thinking about what I want 2021’s CAL to be. I’m leaning hard on plants but I haven’t fully decided. What do you think? Let me know in the comments what you think will be a fun idea.
And I hope you’ve been enjoying this CAL and will share your photos on social media, just make sure you tag me so I can see them! I love seeing the squares.
I hope you all are healthy and happy and like this new design. Please be kind to one and other, wear your masks, wash your hands, and be safe friends!
Please note: I was provided the yarn for this pattern by Lion Brand Yarn for the purposes of making this design, without compensation. I wasn’t provided the yarn with the expectations of positive or negative reviews but I did enjoy using this yarn, I’ve used it many times and it’s always a great worsted acrylic yarn.

So I’ve started joining this blanket with a simple ch/sc join – you can check it out here. It’s not a perfect join, so I will be making a post about what I’ve done to adjust it for this blanket in December. 🙂
Don’t forget, you can buy an ad-free pdf of the written instructions for this pattern in my Ravelry shop or in my LoveCrafts shop (coming soon).
