Happy last post of September friends! And because it’s the last pattern of the month, you know what that means – a new C2C square. But it’s not just any square, it’s on celebrating that we are officially in Fall now so I hope you like the Caramel Apple Afghan Square.
When I started planning this blanket I knew that I wanted to make a pumpkin pie square but I wasn’t sure when I would release it. I love pumpkin pie, actually pie in general is my favorite Fall dessert, but I didn’t want to celebrate Fall and pumpkin season with a pumpkin pie immediately. Does that make sense? I wanted a Fall dessert/snack food that captured the spirit but wasn’t pumpkin just yet. Of course I turned to apples because my favorite pie is apple pie (don’t tell pumpkin pie).
Honestly I haven’t had a proper caramel apple in so long. I prefer to dip my apples in to caramel when I eat them like that, as it’s easier. And that would have made for a rather boring square don’t you think? Some slices of apples and a little container of caramel… I don’t even know if people would have understood what they were looking at. So instead I wanted to get a bright red apple and contrast it with some yummy caramel color (the yarn color is called honey though, but it’s close enough). And then this way you can change up colors for a different idea, make it a chocolate dipped apple, add “nuts” in the form of bits of fringe, or even make it wacky colors and call it a candy apple. It’s totally up to you. And this one is only 4 colors, so it’s a quick make 😀
I hope you like this week’s new apple square. It’s got a lot of room for fun and delicousness. And next month? It’s gonna be candy corn, because of course! It’s October, which is my favorite month of the year (also my birthday month).
I hope you like this year’s theme and join in using the hashtag #DeliciousDessertsC2CCAL and #DivineDebris so I can share your makes!
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 the C2C Caramel Apple Afghan Square, 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.
