Hi everyone! You didn’t think we’d finish out June without another rainbow pattern from me, did you? Ha! Of course I would include another and it would be an update of my 2019 TSAP Rainbow and Coffee Tapestry Afghan Square. Say hello to June’s C2C square – the Rainbow and Coffee Cup C2C Afghan Square.
So, as I was saying before, this is another Pride design from me but it’s also part of the C2C Coffee CAL! I love it and I am so excited to see it all done. In my head, the blanket looks fun and exciting with all the different squares. But I’m also nervous, because I’ve designed all the squares individually not as a whole… so there’s that risk that there won’t be a good cohesion between the squares. I mean, they’re all coffee but who really knows how they’re going to look.
Anyway, I hope you don’t find this design intimidating. It’s actually not bad if you’re using bobbins or have the space to keep all the skeins in tact but out of the way. I’m very fortunate that my spouse doesn’t mind that I take up half the couch with yarn. He kinda just goes with it and uses the other couch and leaves me my yarn space. Ha! He gets that sometimes I need to put a project to the side and not to touch it. So, what I’m saying is… it’s not hard but you might want to make sure you have a good project bag to pack it up with and use those bobbins 😀
Like all the C2C squares, I followed industry standards, I decided to have the written instructions in the pdf only and below is the graph. If you find you’d rather have the instructions written out for you, I do hope you’ll purchase the pdf.
Happy crocheting! I hope you like the Rainbow and Coffee Cup C2C Afghan Square <3
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.

At this time I haven’t decided how I want to join all the squares, so feel free to drop a comment below if you’d have any advice. I might add a border to the squares later or maybe just sew them together. Who knows!
Don’t forget, you can buy an ad-free pdf of the written instructions for this pattern in my Ravelry shop.
