Delicious Desserts C2C CAL: The C2C Root Beer Float Afghan Square

And here it is again, the end of April. How do we keep doing this? Ya know? Well at least to finish out the month we have something sweet, a sweet treat or a delicious dessert one might say. This week’s new free pattern is for the 4th in this year’s C2C CAL – the Root Beer Float Afghan Square.
As I’ve said before, this year’s CAL was supposed to be the “sweet treats” theme but before I could post my first square, someone contacted me saying she had a similar CAL going on (it was also named “sweet treats” and her first square was a cupcake too… what are the odds) so before I hit “publish” on that first post I had to think about a new name. And that’s why this year’s squares are more delicious treats than super fancy desserts. Although, dessert is in the eye of the fork holder, is it not?

Anyway, for this month’s square I wanted to lean into the hotter weather that’s coming our way and brought to you one of my favorite desserts from my childhood, the Root Beer Float. I have always loved the way the tangy root beer interacted with a classic creamy vanilla ice cream to make a really delicious treat that felt so refreshing to mix and drink. As research for this square I did buy a bottle of root beer and a carton of ice cream to make sure that I was really capturing the essence of this tasty treat. I think I nailed it TBH. 😀

Anyway, I do hope you like this square and check it out. I really do love how it turned out and had a lot of fun designing it. See ya in May for more new patterns 🙂
I hope you like this year’s theme and join in using the hashtag #DeliciousDessertsC2CCAL and #DivineDebris so I can share your makes!

Please note: I was provided the yarn for this pattern by Lion Brand Yarn for the purposes of making the C2C Root Beer Float 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.
