Hi everyone! So, uh, how are you? Anyone else trying to stay at home and stay safe but also stay sane? Is crochet helping with that? It helps me, which is why I’m still excited to share with you this week’s new pattern, the Travel Mug C2C Afghan Square!
Are you following along with this year’s CAL? This year I took the opportunity to try something new, learn to make a C2C pattern, and I am LOVING it! And, of course, I had to make my favorite design ever, coffee! And this month’s square is based on one of my favorite designs from a couple years ago, the 8″ Tapestry Coffee Mug Afghan Square. I was trying to think outside the box with that designs… so why not steal it for this year’s CAL?
Anyway, I hope you do like this month’s square and give it a chance while you’re hanging out, all safely, at home. I might take your mind off all the things going on. I know that’s what I’m using crochet for. That an exercise (if you watch my IG stories you might have seen me talking about running, which I’m doing because it’s nice to focus on other things. Ya know?).
Oh! And I wanted to mention that I’ve included a couple videos below on how I like to change colors and carry yarn in C2C patterns. I hope they’re helpful to you. If they are, let me know, and I’ll try to include more in future patterns… even if it was very scary to record. Did I even make sense? Who knows! Ha.
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 Travel Mug C2C Afghan Square <3

- US G (4.00 mm) crochet hook
- Size #4/ worsted/ medium weight yarn
- 4 colors
- I used Lion Brand Yarn Basic Stitch Anti-Pilling
- Specifics in the Notes
- Notions: needle, measuring tape, scissors
- 7 squares x 7 rows = 4.5”
- This is a C2C pattern worked from the bottom right corner to the top left corner.
- This pattern is a square, so you don’t have to worry about increasing on one side and decreasing on the other.
- Each C2C square consists of 3 double crochets and a ch-3. The directions will only tell you what color (ie: Color A, Color B, etc…) and the number tells you how many squares to make.
- Check out the tutorial by Meghan Makes Do on how to do C2C designs if you’re unfamiliar on this technique.
- You will need to know how to change colors in a C2C for this pattern.
- Rows 1 – 36 you will be increasing and rows 37 – 71 you will be decreasing.
- The even numbered rows are worked down and the odd numbered rows are worked up. The even numbered rows are the Right Side.
- In the photos: Color A is cream (Lion Brand Yarn Basic Stitch Anti-Pilling in Ecru 7 oz/ 370 yds), color B is green (Lion Brand Yarn Basic Stitch Anti-Pilling in Olive 1.5 oz/ 79 yds), color C is blue (Lion Brand Yarn Basic Stitch Anti-Pilling in Turquoise Heather 1 oz/ 52 yds), color D is white (Lion Brand Yarn Basic Stitch Anti-Pilling in White .5 oz/ 26 yds), and color F is brown (Lion Brand Yarn Basic Stitch Anti-Pilling in Taupe Heather .5 oz/ 26 yds).

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.
