One of my first projects of the New Year is to host a crochet along! This is my first crochet along and I'm very excited to share this crochet project with you. I have decided to design a toddler/child size Alphabet afghan. The blanket will be made up of crochet squares that are worked corner to corner. Each letter will be its own square which will be sewn together once all of the letters have been completed.

Each week, I will share two new letter patterns with you.  If you follow along and stay on schedule, you'll have your Alphabet blanket completed before Easter! What an awesome Easter present this would be! CLICK HERE to sign up for my email list so I can send you the patterns!

If you want your blanket to be reversible, you can carry the colors along with you as you're crocheting. I show you how to do this in a video tutorial:

Pattern for starting from left to right

Crochet the pixel graph using the corner-to-corner (c2c) technique. Use the traditional method of making three double crochets for each square. I chained 5 to start each new row (instead of 6) and I chained 2 at the beginning of each square (instead of 3).

Border

I decided that I wanted to have a thin border around each square. Not only do I think each square would look nicer, it will also make it easier to sew the squares together (you'll just match up the stitches!).

Attach your white yarn. In each corner you will work a (hdc-ch 1-hdc) and for each edge of the square you will (hdc-ch 1) between each of the individual "tiles" (the small squares that make up the entire graph).
