Angel C2C Blanket Square

The Angel Nordic C2C Blanket Square is one of twelve C2C squares in the Winter Nordic C2C Afghan CAL hosted by Erin from Juniper & Oakes.

Design Inspiration

When I heard about Erin putting together a Winter C2C CAL, I knew I wanted to participate. I also knew the pattern I wanted to do. I have always loved angels. My husband calls me Angel as my nickname. It was really fun to design this square. I always think of the nativity around winter/Christmas time period. I always picture angels around the nativity. They are my favorite part of the nativity besides Jesus.

Yarn:

I was blessed to be given yarn support from We Crochet/Knit Picks. We Crochet/Knit Picks provided yarn to each designer to design their square. The yarn I was given was Swish Worsted. Swish Worsted is 100% Superwash merino wool. This yarn for the most part was a joy to work with. It is so soft! The only issue I had with the yarn was it is not center pull so it would tangle more than usual for me. I did love how the soft the yarn feels. You won’t regret purchasing this yarn.
