Beautiful C2C Christmas crochet square pattern inspired by Scandinavian style decor. My Nordic Dove C2C crochet square is great for blankets, pillows or as a wall hanging on its own.
With the holiday fast approaching our attention is turning into decorating our homes. All the things that remind us of this special time of the year take their pride of place.
I love buying new decorations, however the old has a great charm. I absolutely adore an item with a story behind it on how it made its way into the family.
Handmade decorations or decorations handed down the generations are very popular in Scandinavian countries. Decorations are simple, natural with clean lines. I have taken an inspiration from these qualities and designed my C2C Christmas square – Nordic Dove.

C2C Christmas Square Event
I designed this beautiful C2C Christmas square as part of a special crochet along event celebrating the beauty of nordic style. Erin from Juniper & Oakes has kindly organised this event. Erin put together a group of 12 designers and each designed a lovely C2C Christmas Square inspired by the simplicity of Scandinavian style decorations for Christmas. If you would like to check out all the other designers involved and their beautiful designs click the button below.
The CAL is happening in Juniper and Oakes Facebook group where you can share your progress and connect with other people. There will also be a giveaway prize package to one participant who completes the project and posts a picture of their finished blanket to the group.
The yarn for this event has been kindly sponsored by WeCrochet. I used the beautiful Swish Worsted in White and Serrano.
C2C Square Techniques Used
This nordic Christmas square uses corner to corner crochet technique. It is also referred to as C2C for short. You work a box stitch diagonally from one corner to the other.
All the squares use mini C2C technique. That means that instead of double crochet stitch, the mini C2C uses half double crochet. If you have never tried this technique before or need a refresher, please check out the tutorial HERE. In order to reproduce these squares, you will need to learn the basic tips on colour work, these can be found ON THIS WEBSITE.
The crochet charts are available on each designer’s website for the duration of the CAL. If you wanted to get your hands on an eBook that contains all 12 squares, you can do so RIGHT HERE. All the charts and information is presented in a beautiful 81 page eBook that you can download instantly! That means you do not have to wait for the release of each square.
