Caramel Apple C2C Square

C2C Candy Apple Crochet Blanket Square-03

Design Inspiration

The C2C Candy Apple Crochet blanket square was a little bit of a challenge. I tried to make it look like caramel was dripping off the apple, but getting the proper apple shape in just 25 C2C squares was challenging! After I finished, I shared the design with my crochet girls and said “what does this look like?” They all said “candy apple” so I was like – okay perfect!
