I am having bittersweet feelings about this week! By now, you should have all of your squares crocheted (well, I’m still working on a few…) But here is your bonus! I wanted to create something special to go along with the blanket, and give it a little bit of flare .
A little while back I was pulling up to the corner store and saw this sign that said “Life is Sweet” and thought *THAT* would be *PERFECT* to top off the blanket. I love seeing all the blankets! You don’t need to crochet these if you don’t want to, but they are here for you if you do :). Maybe you can turn them into giant body pillows too!
Check out this post for the c2c border pattern.
Life is Sweet!
If you are landing here from somewhere across the interwebs…read more about the Sweet Treats Blanket CAL here, where you can grab all the patterns.

Pop Tart C2C Bonus Square by Elyse Jones of Artistic Yarn Creations
I’ve met so many talented crochet artists throughout this journey. Elyse Jones of Artistic Yarn Creations designed this beautiful Pop Tart C2C square as an addition to the Sweet Treats CAL. She was kind enough to share the pattern with everyone and offer it as a BONUS square!
You can swap out one of the 12 squares in the blanket or turn this cute pattern into a pillow! I absolutely LOVE it. Grab the bonus square pattern here, and while you are there, go ahead and LIKE her page. (Show her the love!)

What is C2C?
C2C means corner-to-corner. You are working each square from the bottom right size diagonally to the top left side. If you are not familiar with C2C, please refer to my post called C2C Basics to get familiar with this fun crochet technique.
C2C is great because you can use a graph to create some amazing patterns with wonderful color-work! Learn how to read a crochet graph here.
