Letter to Santa Crochet Square

The Letter to Santa crochet square is the most Holly Jolly afghan block you’ll ever crochet!

You really need to crochet one of these letters for that special Christmas blanket that you’ve been working on!

I’ll be honest. Since this square is crocheted with the mini-C2C stitch, you’ll need a lot of patience weaving in all those ends.

Ugh…who likes weaving in ends?

ARE YOU NEW TO MINI-C2C CROCHET?

If you’re new to C2C crochet, I have a couple of tutorials (+videos!) that can help you with:

Embroidering on Crochet

Moreover, you’ll have to put your best embroidery skills at work to transform your crochet square into a proper Letter to Santa!

To be exact, you’ll not need your best-best-best embroidery skills. It will just be enough to know the back stitch!

If you are not sure about how to back stitch, here is one useful resource, and another nice link to learn some more basic stitches.

But I can tell you that all the effort sewing in ends and embroidering your crochet square will be so totally worth it!
