"The front panel of the pillow is a C2C square of the American flag! There are even 13 stripes & 50 stars! Included below you will find the chart of the flag plus the written instructions, as well as link & tips for working up C2C patterns in general. You’ll be using hdc C2C crochet techniques to create the square. You’ll need to know how to do the hdc C2C crochet stitch, made from half double crochets, chains, and slip stitches. Click here for my blog post on this technique, which includes a video tutorial a well. The traditional C2C stitch consists of a ch 3 + 3 dc to form one C2C pixel, and each increase is ch 6 + 3 dc. To make my blanket a more manageable size, I used ch 2 and 3 hdc for each pixel, where each increase was ch 5 + 3 hdc. This design also includes color changes. You can do these by either carrying the colors, or by creating yarn bobbins that you join to the square as you need a different yarn color."
