Kangaroo C2C Square - Free Crochet Pattern + Graph | Wildlife Graphghan CAL Block 24

Welcome to a new animal block of the Wildlife Graphghan CAL!
This time I’m bringing you a cute kangaroo! It would be awesome to add to an Australian themed blanket, near the Koala, don’t you think? Or you can use it to make a pillow cover, wall hanger, a bag, etc!
I hope you will enjoy it!

The Kangaroo C2C Square it's a free crochet pattern that you can find right here on My Hobby is Crochet blog!

For this pattern, I am offering you 2 pattern versions, one as seen in the picture above and one with less color changes. For each version you will find both written row by row color counts and a graph!

For my crocheted version with more colors, I wanted to use my leftover yarns.

After I have crocheted my block, I thought that maybe more gray would look better for a kangaroo, not to be confused with a deer. But I like this version also!

Make sure to visit the Wildlife Graphghan CAL page for the other animal blocks, but not only!

There are also detailed instructions and video tutorials for the corner to corner method with the half double crochet used + crisp color changes!

Kangaroo C2C Square - Free Pattern

GAUGE: 6 C2C tiles = 10 x 10 cm (4 inches x 4 inches)

SIZE: the square is 25 tiles x 25 tiles and approx. measures approx. 15 inches X 15 inches (38 cm x 38 cm)

NOTES:
1. You will use the C2C with the hdc, working the square on the diagonal starting from bottom right corner to top left.

2. The even rows will be worked on the right side of work.

3. The uneven rows will be on the wrong side of work.

4. On the graphic you will read the even rows from top to bottom ↙ and the uneven rows from bottom to top ↗!

5. The first row with color changes (Row 13) it's an uneven row, so you will be working on the wrong side of work! That means that you will have to place the yarn strands to the front of your work!

6. For the even rows (right side) you will place the yarns to the back of the work!
