Bald Eagle 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)

YARN AND COLOR CHOICES:
Same as for all the other animal/bird blocks that are part of the Wildlife Graphghan, I have used Red Heart Super Saver yarn. Many of the colorways were already used for the previous blocks, so you probably have some left overs in your stash ….

I have used 3 shades of gray ( from the darkest to the lightest shade): Charcoal, Gray Heather and Dusty Gray.

For the eyeball I have used a small left over of the yellow-greenish color, that is part of the Red Heart Super Saver Retro Stripe yarn.
You could also replace it with the same Gold color used for the beak, if you prefer… or use another yellow(ish) color you have in your yarn stash.

For the body feathers I have used Coffee colorway and the darkest brown shade from the Red Heart Super Saver Latte Stripe (named Mocha in the pattern) to highlight the feathers.
If you prefer and want to keep things more simple, you can totally leave out the Latte Stripe (Mocha) and work the whole body feathers with Coffee instead.

See the supply list below!

SUPPLIES :

ABBREVIATIONS:
- RS: right side

  • bl = Black
  • c = Coffee
  • m = Mocha - from deconstruction of Red Heart Super Saver Late Stripe

NOTES:

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. For the uneven rows (left side) you will place the yarns to the front of the work!
The first row with color changes (Row 7) 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!
