Harry’s first true friend. With his scruffy red hair, freckles and hand me down robes he finds a special place in every Potter Head’s heart.
When making my Ron square I used Red Heart Super Saver Yarns in Carrot for the hair, Buff for his skin, Gold and Garnet for his tie, White for his shirt and Black for his robe and eyes. I made my square in half double crochet corner 2 corner with an H hook. You can grab your Ron graph here Ron by Crafty Ridge
I noticed when working on Ron that I had to pull my yarn over a square or two from time to time. I did this without having to cut my yarn by making sure my tension wasn’t to tight or to loose. I worked my next set of hdc over the piece to make sure it is hidden.
For that really finished look I do a row of sc around my finished square, changing colors as the colors change in the square. This gives it a clean and crisp edge for you to add your border to when you finish your afghan.
If you have never done c2c there are a ton of tutorials out there on YouTube. My favorite for the basics is by Mikey over at The Crochet Crowd! If you know the basics and just need a little help with changing colors than you can check out my post A New Texture for Your Graphghans here on the blog.
