Inspiration

Sloths are one of my favorite animals! If something has a sloth on it, then I pretty much want it. Maybe it’s their relaxed nature, furry coat, or smiling face, but they always make me smile! After my Tropical Toucan blanket was received so well, when I was planning out my summer designs, I knew I wanted to do a sloth blanket. I think you are going to love this smiling new friend!

Work through your crochet pattern much faster

Want to work through your crochet pattern a lot faster than using the graph? Though C2C crochet graphs are super helpful with crochet the pattern, I’ve found that the written pattern helps make things a lot faster! Not only can you see the exact number of stitches that you need, but you don’t have to worry about losing track of what rows you’re on with the graphs.

You can get the free graph pattern below, but if you’d like to use the written instructions, you can find them in the premium printable PDF for this C2C crochet blanket pattern on Ravelry or Etsy

Construction

Isn’t it cool how we can create flower fields with C2C crochet? For this crochet blanket, you’ll be using basic C2C crochet techniques to create the square. You’ll need to know how to do the basic C2C crochet stitch, made from double crochets, chains, and slip stitches. It 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.

If you’re new to C2C crochet, I’ve got a great Beginner’s Guide to C2C Crochet, that walks you through all of the techniques you need to start! It walks you through how to do the C2C crochet stitch, increase and decrease stitches, and has other helpful tips. You can find it here on my blog at: Beginner’s Guide to C2C Crochet.
