Want to work through your C2C 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 pattern on Ravelry or Etsy.

Construction

Isn’t it cool how we can create pictures 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.

The Yarn

To make this corner to corner crochet blanket, I used Lion Brand Pound of Love Yarn. I’m so glad I chose this yarn for this blanket pattern! It is so soft, and it makes the most wonderful blankets. If you’ve never used this yarn before, it’s a worsted weight 4 yarn that is 100% acrylic. It has over 1000 yards per skein and costs only $12 per skein, which makes it one of the most affordable yarns to make blankets with! I used the colors Olive and Antique White.

The Kit

This pattern is now available as a kit with Lion Brand Yarn! Each Lion Brand Yarn kit includes all of the yarn you’ll need, plus the digital pattern available for you to download. With this kit only needing 2 skeins of yarn, you can get it for just $27, or less if they are having a sale! My goal was to make sure this kit was as affordable as possible. Oh, and I can’t forget to mention that you can customize the kit to include any color of Pound of Love that you’d like. So many endless color possibilities!
