Pizza My Heart Blanket: Free C2C Crochet Pattern

Pizza My Heart Blanket: Free C2C Crochet Pattern

Share a pizza your heart with my latest free C2C crochet pattern, the Pizza My Heart Blanket! Inspired by my favorite Valentine’s Day pun, this crochet blanket pattern uses the C2C crochet technique to create the perfect heart shaped pizza. If you are looking for something cute to crochet for your home, then this blanket is just the Valentine’s Day crochet pattern you need.

Inspiration

“You have a pizza my heart” is one of my favorite Valentine’s puns, and if you look at my Valentine’s Day themed crochet designs, this is my 4th pattern inspired by that pun. This year, crocheting a design with this pun means even more to me because I recently had to go dairy free. It’s dairy free, gluten free, and allergy free, haha. Perfect for any pizza lover that you know!

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.
