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 roses 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

For this C2C blanket, I wanted to make it in a cotton yarn so that I could use it all year long. I chose WeCrochet’s Comfy Worsted yarn, which is one of my favorite cotton yarns out there. It’s a 100% cotton worsted weight yarn that has just the right combination of drape, softness, and breathability. I love it! It also comes in a wide array of colors that create the perfect summer color palettes.

If you would like to use another yarn, you can use any worsted weight yarn to make this. If you would like it to be useable all year round, I recommend a cotton blend. However, you could easily make this with an acrylic yarn as well for a more cozy feel.

Sizes

This blanket pattern comes in two different sizes: a baby blanket size and a throw size. I wanted to make sure that it would be useable for a nursery or to cuddle with in your family room! Here are the dimensions for it:

Baby Blanket Size = 45” wide x 40” long

Large Blanket Size = 52” wide x 60” long
