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.
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.
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 Terracota and Antique White.
Kit now available!
This crochet blanket pattern is now available as a kit through Lion Brand! The kit includes the digital pattern with all sizes, and all the yarn you’d need to make the pattern. The best part of the kit is that you can customize the colors! I would love to see this pattern in gold and cream, or even jewel tones.

- Each square on the chart counts for one C2C square.
- The chart is read starting from the bottom right worked diagonally up to the top.
To make this blanket, you can use either the chart above, or use the written pattern below.
The pattern uses the double crochet C2C stitch pattern.
For each size, you will need the following amount of squares:
- Baby Blanket: 9 Squares
- Lapghan: 12 Squares
- Throw: 20 Squares
Once all of your squares are finished, it is time to assemble the blankets together. The layout of the blanket for each size is as follows:
- Baby Blanket: 3 squares across x 3 squares long
- Lapghan: 3 squares across x 4 squares long
- Throw: 4 squares across x 5 squares long
If you are using two different color combinations like I did in the sample, then you can arrange them any way you would like, or every other square like I did. It’s totally customizable to you!
Once you have laid everything out, you will begin seaming. For my sample, I used the slip stitch join where I put the right sides together, and then used a slip stitch join along the side edges. Another favorite seaming technique of mine is to use the mattress stitch.
