Starburst C2C Quilt Block: Free Crochet Blanket Square Pattern

If you love classic quilts, then you’re going to love my latest free C2C crochet pattern: the Starburst Quilt Square! This C2C crochet blanket pattern can be made into a blanket by itself, or you can join it with my C2C crochet mystery quilt. It even includes a video tutorial, so that this C2C crochet blanket is beginner friendly and nice and easy. You’re going to love it!

Inspiration

I am a big fan of classic crochet quilt, and am always looking for new ways to bring vintage quilt designs to life through crochet! For this quilt square, I was inspired by the classic starburst design. I love the geometric style of this design, and there’s just something about it that makes me happy! My goal was to capture the geometric triangles and squares that come together to create an exploding star. Through a lot of trial and error, I’m super excited with the result!

Construction

C2C crochet is one of my favorite crochet mediums to make blankets with, and it was perfect for the style of this square. Since quilt blocks are done with such defined lines, they transfer over very well into C2C crochet. I made my quilt square with dk weight yarn, and the double crochet C2C stitch. What’s great about this pattern is that you can use two different weights of yarn to make it. If you want to use worsted weight yarn, then you use the C2C crochet half double crochet stitch. If you want to use DK weight yarn, then you do the normal double crochet C2C crochet stitch! That way you can use whatever yarn you’d like to for this.

I’ve created a video tutorial on my Youtube channel to help walk you through making this square! You can find that tutorial on my channel: Starburst C2C Quilt Block Tutorial.

Temperature Blanket or Patchwork?

The great thing about this pattern, is that you can make it two different ways! I have a temperature blanket version available, where you get to pick out all of the colors and color in the pattern based off of what your daily temperatures are. Then there is a pre-filled patchwork version available! That version just involves you making it and choosing the colors. I’ve done all the other work for you. It’s also the version that has a written pattern since all of the blocks are laid out already. It’s totally customizable to what you want it to be!
