Winter Pickup Truck Blanket: Free C2C Crochet Pattern

Winter Pickup Truck Blanket: Free C2C Crochet Pattern

When you think of winter, what would be your ideal winter night? My dream winter scene would be through the snow in a vintage pickup truck, with a fresh cut tree, snow falling, and lights twinkling all over. If that sounds dreamy to you too, then you are going to love my latest free crochet pattern, the Winter Pickup Truck Blanket! Made using C2C crochet, it’s the perfect blanket to make for the holidays or winter. I’m even hosting a fun crochet along for the blanket that I’d love for you to join in!

What is a crochet along?

If you’ve never done a crochet along before and are wondering what it is, it is an event where each week part of a pattern is released and then you work through it over the course of the event. For this crochet along, we’ll be working through this blanket pattern and then having a fun community for the event in my Facebook group!

How does this crochet along work?

Each week I will be releasing a different square that is used in making the Pumpkin Patch Blanket. It will go from January 7th (first block posted on January 10) to February 7. The first week is the pine tree, then the snowflake, gift, and then the pickup truck square split over two weeks. Finally, we’ll have a week devoted to working on assembly for the blanket: blocking, edging, and joining the squares together. The free graphs for the patterns will be released here on my blog! If you’d like to get a jumpstart on the blanket, or have written line by line instructions, you can find those all in the premium pdf in my Etsy and Ravelry shops.

The crochet along (CAL) will be hosted within my Facebook group, where we’ll have posts to share about your progress, and a chance to win prizes! There are prizes from WeCrochet and Furls Crochet that I’m giving away to participants of the crochet along. You won’t want to miss out on these!
