Take it Easy C2C Blanket


I knew this day would come.

I would dive into the C2C world and never look back.

This is my FIRST ever C2C blanket and I want it to be yours too!

I'm not sure why I thought corner-to-corner crochet was intimidating...but I did.  There are a ton of talented makers out there that provide every resource you need to help you along.  Reading the patterns, making your own grids, colour changes, increase rows, decrease rows and more.  There's a chunk you will need to know before you start but just like riding a bike....it's so easy once you get it and you'll never forget it.

I tasked myself with a yarn that was full of colours so it made my blanket much easier.

I used Chroma Twist Worsted in the colourway TIKI from We Crochet.

It's the perfect weight, works up quickly, and ....NO colour changes with very few ends to weave in. 

Are you sold yet?

Each ball of Chroma twist is a sturdy yet soft yarn with a thick-and-thin strand that mimics beautiful hand spun yarn - no 2 skeins will ever be the same!  Which makes it perfect for a C2C blanket, just pick up a ball and not ever think about....the colour changes will do all the work for you.

I would definitely suggest doing this for your first blanket so you can get used to reading the graph/pattern and understanding your increases and decreases.

I'm already thinking of all the fun things I can make all year 'round with C2C!



First, I've added links below to talented makers that have provided amazing and detailed guides to everything you need to know about C2C. Check them out!
