I have been working on my own version of a C2C blanket, and I thought I would share my progress. The graphs will be posted as they are created, and feel free to work at your own pace. I decided to make mine Halloween themed because it’s right around the corner, and by far one of my favorite holidays. I was first introduced to C2C when Sarah from Repeat Crafter Me started her Christmas throw. It’s beautiful. The process seemed easy enough, and once I designed my own graph and got the hang of it I was amazed at how quickly it worked up. The process goes even faster if you have yarn bobbins, which I would suggest looking into. It makes the color changes easier without the hassle of tangles.
Scrap yarn in Worsted Weight
-I used Loops and Threads Impeccable Solids
4.0mm Hook (G)
Yarn Bobbins (Optional, but recommended)
Each Square will be ~13″x13″, and there will be 20 squares in total. The finished blanket will be ~52″x65″. I wanted the squares to be a little smaller to be small enough to use up scraps. There are also a lot of images I wanted to use, and I wanted the option to incorporate a lot of them in. This project uses traditional C2C where you ch 6 and DC in 4th ch from the hook, and DC in the next 2 ch for the increases, and for the rest ch 3 and DC 3 in the DC space. Mikey from The Crochet Crowd has a wonderful video you can check out if you get stuck.
