Finished C2C Patchwork Blanket

Finished size is 74 inches x 74 inches
Size I crochet hook
4 skeins ‘I Love This Yarn’ Rosy cheeks color
4 skeins each color: sage, tan, bluebell, Red Heart ‘With Love’ Yarn
1 pound skein Caron Lace yarn for joining and border color. I didn’t use the full skein, it’s the yarn I’m using to join the rows of my Temperature Blanket.

I used Rosy Cheeks ‘I Love This Yarn’ (Hobby Lobby) because I’ve had several skeins that I bought about 8 years ago. This blanket was a good opportunity to clear most of it out of my yarn stash.
Just a note: Red Heart ‘With Love’ yarn has a rose color called Cameo.

This blanket is made with my adapted pattern of corner-to-corner stitch (c2c) to give it more texture.
I joined the blocks with the ivy-vine stitch I figured out for my Temperature Blanket.

I started this blanket the first week of October and finished it the 30th. I’ve had such an enjoyable time crocheting the blocks for this blanket. The colors are comforting and the yarns are soft.

My husband and Shelibean has staked a claim on my blanket. lol It’s a big soft warm blanket. It’s perfect for them to cover up with, while sitting in his lounge chair napping watching TV.

Wishing you all Happy Crafting
And a Very Happy November!


My Big Big Baby Blanket

Last Spring, I bought some Bernat Baby Sport yarn. I’ve not done anything with baby yarn and decided to give it a go. Well, I tried the yarn with plain & basket weave knitting, plain & basket weave loom knitting and then tried it with block & shells & simple crochet to no avail.
I did not like the way it worked up, so I put it away.

My mind couldn’t let the idea of using the yarn go, so after a few weeks, it occurred to me try a corner to corner (c2c) stitch. C2C is like a slanted type of brick stitch. It’s like the Crazy Stich only instead of straight across rows it’s done starting at the corner and making slanted rows. Years ago, I made a solid blanket using C2C I’ve not done anything with either stitch pattern in years.
The c2c worked okay, but I wasn’t satisfied with it until after I adjusted it to make the brick a bit tighter. Then, I had to think of something to make and decided to buy some tiny tulips Bernat Baby Sport yarn and make it kind of like a patch work blanket.
The blanket is about 60 inches x 72 inches (5×6 feet).
It’s a nice warm snuggly blanket. I’m very happy with it.
