c2c Baby Blanket

Beginner Baby Blanket

JANUARY 23, 2019

As you may know, I have really been enjoying designing c2c crochet projects and I think this soft and snugly baby blanket pattern would be great for beginners. I used a bulky yarn which makes the blanket work up quickly and I was really happy with how smoothly the Premier Puzzle yarn glided over my hook. I used the color "Cat's Cradle" but Premier's Puzzle yarn comes in many other beautiful self striping shades.

I'd love for you to follow me on Instagram and share your blanket pictures with me!

Finished Size

My blanket measures 30" x 34"

Gauge

13 squares/tiles equal 8"

Materials

-Crochet hook: J 6mm
-Yarn: 3 skeins of Premier Puzzle yarn (I used Cat's Cradle)
-large (3 and 3/8 inches) pom pom maker
-hot glue gun

Pattern

Pattern is the same for starting from right to left or left to right. 

You are working from the bottom right to the top left.

Blanket is 56 squares wide and 48 squares long.

Crochet the pixel graph using the corner-to-corner (c2c) technique, starting in the bottom right corner. Use the traditional method of making three double crochets for each square. I chained 5 to start each new row (instead of 6) and I chained 2 at the beginning of each square (instead of 3).

Pom Pom Instructions

Photos are from my Santa Hat.

Firmly and evenly wind your yarn around each set of arches. After the first set of arches, close them and then wind your yarn around the second set.

Cut the yarn between each set of arches. free santa hat crochet pattern

Use a scrap piece of yarn to tie the pom pom in place. I recommend you double/triple knot it.

Carefully open the arches.

Use a hot glue gun to place a dab of glue in the center of the pom pom. This will help prevent it from unraveling.

Fluff your pom pom and trim any long ends.

Use a tapestry needle to attach your pom poms (make 4) to the corners of your blanket.
