|Just beginning first colour stripes|
I saw a photo and a post on Facebook from someone who was just finishing her C2C crocheted blanket. I was intrigued I love crochet but had no idea what a C2C blanket was. After some internet research I discovered that it simply meant corner to corner and that's exactly what you do. You start with 1 block of crochet and increase on every row until it is the size you want, decrease on every row until you are back to one and finally add a border, that's all there is to it.
I am always keen to try new things and here is my first attempt the photos show my progress stage by stage.
I made this first one using a free pattern from www.redheart.com in cream,coffee,minty green and yellow DK yarn using a 5mm hook. The finished blanket measures approx. 28" square. This pattern is easily adjusted to any size you choose.
I am absolutely delighted with the results it's so easy why didn't I know about it before. I have finished a second one and started a third. You could say "I am now hooked on C2C"
