I have been working on this blanket throughout the past month bit by bit. My time has been taking up fostering some cute little puppies recently and so I’ve had less crochet time than normal. But on the plus side, I managed to finish the latest project that I had been working on.
The blanket is made using a method called C2C (corner to corner) crochet. It is basically worked diagonally starting at a corner. I have never worked up this type of stitch before and I was dubious about attempting this first project using quite a lot of colour changes, though I found that once I got into the first few rows it really was very easy indeed.
As you can see, the effect is slightly cross-hatched as the rows are each worked in the opposite direction. You will also notice that some blocks or bricks (as they can be called) in this patter appear raised and others depressed.
The blanket is light using baby soft acrylic wool and measures 24″ x 18″, A perfect summer blankie for a crib, baby basket or car seat.
