Gingham Crochet Corner to Corner

Blanket in LionBrand Wool-Ease

Yarn – Free Pattern

LionBrand Wool-Ease is a worsted weight acrylic / wool blend, perfect for anything from blankets to socks!

My favorite thing about Wool-Ease yarn by LionBrand is all the colors available!

It is so soft, easy to work with, and feels even better after it is washed a few times.Gingham C2C graph for Afghan

 

I chose this wonderful yarn for my latest design – This image was a hit on Instagram and appreciated by LionBrand fans, initiating a request for a pattern. Of course I wanted to share it!!

I know!! Isn’t it super cute??

While it looks challenging, it is simply a Corner to Corner (C2C) pattern made with Half-Double Crochet Stitch (HDC) using a Gingham graph for color placement (available for purchase here)

You will need:

  • Crochet Hook J/10 or 6 mm hook
  • Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight – I used LionBrand Wool-Ease Yarn in Dark Rose Heather, Rose Heather and Blush Heather
  • Gingham Chart
Gingham Graph for Corner to Corner (c2c)

Finished Size Each little square measures about 3×3. You can use this chart available on the LionBrand website to figure out how much yarn you need in order to make the size blanket you want. According to their chart, you will need approximately 1300 yards to make a 20”x30” baby blanket. http://www.lionbrand.com/faq

  1. How you do the next sqaure and others

    1. Hi Amy!! You would make this just like a normal C2C in rows. The only difference is that you will change colors according to the chart instead of each row.

  2. Hi Karla, this looks very pretty. Having never done a c2c blanket before, i am very unsure how to join in the second colour. Thank you, Kirsty

    1. Hi Kristy
      I would probably recommend trying a normal C2C tutorial on Youtube to learn the concept of making a C2C then you just easily follow the chart for color changes!

      1. Thank you Karla, am just starting a C2C throw right now, so hopefully I will understand the colour changes soon!! Kirsty

  3. Did you work every color block separately & then joined?

    1. Hi Iris,

      Nope, it is just like a normal C2C. The only difference is that you will change colors according to the chart instead of each row.

  4. Can’t find the graph in Lionbrand’s website

    1. The graph is available here for a small charge. The link above for the LionBrand chart is to determine how much yarn you need depending on the size blanket you choose.
