Crochet Purple Stripe C2C Blanket

PurpleC2C_1

Pretty Purple Stripes! I’ve been working on this blanket for awhile now. It was my back burner project that I would pick up here and there and take with me when I needed something simple and mindless to stitch. I decided it was finally time to finish this WIP (work in progress) and share with you the completed project. The best part is that you can choose any color combo for this blanket and with the repetitive rows, it’s a fairly easy one to complete! A great gift idea for all ages.

Materials:
– Bernat Super Value Yarn in Damson, White,  and Lavendar. Shop all colors at Yarnspirations.com. This is a worsted weight yarn with a large selection of colors! I’ve been working on this for so long that I’m not quite sure exactly how much I used. I’m guessing 3-4 skeins of lavender and two each of dark purple and white.
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Tapestry Needle

Finished Size: Approximately 52 inches tall x 40 inches wide. I’m a little under 5’3 and this covers my body. You can always increase in size by adding a larger border or by using thicker yarn and going up a hook size or two.

First you will need to download THE C2C GRAPH.

If you aren’t familiar with the C2C technique, I have a video class available HERE for purchase that teaches you this technique! The Crochet Crowd also has a very helpful video tutorial for FREE that shows you the basic technique of corner-to-corner crochet. Check that out HERE.

The Border:
Round 1: With lavender, SC between any two “squares” on your border, chain 2, SC between the next two squares, chain 2, repeat around. Be sure to make a SC + chain 2 + SC in each corner.
Round 2: Continuing with lavender, make 3 SC over first chain 2 space, 2 SC over next chain 2 space, repeat around. Be sure to make a SC + chain 2 + SC in each corner.
Round 3-4: SC in each stitch around with lavender yarn. Be sure to make a SC + chain 2 + SC in each corner.
Round 5: With dark purple, crab stitch (also called a reverse SC) around entire edge. Make a crab stitch + chain 2 + crab stitch in each corner.

    I find it funny that you start at the bottom right corner, I start with the bottom left, will that make a difference in how it looks?

    I am a knitter who dabbles in crochet and this is just lovely! I started one of these yesterday for a graduation gift and am very pleased with how quickly it is coming along. Thanks so much. I might just have to be a c2c convert ( for afghans at least)!

    Question about the border:
    After the first border round, are there 2 or 3 single crochets in each chain 2 space?
    Thank you!

    This blanket is so beautiful and simple! I love your color choices! I’m just getting back into crochet as a break from knitting (because I can never stop working with yarn), and I definitely need to add a C2C blanket to me to-make list! Thanks for the pattern!
