We are ready to party with our Celebration C2C Crochet Blanket! A lot of us are having at-home celebrations amid all the Covid closures and stay at home orders. In our family we celebrated both of our sons birthdays (they turned 9 and 11!), my husband and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary, and my birthday is only about 6 weeks away! So there is a lot to celebrate! This blanket is made up of 9 fun and festive corner-to-corner crochet blocks and you have the option to add a crochet banner like “Celebrate” or “Happy Birthday.”

You can find each of the crochet C2C block graph patterns in their own separate posts. Click on the links below to go to each one!
Note: I switched the placement of the ice cream cone and the present blocks before I joined everything together. The colors of the cupcake and the ice cream cone were so similar that I felt like they need to be separated.
Now let’s talk about joining the C2C blocks. I chose a very easy joining method which doesn’t take long at all.
The first thing you need to do is choose a color that you want your edges/seam to be. I chose blue for a nice contrast.
Next you will crochet around the edge of each corner-to-corner crochet block by working between each of the little pixel squares along the edges. Make a SC + chain 2 in between the little pixel squares. I have a complete video to guide you through this!
After you have made the borders around each c2c block, you are ready to join all of your squares together!
It helps to lay all of your blocks down in the position of how you want your finished blanket. You are going to continuously join the block seams vertically and then horizontally.
The idea of the join is to simply SC the chain stitches around the edge of your block together. You will crochet the start by sandwiching two of the blocks together. It is easier to hold and work into the chain stitches this way.
Work your hook under two chain spaces and make a SC, chain 2 and make a SC in the next chain space. Repeat until you’ve stitched all of the edges together. The video tutorial above will help clear up any confusion!
The border around the whole blanket is simple as well! I am making 2 SC in each of the chain spaces around the outer edge of the blanket. Make sure to make a SC + chain 2 + SC in each of the corners.
Continue with as many rounds of SC stitches as you’d like!
Add extra large confetti pom-poms to the 4 corners!
I hope you have enjoyed this month long project! Celebrate at home and stay stafe and healthy!
