Who's ready to see the rest of this blanket?  Then on to Part Three!  Remember to share your pictures with me on Facebook or Instagram by tagging @leftinknots :)  I want to see all of your amazing blankets!

This CAL is designed for beginners and experienced crocheters alike.  There will be step-by-step photos and video tutorials to help you master everything you need to know about the C2C stitch!  If you are just finding this project now, you will want to start here for all of your introductory information:

CAL Schedule:

Introduction: This post will give you all the information you need to start this project!

Week One (2/1/17): This week will include the pattern and instructions for crocheting the HDC C2C stitch, crocheting increase rows of C2C stitches, and how to color change in the middle of a row.

Week Two (2/8/17):  This week will include the pattern and instructions for crocheting C2C "maintaining" rows.  These are rows that neither increase or decrease the width of the project and allow you to make a rectangular shape.

Week Three (2/15/17):  This post! This week will include the pattern and instructions for crocheting C2C decrease rows.

Week Four (2/22/17):  This week will include the pattern and instructions for adding a border to your C2C blanket and how to finish it.

If you follow along with me, you will have a stunning, modern and stylish blanket finished by the end of the month!

Special Stitch (I highly recommend that you reference the photo or video tutorial if you are not familiar with how to do the C2C stitch!):

This blanket it constructed with the Half Double Crochet Corner to Corner stitch (C2C).

C2C Decreasing Row: this portion of the pattern uses decreasing rows.  Your "square" count will decrease by one each row.  In part two, you made "maintaining" rows by increasing on one side of the project and decreasing on the other.  Now, you will decrease on both sides of the project.

 

Gauge

5 square x 5 squares = 4" in C2C (using HDC)

 

Pattern Notes:

  • For part three, you will finish the rectangular shape of your blanket.  You will do this by crocheting "decreasing rows"
  • You can choose to work with multiple skeins/bobbins (as I have pictured) or you can opt to "carry" your yarn throughout your project.  It is a personal preference.
  • If you choose to follow the written color changes PLEASE reference the chart also as you go!  It is always much easier to catch mistakes right away instead of a few rows past it. For the written instructions, odd rows are worked "left to right" and even rows are worked "right to left" in reference to the chart.
  • In my example, Color A = Off White and Color B = Mulberry Bush
