C2C Blanket – Basic

For this written C2C tutorial I have done an example of 4×4 blocks however to continue with a blanket keep increasing until you reach your desired width then begin your decrease. For a square blanket decrease on both sides, for a rectangular blanket decrease on one side and continue increasing on the other until you reach your desired length then begin to decrease both sides.

STITCHES AND PATTERN INFO

  • This pattern is written in US terms
  • Ch = chain
  • DC = double crochet
  • Slst = slip stitch
  • Chsp = chain space
  • [] = stitch count
  • {} = additional information

MATERIALS

For a c2c blanket you can use any yarn with the corresponding hook. For the tutorial pictures I have used Caron Simply Soft with a 6mm hook

PATTERN

INCREASES

  • To start your blanket begin by chaining 6
  • In the 4th Ch from the hook work 1 dc, then work 1 DC in each of the next 2 chains [1 ch3, 3dcs total] This is your first block completed which also completes the first row. See below picture guides
  • To start the second row begin by chaining 6, then work a DC in 4th Ch from hook and the next 2 chs, this completes your first row 2 block. See below picture guides
  • Now you have your first block complete, turn the work and slst into the ch3gap from the start of the first row 1 block. See picture guides below, the first picture points to the ch3gap, the second after your slst.
  • To complete the 2nd row you need 1 more block, to work this block you will begin by ch3 then work 3dc into the ch3gap. This completes your 2 blocks for row 2. See picture guides below.
  • For row 3 you will have 3 blocks.
  • Begin with a ch6 and work 3dc starting in the 4th Ch from your hook,
  • Turn your work and slst into the ch3gap,
  • Ch3 then work 3dc into the ch3gap,
  • Slst into the ch3gap of the next block
  • Ch3 then then work 3 DC into the ch3gap. This completes your 3 blocks for row 3
  • For row 4 you will have 4 blocks
  • Begin by ch6 and work 3dc starting in the 4th Ch from your hook, turn and slst into the ch3gap,
  • Ch3 and work 3dc into the ch3gap, slst into the next ch3gap,
  • Ch3 and work 3dc into the ch3gap, slst into the next ch3gap.
  • Ch3 and work 3dc into the ch3gap. This completes your 4 blocks for row 4
  • See below picture for completed row 4

To continue growing your blanket keep increasing by one block per row using the same method as row 4

DECREASES

Once you have reached your desired width you will begin to decrease your blanket.

  • To start decreasing begin by ch3, turn your work and slst into the ch3gap, see picture below
  • {You will create the next 2 blocks the same as on your increase rows}
  • ch3 and work 3dc into the ch3gap, then slst to the next ch3gap
  • Ch3 and work 3dc into the ch3gap. This completes your 3 blocks for your first decrease row. See picture guide below
  • {If you are creating a rectangular blanket you will need to create an increase block instead of a decrease block here, refer back to the end of row 4}
  • To start your next decrease row ch3 turn and slst into the ch3gap see below picture guide
  • {work the 2 blocks for this row in the same method as before}
  • ch3 and work 3dc into the ch3gap, slst into the next ch3gap
  • Ch3 and work 3dc into the ch3gap. This completes your row.
  • Begin the next row by ch3 turn and slst into the ch3gap
  • {The final row will consist of 1 block}
  • ch3 and work 3dc into the ch3gap, slst to the next ch3 gap
  • I personally then prefer to finish the block by ch3, turn and slst into the ch3gap.
  • See below picture guides
