My Corner to Corner Afghan

Posted on February 22, 2015

Here is my first ever corner to corner afghan. I crocheted this using one strand of black yarn held with different shades of blue scrap yarn I had in my stash. I tried to do a color scheme by starting and ending with the same bright shade of blue yarn. I then just used some different colors with a light blue yarn in the center.

I used this corner to corner afghan pattern to crochet my blanket. The pattern has a good video tutorial that is found here which I found very useful on how to get the pattern started.

Here is one photo while the lapghan was in progress. Once you get the pattern down, this is a easy and fast pattern for making a unique-looking blanket. I enjoyed crocheting the pattern and will definitely be crocheting another corner to corner (C2C) blanket in the future.

I crocheted 24 rows total with the double strands of yarn held together using a N (9 mm) crochet hook. I worked one round of single crochet stitching around the entire blanket for edging using just the black yarn. I did 8 SC in corners, 3 SC in chain spaces and 1 SC in each stitch for my edging.

The lapghan used about 7+ ounces of medium weight black yarn and 6 ounces of various shades of blue yarn to complete the blanket.

Finished size is a 30 inch wide lapghan which I crocheted for the Warmth for Warriors 2015 lapghan drive.
