I’m starting a C2C (corner to corner) summer blanket CAL (crochet along) and I’m super excited about it!
It’s going to be made up of lots of 15 x 15 block squares with a range of summer designs on, I’m going to be using super bright colours but obviously you can adjust the colours to suit your style if you are joining in, it will be great to see it in more neutral colours or pastels.
Each week I will share the free graph chart patterns with you so you can download them and get to work, you can do it at your own pace, if you feel like four a week is too many and that you won’t get it finished in time for this summer then you can always set a goal to have it done for summer 2020!
The technique I am using is corner to corner crochet, if you aren’t familiar with this then there are some great tutorials on YouTube. You work diagonally and only use one stitch (treble or double depending on UK or US terminology) so it’s super simple once you learn how to do it.
If you didn’t want to use corner to corner crochet then you could also use these charts for tapestry crochet, pixel crochet or puff stitch crochet.
The charts I am sharing are only 15 x 15 so they are nice and simple, perfect for beginners.
I am using acrylic DK yarn with a 3.5mm hook but you can obviously use chunkier yarn or cotton and the hook to suit your choice, whatever you like!
If you are joining in and sharing on Instagram then don’t forget to tag me @discoslothdesigns and use the hashtag #c2csummerblanketcal so I can see your work.
Obviously if you don’t want to make a blanket then any of these designs can be turned into wall hangings or cushion covers.. let your imagination go wild!
So the four charts for this week are a kiwi, tent, watermelon and palm tree.
This is the watermelon and here is the chart..
