So it’s week 2 of my summer blanket CAL and I have another 4 charts for you to download. If you missed week 1 then you can find the charts for it HERE.
As I mentioned last week I am using acrylic DK yarn with a 3.5 mm hook but you can use any thickness of yarn you like (and the hook to match). Also you can use cotton or any other type of yarn you prefer. Obviously the thicker the yarn, the larger the square will be.
Again, if you don’t want to make a blanket then any of these charts can be used for smaller projects like wall hangings or cushion covers.
The technique I am using is corner to corner crochet, it’s really simple and there are lots of video tutorials on YouTube so you can learn how to do it. If you already know the basic crochet stitches then you will pick it up in no time. 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.
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.
So the squares I have made this week are a crab, a boat, a raspberry ripple ice-cream and a mint choc chip ice-cream. I wasn’t planning to give you both the ice-creams this week but one I had planned to share isn’t quite right so I need to make a few changes to it.
As I mentioned last week, you can change the background colours and shades to suit personal preference, I am going for super brights but they aren’t to everyone’s taste so you can of course use more neutral colours.
This is the boat and here is the chart…
This is the mint choc chip ice-cream and here is the chart…
This is the crab and here is the chart… with this one, if you want to make it a bit simpler then you can leave off the heart on the crab’s back. Just ignore it on the chart and keep going with the orange.
This is the raspberry ripple ice-cream and here is the chart… with this one you could make it simpler by leaving out the raspberry ripple part and just making it vanilla ice-cream. If you wanted to do that then just ignore the pink and stick with cream.
