I’d be happy to help you with a description of a corner-to-corner baby blanket pattern! Corner-to-corner, also known as C2C, is a popular crochet technique that creates a textured and diagonal design. Here’s a general overview of how the pattern might be described:
Description: The Corner-to-Corner Baby Blanket is a charming and versatile project that combines simplicity with elegance. This crochet pattern utilizes the corner-to-corner technique to create a delightful textured blanket that’s perfect for keeping your little one cozy and warm. The gradual increase in stitches from one corner to the other forms a beautiful diagonal pattern that adds visual interest to the blanket.
- Worsted weight yarn in the color(s) of your choice
- Crochet hook appropriate for the yarn weight
- Yarn needle for weaving in ends
Size: The finished size of the blanket can be customized to your preference. You can easily adjust the number of starting chains and rows to achieve your desired dimensions. As a general guideline, a typical baby blanket might measure around 30 inches by 30 inches.
- Start: Begin with a slip knot on your crochet hook. Chain 6.
- First Block: In the fourth chain from the hook, work 1 double crochet (DC). Work 1 DC in each of the next 2 chains. You now have a “block” of 3 DC.
- Increase: Chain 6 (this counts as the first chain-3 of the next block). Turn your work.
- New Block: In the fourth chain from the hook, work 1 DC. Work 1 DC in each of the next 2 chains.
- Join Blocks: To attach this block to the previous one, slip stitch into the top of the chain-3 from the previous block.
- Repeat: Repeat steps 3-5 for each new row. Each row will have one more block than the previous row, creating the diagonal effect.
- Color Changes: To create color changes, simply switch to the new color at the start of a new row.
- Size Adjustment: Continue increasing until your blanket reaches the desired width. Then, start decreasing the number of blocks in each row to create the other diagonal edge.
- Edging (Optional): To finish the blanket, you can add a simple single crochet border around the entire edge.
- Finishing: Fasten off your yarn and weave in any loose ends using a yarn needle.

Remember, crocheting is a creative and enjoyable process, so feel free to experiment with colors, yarn types, and sizes to make the blanket uniquely yours. Happy crocheting!
