Details about my blanket

I worked this blanket with multiple strands throughout, meaning that on the colored sections, I held one strand of the color, and one strand of white together as I crocheted.  On the white rows, I held 2 strands of white together.  I love the way the white softens the colors, and also gives the blanket a “heathered” look.  It also makes for a super chunky warm blanket, which my family loves.

C2C pattern is worked in the following repetition

INCREASE ROWS:
Rows 1-16  Crochet using 1 strand Soft Pink and one strand White
Rows 17-20  Crochet using 2 strands White

Rows 41-48 Crochet using 1 strand Sunflower and one strand White

I worked my colors into a muted rainbow pattern, but the possibilities are truly endless. You could stick with one color, alternate a couple different colors, or go with 5 different colors of your choice.
 

I truly love working with Caron One Pound yarn!  It’s so soft and the colors are so pretty and easy to use.  Click here to check it out

FINISHING

Because I loved how the rainbow colors worked up on this blanket, I decided to keep it simple without adding a border or any other embellishments (like pom pom’s or edging.)  I really love the effect of carrying white together with the color, and will definitely be using this method whenever I need to soften up the boldness of a color down the road.

My dogs sure did enjoy this blanket too!  Ha!!

    1. Hi Paige! As it’s a pretty large blanket to begin with, I did not include a gauge originally – but I can tell you that each individual square of the C2C pattern is right around 0.6″ (a little bigger than half an inch) and 5 rows of C2C squares should be approximately 3″ wide at the base! I hope that helps!
