SQUEARE DIAMOND BABY BLANKET – FREE GRAPH

Here is a free crochet C2C blanket pattern for you.

How it all started.

When I learned crochet, I was completely new to the terminologies and names of the stiches and I joined a crochet group in Facebook named, Crochet Addicted. It was a huge group with people from all over the world, who would post such beautiful and inspiring crochet works they have done. I should tell you, it also can be a rabbit hole; you can keep scrolling and scrolling mesmerized in each post and reading through the hundreds of comments trying to catch how they made them etc. It’s totally worth it! I learned so much in my initial stages of crochet. You also can post any question you have and get helpful information you need.

Disclaimer: This is not a written pattern. It is only a Free graph.

In this group I came across this word C2C Blankets. “Hmm… A strange name for a blanket” I thought. Then I learned C2C stands for ‘Corner to Corner’. Then it made sense to me because whenever someone posts a picture of their blanket in the making, its almost always a triangle. I also understood most people who made these huge blankets, followed a graph. It was really interesting to me. People even converted photographs into graphs and crocheted them as gifts.

Thinking to see what’s all the fuss about this C2C, I decided to make a blanket myself. I made one, then another one and another one and now I have made my own graph pattern.

The C2C Blanket!

What you should know about C2C is, it is not a hard stitch to learn. Once you Understand the concept of turning over when you get to the corner of each line, it’s real easy and mindless.

If you are still a beginner to C2C, you can check this link. She teaches from how to start, to colour change, to how to end.

If you are already familiar with C2C blankets, you might already know that there are different types of ways we can make C2C blanket.

  • Follow the graph corner to corner. Click here to see how.
  • Breakdown the graph to squares, make the squares separately and treat it like a granny square blanket. Click to see Method 1, Method 2 and Method 3.  
  • Breakdown the graph to squares and do a join as you go blanket. Click here to see how.

I made this blanket following the ‘Join as you go’ method. You need to build each square with appropriate colour changes and join it as you go.

I made this blanket with different brands of yarn to get the specific colours I wanted. It was all medium weight yarn. Although, if you are a beginner, I highly recommend you get the same brand for all colours.

Each block measures approximately about 4 inches in length and width. Which makes the blanket about 40inches long and 32 inches wide approximately before border.  

Materials you need for the blanket:

  • Crochet hook 5mm
  • 2 skeins of White yarn – 590 yrd each
  • 1 skein of Grey yarn – 590 yrd
  • 1 skein each of Yellow, Pink, Green, Blue yarn – 315 yrd each
  • Darning needle
  • Scissors

Once you complete the graph, You can do a border of your choice. In my case I went with the simplest border so the body of the blanket will be highlighted.
