Sea to C Blanket

It’s been such a beautiful summer so far and so when I visited ACMoore to see what yarns were on sale, these Premier Yarn cakes in blues and greens caught my eye. I used corner to corner crochet or c2c, which at its simplest, is very easy to do and a beginner can get the hang of it very quickly. There are tons of tutorials online to teach you how to do it. Basically you are making little blocks of double crochets connected to each other with slip stitches. You work in diagonal rows increasing in the beginning and then decreasing in the end. C2c is also great for advanced crocheters, though, because it can be used to make a graph with any number of colors. In my “Sea 2 C” blanket I just used the one kind of color changing yarn and whenever I came to the end of a cake, I joined the next cake with the Magic Knot so there were almost no ends to weave in. It worked up super fast and I think it’s really pretty. For the border I did a simple shell stitch for three rounds, that I thought looked like waves and then finished with one round of Persian stitch. I used just about all of the eight cakes of yarn that I bought and “Sea 2 C” measures about 6’ by 4’.
