My scrappy rainbow crochet blanket is finished. Hip hip hooray!!

The blanket was a gift and has gone to its new home - I hope it gets lots of couch snuggling before the cool weather is over for the year.

It’s a corner to corner blanket otherwise known as C2C. It’s a very simple blanket to make and grows quite quickly. Each colour is made up of 2 rounds. Or is it rows? I’m still not sure of the “crochet” lingo and as the name suggests, it starts at the corner and is worked diagonally. The corner colours were left over yarn from other projects, but the long rows in the middle section were crocheted with (new) full balls of yarn. I wanted to be sure that I’d have enough.

I must admit that when it came to the colour selection, it was basically what came to hand. I had the balls of yarn in a bag and I pretty much crocheted with the one that came to hand first - well except if it was the same colour. I tried to keep the colours far apart.

I love how it turned out and have started another C2C project. I’ll share more about that one, when I get a little more done and have a decent size to share.

We always need a continuing project for the evening on the couch, right? There’s something lovely and cosy about a basket of crochet and yarn sitting beside the couch - ready to be worked on as time permits, or as the mood strikes. Don’t you think?

  1. OMG this looks amazing. So much work in it too. I don't seem to have the patience or the talent to pull something like this off. #teamIBOT

  3. Looks amazing! The colours are great. C2C is so addictive. I've just finished making my son one in footy colours. I did four rows of each colour....because I detest darning the ends in :)
    I've started one using all my leftovers. I'll crochet until the yarn runs out so joins will be anywhere. It's going to be donated to a homeless shelter.
