While working on a corner to corner blanket with a word across the bottom, I thought it would be better to share a basic corner to corner project first so I could go further into detail to explain the construction, and then share my other blanket a little later as the pattern will have block colors, not actual stitch instructions. In future corner to corner projects that aren’t worked in a solid color, I will probably refer back to this blanket pattern as reference.

Now, my blanket is worked in a solid color, but you could use some Caron Cakes yarn (or similar) for an easy, colorful blanket, or change colors as you see fit through the pattern.

Materials:

  • 2960 Yards of Worsted Weight Yarn - I used about 8.33 (1/3) Skeins of Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn in the Ivory colorway
  • M13/9mm Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends

Material Notes:
For this blanket, two strands of worsted weight yarn are held together. In it’s place, you could use one strand of chunky/bulky (#5) yarn. Take a gauge. If you don’t mind a slight difference in measurements, gauge isn’t essential. You could even go up a hook size, and use super bulky yarn for a larger blanket.

Yarn Alternative/s (if using the worsted weight): Red Heart’s With Love.

Time Spent:
This blanket works up in just over 11 hours.

Measurements:
42.25” Wide by 47.75” Tall

Gauge:
11 DC by 6 Rows = 5” x 4.5”

Abbreviations:
DC - Double Crochet
SC - Single Crochet
HDC - Half Double Crochet
