I have made a lot of corner to corner blankets over the past six years of crocheting. It is one of my favorite stitches. It’s quick and easy. I love the texture, and I love how easy it is to use a graph with it.
A few weeks ago, I was commissioned to make a very special baby blanket in memory of some angel babies. After some discussion, we decided the best way to go would be a corner to corner with a heart in each corner.
This blanket was very healing for me. It was therapeutic to make a blanket for a fellow Angel Baby Mama.
The lovely thing about this pattern is that it is just in time for Valentine’s Day. You could very easily alter it to be a holiday blanket just by changing the colors.
Four Hearts Corner to Corner Memory Blanket
H (5.oo mm) Hook
28 oz worsted weight yarn
21 oz background color – I used I Love This Yarn White
7 oz heart color – I used 3.5 oz I Love This Yarn in Soft Blue and Pink
This blanket is done in the corner to corner (c2c) stitch. If you would like a tutorial on this stitch there are several good ones out there. Here is one of my favorites.
The finished blanket measures approximately 36” x 36”. If you would like to make it bigger that could easily be done by adding a wider border or more rows on the sides of your graph.
This is a super quick project with very few ends to weave in.
For the border, I did one round of single crochet crocheting (making sure to crochet in the stitches and not in the chain-3 spaces) chaining two in the corners. I then did another round of single crochet with (single crochet, chain-2, single crochet) in the corners.
