C2C Southwestern throw blanket

Free crochet pattern. Southwestern style corner to corner crochet throw blanket pattern with graph. C2C

Do you enjoy Corner to Corner (C2C) crochet? This Southwestern style throw caught our eye this week. The design is 100% perfect for the C2C technique – the blocks look great.

This design looks really challenging, but it’s so easy, you’ll be surprised!  If you’ve gotten the hang of C2C crochet, and you can follow along a graph, this blanket is not going to be hard for you.  The hardest part is managing the yarn, but even that wasn’t as big of a deal as I originally thought.

C2C is a crochet style which uses graphs to make patterns or designs in the crochet, arranged into small blocks. It’s often used to create very colorful or pictorial designs. Usually, you don’t get a full line by line tutorial as you might for a regular pattern because the stitch is easy and repeats for every block. But you do get a graph which shows which block should be in which color. Somethings the corner to corner blankets are called ‘graph-ghans’ because you follow the graph to make them.
