Let the yarn do the heavy lifting for you in this terrific design!
Here’s an awesome blanket, perfect for the contemporary new mom. This project has more of non-traditional and non-conventional feel to it that is so appealing. I could easily see this blanket displayed on a wall as art as well.
Brittany used Bernat Pop! for this project and it’s absolutely the perfect use for the gradient style cake yarns. You’ll be making squares in diagonal box stitch. This has also been called diagonal brick stitch and crazy stitch, among others, over the years. Although corner-to-corner (C2C) is only a direction of work, it too has now become the name of this stitch pattern in most internet circles.
Although the pattern looks difficult and appears to have a lot of color changing, it’s really super easy! The yarn is actually doing all that extra work for you. When you visit the site, it’s so quick that you might even miss the instructions. Scroll through carefully and you’ll see them. Brittany has even made a video for you.
Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
