{Crochet} C2C Crochet Heart Blanket


c2c heart

This corner to corner crochet heart rug has been one of my most popular projects ever! And guess what!? It’s EASY! After seeing lots of C2C projects online featuring hearts – washcloths, blankets, potholders – i thought it might be fun to make a great big chunky blanket based on the same idea.

I was confident i could create the corner to corner heart chart (graph) myself, so i grabbed some grid paper and started scribbling.c2c heart

There are some great C2C tutorials online, so i’m not going to reinvent the wheel, but instead i’ve provided you with a little list to get you started.

Once you understand how c2c stitches are made, the hardest part is counting your blocks and locating where the colour changes occur. It’s important to constantly refer back to your chart in case you’ve made a mistake. The only way to rectify mistakes is to undo!

Materials –

My chunky corner to corner blanket is made from Panda Soft Cotton Chunky in white and green. I used about 10 balls of white and 3 balls of green to make a decent size blanket, so approximately 13 balls in total.Β It was lots of fun watching the corner to corner heart appear in the blanket.c2c heartAnd finally, here is the chart that i created for my blanket. If you don’t feel confident in creating your own corner to corner crochet heart graph, you are very welcome to use mine. I used stitch fiddle to create this simple chart. Enjoy!c2c heart chart graph

      Hi Lila! You will need to create a new chart for a 40cm cushion. How many blocks you need will depend on your yarn and hook. I hope this helps. Mandy xx

    I’m wondering how I can increase the size of this heart blanket? Would I have to redesign the chart in order to do so? I really love your patterns!

      Yes you’d have to alter the chart a little so that the heart still sits in the centre. You could print it out and just pencil in some squares around the outside? I hope this helps. Mandy xx
