Persimmon C2C Diamond Throw

Some are addicted to chocolates, others few are to shopping; I got addicted to C2C crochet stitch. Corner-to-corner crochet stitch is a common passion for crocheters. It is a treasure chest for any crocheter that has an infinite number of patterns, animated objects, animals, flowers and more to offer. All you need is a pixel art of what you want to make. You can easily find grid graphs online made available by many generous crocheters for us to work on and create beautiful art with yarn.

I tried hard not to get addicted to C2C crochet stitch after working on Woof! Woof! Baby Blanket and C2C Checkered Lap Blanket. So, I decided to make a chevron patterned lap blanket as something to take me away from C2C. I was halfway into crocheting the blanket when I realized that the difference in the thickness of the yarns (I bought) was adding additional weight to it. Also, I was running out of time.

I decided to drop the idea and I started looking for new crochet stitches, which will make a gorgeous blanket using rust, pale orange and cream combinations of yarn. I stumbled upon this Pinterest picture. Guess what! It was corner-to-corner crochet diamond shape blanket. 

Call it luck or love, I was back to C2C.

Process:

The Ravelry link from C2C Diamonds Blanket for Baby Hemmesch described the pattern as 

C2C¹ Squares Pattern: 
4 rows grey 
2 rows gold 
2 rows mint 
2 rows grey 
3 rows mint (start decrease on 3rd row of mint here) 
2 rows grey 
2 rows mint 
2 rows gold 
4 rows grey

I changed the grey to cream, gold to pale orange and mint to rust.

One way to get the overall diamond-shaped design is to start with small parts and then add them together. Starting with making 12 rows diagonal line patterns, measuring up to 8″, join four of these parts together to form a diamond shape. However, after working on the above pattern separately, I realized that quite a lot of yarn was getting wasted while changing colours. Also, the higher number of knots, the higher chances of the yarn getting entangled between. 

In my previous C2C Checkered Lap Blanket, I had used 15 squares of Taupe (measuring 10″) n 15 squares of Green (measuring 10″) to make 60×40 size blanket. So in order to achieve the same size in this particular blanket, I would have to work on 30 bits of the diagonal pattern. This would also require securing the knots of every piece, sewing the stranded yarns of every piece, and stitching these parts into a blanket. It seems to be a pointless investment of time and energy.

Therefore, I decided to create a bigger C2C¹ Diamond graph and join them to make a blanket. I completed the 4 pieces of the diagonal pattern and joined them. Using this section as one diamond pattern, I created the diamond a graph. Now the graph has 24 rows measuring up to 16″. The graph is a continuation of the small pieces. I was glad about the outcome since the final pattern remained unchanged and helped me save the time and energy.

I was able to complete the project in a month easily, with there is less wastage of yarn and less hassle of securing the knots. 

P.S. I avoid too many joints in my work assuming if the blanket is used roughly, the stitch will still guarantee a long run. Provided that the wash care instructions are followed for maintaining the originality of the product. You can still opt for 8″ diagonal squares.

Pattern:-

The number of rows to work is 24. The total size of this square is 16″. To achieve the 64X40 size blanket.

C2C Diamond Graph = 8

C2C Extended Diagonal Graph = 4

I have joined these squares using Invisible Join Stitch.

Note: The size might increase or decrease depending on the yarn and crochet hook used.

¹C2C crochet stitch:

  • [Chain 6.
  • R1: Double Crochet (DC) in 4th chain from the hook. 2 DC in next 2 chains. [ 1st corner block is made]
  • R2: turn the work, chain 6. DC in 4th chain from the hook. 2 DC in next 2 chains.  Slip stitch on the chain 3. (Chain 3, 3 DC) in the same chain 3 space of the previous row. [2nd row contains 2 blocks]
  • R3: Repeat R2 ]

²Decreasing C2C crochet stitch

  • [turn the last row. slip stitch on 1st DC, 2nd DC, 3 DC.
  • Slip Stitch(SL ST) chain 3 space. (Chain 3, 3 DC) in same chain 3 space.
  • Continue (SL ST, chain 3, 3 DC) in next chain 3 space.
  • Repeat till the last 2nd block. SL ST in the last chain 3 space. ]

Caution Section:-

  1. The size of one diamond square segment might increase or decrease depending on the yarn and crochet hook used.
  2. The wool gauge of rust and cream are same but pale range is different. Thus, I have increased the 6:3 ratio of basic C2C crochet stitch to 7:4 Also, I included 4 Double Crochet instead of 3 in C2C crochet stitch. 
  3. The same crochet hook is maintained throughout the process.
  4. I avoid too many joints in my work assuming if the blanket is roughly used, still the stitch will guarantee a long run. Provided that the wash care instructions are followed for maintaining the originality of the product. You can still opt for 8″ diagonal squares.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Length: 64″
  • Width: 40″

Optional Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement.
  • The edging can be made of Single Crochet (SC), Crab Stitch, Slip Stitch, Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC).
  • Instead of regular yarn, fur yarn will bring out a pop to the border.
  • Instead of going for 3rd colour for the border, use both the base colours around for alternate rows.
    • The border shouldn’t be too broad to pop out. The purpose should be to provide a clean edge.
  • You can add pom-pom or tassels (matching the colour with the edging or the base colour) at the 4 corners. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
  • Avoid the border and just add tassels/pompoms made of a mixture of the base colours.

Remember: do not overdo it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegant simplicity!!

Crochet Inkwell Baby Blanket for stroller free Pattern - kNot mY deSigns

Inkwell Baby Blanket for Stroller

A baby always brings happiness in the family. Parents start dreaming about a whole new world. In this busy life where we are burdened with liabilities, responsibilities and job pressure, the presence of baby helps you to mould yourself completely into a different timeframe; you act like a child, you become one. You start recalling the good old fun-loving and mischievous yet innocent days of your life. In this not only the baby is very well entertained, but also your mind is refreshed.

When my friend started discussing the ideal list of items that could be gifted to her friend who just became a mum, I suggested a baby blanket for home or outside on a stroller as an everyday use item. I chose this black-white-grey mixed yarn to make a unisex blanket for the baby.

Process:

The procedure is simple. 81 chains and Single crochet in each row till the size of the blanket is 39″x39″. Ideal size for stroller blanket is 37″x37″. It can vary based on the thickness of the wool too. It required 3 balls of yarn to get 39″ size of the blanket.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

39″ x 39″ is ideal for home or outside or stroller.

The sizes can be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the size of the blanket for a different purpose.
  • You can add a plush toy in the corner for the fun.
  • The edging can be made of Single Crochet (SC), Crab Stitch, Slip Stitch, Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC).
  • Instead of regular yarn, fur yarn will bring out a pop to the border.
  • Instead of going for a different colour for the border, use both the base colours around for alternate rows.
    • The border shouldn’t be too broad to pop out. The purpose should be to provide a clean edge.
  • You can add pom-pom or tassels (matching the colour with the edging or the base colour) at the 4 corners. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
  • Avoid the border and just add tassels/pompoms made of a mixture of the base colours.
  • You can attach flowers, beads, appliques or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather, fabric etc to make it more interesting.

Remember when the yarn contains multiple colours then it is best to go for a simple pattern. A combination of exquisite pattern and multiple colours do not age well. We draw attention to one feature that brings out the beauty, not the beast to get an exquisite piece. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
