A Quick and Simple Blanket Crochet Pattern
The C2C or Corner to Corner blankets are EVERYWERE! The crochet stitch used for this blanket is a fun one to work and is sort of a mindless project stitch. Years and years and years ago (20 or more), I learned this stitch as the Brick Stitch. I've seen it called by other names and I've also seen other stitches called the Brick Stitch. No matter the name you call it, it still works out the same.
This blanket is worked from side to side and creates a fun little chevron look when using more than one color. It's easy to work to the size you want which means you're not limited to just a baby blanket or throw size. Make it yours! Have fun with colors and enjoy some crochet time!
