Southwestern Style C2C Graphghan

This download is the graph only.  Project assumes you know how to crochet in the C2C (corner to corner) style.  If not, learn how via this great tutorial.

Details about my FINISHED THROW

Any worsted weight yarn can be used for this project.

MY SUPPLIES
Loops & Threads Impeccable Yarn in Aran (that is the color name, not the weight)
Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Colonial Blue and Mustard
Red Heart Super Saver Accent in Paradise, Cranberry, and Coral

Hook used:  Size H (5.0mm)

Finished throw size is approximately 45″ by 60″

My thoughts/TIPS about this PROJECT:

First – DON’T BE INTIMIDATED.  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.  And if you get too tangled, just snip off a few of the balls and reconnect them on the next row, you’ll just have a few extra ends to weave in.

I found it easier to work on this project at a table, it helped me keep things a little more manageable once it got to it’s widest point.  You could also probably work on the floor.  I am sure there are better ways to manage all of the balls of yarn, but for me I just tossed them all in a little bin (seen in the pictures below) to keep them from rolling around too much, and untangled them as I needed to.

Yes, there are going to be a LOT of ends to weave in.  I always use a backstitch method for weaving in – this is a great tutorial on how to do that.  If you can commit to all that end-weaving, I promise you won’t be disappointed.  This blanket is a gorgeous, texturey, colorful, thick, cozy piece for your home when it’s complete!

  1. Were you snipping each different color strand after color changes or were you just carrying the yarn? Just curious due to your second photo with the basket. It’s a beautiful pattern.

  3. I just absolutely love this blanket! I’ve been planning to start mine soon, though it seems daunting. I was wondering, did you use only 1 skein of each colour for your throw? And, do you think it would be easy to make the pattern larger? Thanks for the graph and your photos. It’s gorgeous 😊

  5. Just found your C2C throw!! Beautiful! I’m just now finishing up a toddler Minney C2C that I designed. Was wishing I had a pattern for a throw for C2C. I’ve fallen in love with the C2C! It’s easy and goes by fast. Yes the yarns do get tangled but no biggy. As soon as I finish this project and Christmas gifts I’m starting on this throw. Gorgeous!!

  6. Hi steph, may I know how many rolls of yarn you use for this? For each color. I’m a beginner I still don’t know how to estimate how many yarns. Hope you can tell me for this lovely piece of work😊😊😊

  7. Thank you for this Southwestern graph. I really like it and the colors you have chosen. I’ve made several of these C2C blankets but I have made them all with a character in them. This style would be perfect for those not interested in a character. They are a lot of fun and turn out wonderful. All that end sewing is not fun but well worth it once completed. And thanks for showing the tangled side of things too. Been there, it’s just part of it if you have an array of colors. I don’t have a website but you could view them on Ravelry.com under hubleyddavis. I do see one of these Southwestern ones in my future makings. Thank you again.

  8. Thinking of trying this. How many skeins of each yarn did you use? I was thinking of using simply soft, it runs about 315 a skein. Thanks for your response. 🙂

    1. I carry my yarn where it’s possible and the colors don’t show or leave them hang and pick them up on the next row. I never cut every color change – waste of yarn and too many ends to sew in. I believe I watched a good video on changing colors on the Crochet Crowd. They have a good video on corner to corner crochet and show the color change with the video and there are others. It’s really no different than with knitting. Just drop where necessary and pick up on the next row in the same area. Not always possible mind you. Just work it in when you can.
