Looking for a great corner to corner baby blanket to make for a little one in your life or for a gift? Check out this quick and easy one!
I finally decided to try out the whole corner to corner crochet thing and guess what? I love it! I remember the first time I saw a picture of a C2C crochet pattern and thought “wow, how did she get her stitches to turn different ways like that?”
Design Story and Inspiration for this Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern
I was definitely intrigued about the corner to corner thing but put it on the back burner since I had a lot of other projects going on. When I picked up some Bernat Blanket yarn I had no idea what I was going to do with it, I just knew that I liked how soft and bulky it was. When I finally did decide on a project I knew I wanted to try C2C and the Quick and Easy Crochet Baby Blanket was born!
Yarn Options for this C2C Blanket
This project works up super quickly using the C2C method, a large hook and this super bulky yarn. It’s also great in the fact that you don’t have to put a lot of thought into a complicated stitch pattern but it looks like you did.
Bernat goes on sale a lot at stores like JoAnn, so it’s easy to pick some up on sale. Many of you have this in your stash. You can also workt his in any super bulky (weight #6) that you like.

C2C Crochet Afghan Pattern Details
I made this original pattern during the times I needed a break from some other more complicated projects I had going on. Sometimes you just need a project that lets you crochet almost mindlessly. (Does that sound bad? With three little guys sometimes I need to unwind and give myself a break from figuring out stitch and row counts!)
And, just like with my most popular free crochet blanket pattern, my little guy absolutely loves it!
I also decided not to do an edging on this blanket because I just like the way that the natural edge of the C2C method looks with this yarn. This is probably the first blanket I’ve ever made and not had some type of edge, but I just really like the simplicity of this free pattern. If I were to do a border on this pattern I would use a round or two of just simple single crochet stitches, or you could use one of these 25+ crochet border patterns.
If you are new to C2C crochet (or even an experienced crocheter), try this project out and let me know what you think. View the written pattern below and be sure to watch the video tutorial.

Common Questions about c2c Blankets
To crochet an easy c2c baby blanket pattern, you will need anywhere from 300g – 600g of yarn depending upon the weight of the yarn. This easy pattern uses 600g of super bulky Bernat Blanket yarn.
C2C is a crochet technique that starts at one corner and works by building one block for every row you complete. When you have reached the desired width, you start the decrease section of removing one block every row until you are at the opposite corner of the blanket.
