Herringbone C2C Blanket - Free Graph

After finishing the HeartSprinkle CAL, I had to immediately begin another blanket. I was HOOKED on the C2C technique. I immediately designed my first C2C blanket, and I decided to make it a super cute Herringbone pattern!



I got to work right away, and I was able to get through it pretty quickly. I like to crochet when I am waiting for my kids during piano lessons, and while my husband reads stories to them before bed.


I was able to make a lot of progress and when I got to this point I had a LOT OF BOBBINS. I needed a lot of white bobbins, I think I grossly underestimated how much white I needed. I think I had to go back to the store twice to get another ball of white. You better believe it that I'll be stocking up on white next time they go on SALE!


I got to this point and realized I made an error, and I spent two days fixing the mistake I made. Can you spot it in this picture? Luckily, it was just a short delay and I was able to finish my masterpiece in time!

The colors just turned out FANTASTIC. And it is just a beautiful, lightweight blanket that we will all enjoy!
