Triangle C2C Blanket - Free Graph

Ever since I discovered corner to corner crochet, I have not been able to stop designing things! I love this thing!

It started with the Unicorn C2C blanket crochet along, then I designed the Herringbone C2C blanket, and now I'm introducing the Triangles blanket! 

I designed this blanket with my son in mind. He loves the color red, and there are shockingly very few "boy friendly" crochet patterns out there. My little nephew had a quilted blanket made from triangles, and I thought, I could make this out of C2C! So I went and designed this Triangle Blanket!

I got started in July, and unfortunately, it was a VERY HOT MONTH here in San Diego. We had so many days of 100+ degree weather, that I just didn't feel like crocheting a blanket. After a month of working on the blanket, I posted an image showing my progress, hinting the pattern would be coming soon:

I got a few responses eager for the pattern, which I had hoped to release within a week or two. However, my efforts were sabotaged by another month of very hot, humid weather in August. That, and I volunteered last minute to take over my daughter's soccer team, because the original coach had to step down due to health reasons. Well, now all the time I thought I was going to have to work on it was lost! (Not for a bad reason, though.) I am actually enjoying my first experience coaching, even though I have even less time to crochet.

It's been about a month since that post and I've made SOME progress, but not much.

Since my time is so tied up, I decided to release the pattern even though I have not finished it. I already have several other designs that I want to make, and I simply will not be able to make each one before posting the pattern. So I will be posting the free graphs with links to the written pattern on ETSY, and share my WIP with you and update the post as I complete the projects.

Here are the final images!

With this graph, you can make it in the colors listed, or exchange one for another. You could do a completely different color scheme and I'm sure it would look awesome! This is what it would look like with three shades of blue!

Materials needed to complete the blanket:

Size I Crochet Hook (5.5MM) (This is the set I use: Boye 6-Piece Aluminum Crochet Hook Set)
