Boxed Up C2C Blanket - FREE GRAPH

Geometric designs just HAVE MY HEART. I love the simplicity of the design even though it LOOKS complicated. I just love it! This design is a variation of my CORNERED blanket design, that I just could not get out of my head! If I move the lines this way or that... what will it look like? What if I flip this part, would that look good? But seriously, I scored with this design. It came together so nicely (actually a lot better than I imagined it would), and I am so excited to share this design with you.

Cornered C2C Blanket - FREE GRAPH

Here we have a REALLY FUN geometric design. I've been playing around a lot with stripes and I've loved every design I came up with. The inspiration for this one came from the Crossroads C2C Blanket when I decided to change it up to a two-toned design and I F.E.L.L. I.N. L.O.V.E. Each stripe can be completed with one bobbin so it wouldn't be too hard to prep for what looks like a complicated design. I may even make this our next CAL project! I seriously love it that much, guys! I hope you like it too!

Fading Chevron C2C Blanket - FREE GRAPH

My Fading Diamonds C2C Blanket is one of my more popular C2C patterns on my website. So I thought it might be fun to combine the fading feature with a different pattern. So I combined it with the chevron zig zag to get this design result! I really liked how it turned out, so I hope you enjoy it!

Ascend C2C Blanket - FREE GRAPH

Here is a really fun geometric design that points you upwards! The colors here are SO FUN and bright. I love geometric designs because they look so clean and organized. Initially, I had a hard time deciding the middle color for the triangles. I thought about using white or gray instead, but I finally decided to use a peach instead, and I am thrilled with the way the colors look together!

Joy C2C Throw Blanket - FREE GRAPH

This is probably going to be my last Christmas design published in 2019. I can't believe 2020 is just around the corner! I have had such a great year growing this blog and designing crochet patterns... and I have BIG goals and NEW ideas for next year!
To wrap up this Christmas season, I've got this lovely design inspired by a pillow I saw in the store. The pillow was actually more realistic, which is hard to do in C2C, so I simplified the design and I just LOOOOOVE the calligraphy in the middle. The simplicity of JOY! I hope you enjoy this design!

Snowy Tree C2C Blanket - FREE GRAPH

My friends! Were you hit with tons of snow this last Thanksgiving week? I live in San Diego, so where we live we only had to endure a chilly 50 degree high on Thanksgiving Day. It was tough, but we survived! HAHA! I know cities in the mountains here got lots of snow. I can't really handle the cold, so I stay home wrapped up in my warm blanket and crochet!
This new design was a fun one to put together in honor of this last week's snowfall. Introducing the Snowy Tree C2C blanket!

Crochet Christmas Tree - FREE PATTERN LINKS

Okay, so I am prepping for my first ever market, and I wanted to make some kind of festive home decor to go with my other accessories I'll have for sale. So I looked up on Pinterest to find some cute Christmas tree designs, and found a few free patterns for this Bobble Christmas Tree!

This is a free video I originally encountered. What a great tutorial to help you make the tree!



This video uses bobbles, and makes a separate bottom piece that you attach at the end.


Here you can find the link to a free pattern by the Simply Crochet Magazine in the UK. The pattern is written in UK terms, so if you are a US crocheter, like myself, then dc is a single crochet, and tr is a double crochet. This pattern also uses popcorn stitches instead of bobbles. Other than that, the pattern is very easy to follow... except that it is a hollow tree. So I did some modifications to extend the pattern to make a larger tree and close the bottom.

This is how mine turned out:

Don't you think they look lovely! Here are the instructions to make ones like mine!
