For my friends in other parts of the world, Summer is just around the corner with sunshine and BBQs.
They are packing away the Winter woollies just as I’m pulling them out here in Australia. It was seriously COLD this morning!
But whether it is cold or warming up, I still seem to have a crochet project on the go.
Crocheting a blanket in Winter is perfect for keeping me warm on the couch. But in Summer you can still crochet lighter projects.
When I saw this project I knew it would offer something for everyone. It is designed to be done in Summer cotton – great for those coming into warmer weather – but it could just as easily be created in a heavier yarn for those of us in the cold zone.
I found out about the Ideal Me 30 Day Crochet Challenge and I knew a lot of you would love the idea just as much as I do!
Brittany over at Ideal Me is hosting a month-long online crochet along challenge where you can learn to make a Corner To Corner (C2C) blanket.
It’s made in light squares so it’s the perfect crochet project for a hot summer, but I’ll be making mine in yarn here in Australia where it is getting colder.
What is C2C crochet?
C2C means corner to corner. You work each block of the blanket from one corner to the diagonal corner in rows. The stitches form small squares so the chart looks like a cross stitch chart. Each part of the blanket is crocheted in smaller individual squares before they’re all joined together to become one big, beautiful blanket.
I’ve been wanting to learn this method of crochet for a while now as I’ve seen lots of examples on social media.
The Challenge is finished but you can still learn to make this blanket here.
The reason I like it so much is that it’s part class, part challenge, and part community.
