Today I am sharing part 2 of our Sweet Lilac Crochet Along with you! If you are just joining us you can find out more info about this crochet along here. To sum it up, we are making a quilt inspired throw using a fun join as you go C2C technique.
Part of what makes doing a CAL fun is sharing with other crocheters who are also participating. I invite you to join my crochet group on Facebook, this is a great place to share your progress, ask questions and participate in other fun yarny shenanigans.
This blanket pattern assumes knowledge of the Corner to Corner (C2C) stitch. If you need a tutorial please check out this post.
The Crystal Star Block
This week’s square is called the Crystal Star Block. Isn’t it fun! Now completely by accident, this block and last week’s block have the same exact triangle pattern, just a different color layout.
So what does that mean? That means I did not make a new video tutorial since it would be the same (except a few color changes). Don’t worry though I have already started filming a tutorial for block #3.
You can watch last week’s video here. (Don’t forget to hit that like button and also subscribe to my channel, I’ll be adding a new video each week)

Let’s Get Started, here’s what you need:
-Your worsted weight yarn. I used 4 coordinating colors and my main color (white). Please feel free to use your scraps or stash for this project. Just be sure that your main color stays the same for the entire block. Also, the design will stand out more if there’s a high contrast between your main color and coordinating colors.
-scissors, tapestry needle
Guage: Each 7×7 c2c block should measure approx: 5 in square
You’ll also need the printable chart. Click on the picture below to download it.
If you want the line by line written instructions of the increases/decreases and color changes, you can purchase the ad-free pdf version of this pattern on Ravelry. It’s only $5 and I will update the pattern as each new square is released.
