Today I am sharing part 3 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

Windblown Block

This week’s square is called the Windblown block. I love the movement in this one! I filmed a brand new tutorial for you this week too.

I hope by now this technique is feeling a little bit easier for you, I know it is challenging.

Sweet Lilac CAL part 3! Learn a really fun and challenging join as you go corner to corner technique and make a quilt inspired crochet blanket in the process.

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.

-5mm hook

-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. 

Starting Method and direction For Each Block

Note: place a stitch marker on block number 1 once it’s in position to start block 2. This will mark the “front” side. All blocks start on the front side.
