Our block today is called the Flying Geese Block. We are on block #5 of the Sweet Lilac Corner to Corner Throw Crochet Along (that’s a mouthful!). This unique blanket uses a joining as you go corner to corner technique. 

Find more information about this CAL here. 

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

Flying Geese are another classic quilting technique! Don’t you think the colored triangles look like the V’s geese fly in. There are so many ways to arrange these squares.

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 HERE 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.
