Over the last few months, all I feel like I have crocheted have been baby blankets. And the stitch pattern I worked in for all of these has been corner to corner (C2C).

I fell in love with this stitch, it is another that looks complex, but is straightforward. It utilises double crochets, chaining and slip stitches. (Hint: even my 12 year old can do it!)

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to film a demonstration as my tripod for filming has been damaged by a child of mine. So for the moment, I have only a pattern to share with you for the Lagoon Baby Blanket. As soon as I can film again, I will have a couple of short demos on how to C2C- increase and decrease, but for now I highly recommend checking out either Makeanddocrew or 1dogwoof for great guides on how to C2C.

The Lagoon Baby Blanket is my first C2C pattern, and is available in a printable, PDF version through your preferred pattern retailer- LoveCrafts, Ravelry and Etsy for a small fee.

The Pattern

Step 1. Ch 6. dc into 4th ch from hook (counts as 2 dc). dc into next 2 ch. Turn. (1sq)

Step 2. Ch 6. dc into 4th ch from hook, dc into next 2 ch. sl st into 3 ch space at beginning of previous row. Ch 3, 3 x dc into same ch sp. sl st to next sq. Turn. (2 sq)

Step 3. Ch 6. dc into 4th ch from hook, dc into next 2 ch. sl st into 3 ch sp at beginning of previous row. Ch 3, 3 x dc into same ch sp. sl st into 3 ch sp at beginning of previous row. Ch 3, 3x dc into same ch sp. sl st to next sq. Turn. (3 sq)

Step 4. Ch 6. dc into 4th ch from hook, dc into next 2 ch. sl st into 3 ch sp at beginning of previous row. *Ch 3, 3 x dc into same ch sp. sl st to next sq. Repeat from * twice. Turn. (4 sq)

Step 5. Ch 6. dc into 4th ch from hook, dc into next 2 ch. *sl st into 3 ch sp at beginning of previous row. Ch 3, 3 x dc into same ch sp. sl st to next sq. Repeat from * three times. Turn. (5 sq)

I hope you enjoy making your own Lagoon Baby Blanket, and I can’t wait to be able to film some ‘how-to’ C2C videos for you.

I look forward to seeing your makes- tag @thetwistingtwine on Instagram to show off your finished project.

Happy Crocheting!

  1. The yarn that you used is gorgeous! It really is beautiful & your blanket is lovely. Where can the yarn be purchased at?

    1. Thank you so much! The yarn is gorgeous. There are a few suppliers in Australia (if that is where you’re based) or you can purchase direct from Garnmanufaktur. As I am based in Australia, I purchased mine through yarnmecalm.com.au, and another supplier in Australia is bellemaeyarns.com.au
      Tag @thetwistingtwine with your project- I’d love to see how you’re doing with it!
