This C2C (corner-to-corner) blanket by Maria’s Blue Crayon is great for beginners who want to learn or practice making a blanket using the C2C crochet method. Rather than the usual blocky crochet pattern used on most C2C blankets, this pattern utilized silt stitch.

Silt stitch creates a unique texture and look, giving you an extra edge when making a C2C blanket. The pattern is flexible, allowing you to make the blanket as large or as small as you want. Give this one a try and see how you like it!

Ah, the granny square blanket. Every crocheter needs to make one at least once. It’s a canon event.

This Polka Dottie Granny Blanket was the first granny square blanket I ever made. I’m actually not sure if it was this exact free crochet blanket pattern, but it’s pretty much the same. This pattern is chic, retro, and fun.

This is a great project for beginner crocheters who want a more intensive project. You have to make a ton of these circular granny squares, so you practice working in the round, color changes, and joining methods.
