Free (Not A)Pattern: C2C Cupcake Throw

As of this morning, I officially have NO active projects. Old WIPS don’t count, by the way. I finished my C2C blanket for a friend, and it looks AWESOME! The only thing left to do is wash it and mail it! Since learning the C2C technique back in April, this is my 3rd throw/blanket. It was really fun; this will definitely not be my last!

As stated above, I don’t really consider this an official pattern. More of a guide to how I worked this project. I used the yarn (DK weight) held double and a larger hook than recommended (6.0 mm) on the ballband. I included the amount of increases, straight rows, and decrease rows; literally to take the guess work out of this project for you. I had 0.8 oz , about 89 yards remaining from each ball. Your yarn mileage may vary from mine depending on how you crochet.

How I Made My C2C Throw (not a real pattern):

8 balls of Lion Brand Cupcake Yarn in Sea Breeze (approx 4720 yards total)
Size J hook (6.0mm)
Other Notions: Yarn Needle to weave in ends.
Optional Notions:Stitch Markers to keep track of rows.

Dimensions: 45×57

WITH YARN HELD DOUBLE (throughout the entire project)

55 rows of C2C increase
17 rows no increase or decrease
55 rows of C2C decrease.

Weave in all ends. I recommend washing before use, big pieces like this get unwieldy and tend to pick up detritus.

Don’t know how to do C2C? No worries, I got you covered:

This is my favorite C2C tutorial: Winding Road Crochet
It has text, pictures, charts, AND videos. It also has left-handed directions!
Be advised, there is a LOT of information, and not necessarily in the order you will need it in for this throw. I think its increase, decrease, “straight” (no increase or decrease)
This site also has instructions on how to put on a border- I thought my blanket looked fine without the border (as did my spouse). You may have different opinions for yours. A border will require additional yarn!

Using 2 balls held together really helped blend the color changes!
