FREE Crochet C2C Baby Blanket Pattern {Free Crochet Baby Blanket Patterns}

FREE Crochet Pattern-Baby Blanket-Textured crrochet stitches-Balnket Pattern with the Corner to Corner Stitch Beautiful Textured Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern with the Corner to Corner Stitch. If you are looking for a Beautiful Textured Crochet Blanket Pattern, to create a vintage looking pram or cot blanket then why not try the very easy Corner to Corner Stitch. The Diagonal blocks make a stunning effect.
I made this pram blanket for a friend and it was my first attempt at the C2C.
 If like me you get a bit bored with bigger projects, this is perfect. As when you get halfway you start decreasing the stitches and before you know it your finished the blanket.

Please READ through all this pattern before commencing. I have tried to write it out so it is easy if this is your first attempt at a Corner to Corner. 

Once you master the sides, and making the first blocks of the rows then the rest whips up really easily. Watch the video to see how to do this easy diagonal stitch.


To make my Vintage Style Baby Blanket 
I followed this Corner to Corner pattern here (I chose 1 main color,)

When you have reached your desired length. to make rectangle you are ONLY going to increace on one side this is to make the width now stay the same and the length grow. 
Continue working with increacing 1 block ONLY on one side. At the width side we are not increacing, continue INCREACing Right Side of Work by working the 6 chain. combination. 
when we get to the end of the round we will slip st across first 3 dc, {(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) =DECREACE} all in next ch-3 space of previous row; 
work in blocks along to the end of work.  

Continue making increace until your happy with your length (I made 42 blocks length wise for Pram Blanket in Picture)
Now work in
decreasing
rows as follows: slip st across first 3 dc, * (slip st, ch 3,3 dc) all in next ch-3 space of previous row; repeat from *to last ch-3 space; slip st in last space;
turn
do NOT make any further blocks WORKING (slip stitch, chains 3dc) at EACH ends from now on, 

The work now get easier as you are decreacing at both sides now until
1 block remains. 
Fasten off.

Border: 
You can choose any border you like to finish off this blanket, 
Round 1
Join Yarn and Chain3. 
I worked in Double Crochet around the full width and length with 3DC in each corner. So I coudl thread Ribbon through the blanket. 
And the last round was
(SC, Dc in same stitch Chain3, skip 1) continue working this around, Fasten off and finish blanket 
As it is a Pram Blanket I like to wash first and block. 
then with Ribbon by threading through the posts of every second DC of previous round.
