You told us you wanted free crochet patterns which were still a bit girly, modern, fashionable and totally cute, and something they would actually wear.

FREE Crochet C2C Baby Blanket Pattern A Free Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern

FREE Crochet Pattern-Baby Blanket-Textured crrochet stitches-Balnket Pattern with the Corner to Corner Stitch Free baby blanket Crochet Pattern. 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. I found I need the WRitten Pattern for the C2C but I have also included a handy video from @The Crochet Crowd.
 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,) 

FREE written Crochet Pattern for the Corner to Corner stitch
I used a 4.00mm hook 4 x 100 gram balls of Double Knit Yarn = worsted)

ch 6.
Row 1 (Right Side):
Dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch
turn {1 block made}
Row 2:
Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch, (slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in ch-3 space of previous row
turn {2 blocks made}

Row 3:
Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch, [(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in next ch-3 space of previous row] twice; turn  {3 blocks made}
Row 4:
Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch, [(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in next ch-3 space of previous row]3 times turn  {4 blocks made}.
Continue working like this, 5 blocks, 6 blocks, 7 blocks......keep increasing 1 block on each row until there are 34 blocks across (or as WIDE as you want the blanket to be)

When you have reached your desired length. to make rectangle you are ONLY going to increase on one side this is to make the width now stay the same and the length grow. 
Continue working with increasing 1 block ONLY on one side. At the width side we are not increasing, continue Increasing 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) =DECREASE} all in next ch-3 space of previous row; 
work in blocks along to the end of work.  

Continue making increase 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 decreasing 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 could 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.
