Bright Lines Blanket

Who doesn’t love a bright blanket?

I certainly do, and this one is just that. I made it with a lot of left over yarn from my stash.

It’s a great “non-thinking project” when you get your head around C2C, which if you aren’t familiar with – check out my handy video here.

The best way to think of C2C is, if you want a blanket that looks super complicated, as it’s diagonal lines, but is actually super simple – then head for C2C!

It’s worked on the diagonal, so even though the stripes look very impressive – you are actually just working one line of the blanket.

Pattern

You will need approximately 1-2 balls of each colour

I used Turquoise, pink, lime green and white. (If you want to buy new yarn – head over here and buy: 1 ball white, and 2 of Pink, Turquoise and green – I can highly recommend Scheepjes Color Crafter.

Size – your finished blanket will measure 36 inches x 36 inches

To Make

Use the normal (USA) DC Method, of chaining 6, work one DC in the 4th Chain from the hook, and 1 more in each further chain (= 1 block).

Row 2: Chain 6, work one DC in the 4th Chain from the hook, and 1 more in each further chain. SS to the Chain 3 gap made above (from the ch6), and then make 3 further DC in this gap. (2 Block) – If I’ve confused you – watch the video above)

Continue increasing as per the chart below:

To decrease, make the final square of row 47 in pink as normal.

Now, SS back over the block to the chain 3 gap, and ch3, 3 dc in the gap (NO CHAIN 6), then continue the row, decreasing the other end too

It looks complicated – but it isn’t!

Start at the bottom right corner and make:

4 rows green

2 rows white

3 rows pink

4 rows bllue

4 rows green

4 rows blue

2 rows white

6 rows pink

3 rows white

4 rows green

6 rows blue

2 rows white

3 rows pink (Note this is the corner of the chart, so you are reducing on row 3 of the pink, and starting to make your blanket smaller).

Here you go, one finished blanket, which is kind of an optical illusion!

You can if you want to add a border, I did, or USA SC all the way around, but it looks just a good left alone.
