Materials:
  • I (5.5 mm) crochet hook 
  • 4 cakes of Fleece Hugs by Red Heart, each is 415 yards (I used the "Lilies" colorway) *Note: I removed the green sections of each of my cakes.  If you use 4 entire cakes, your blanket might be a little larger than mine!
  • Tapestry Needle 
  • Scissors 
  • Tape Measure
Sizing:
  • 60 inches wide
  • 60 inches tall
Wondering what size to make your blanket?  Here is a handy chart of blanket sizes to get you started!  Note: This blanket is square, and most of the sizes on this chart are rectangles, but it still will give you a good idea.

Instructions For C2C Increase Portion:


Chain 6, then work a sl st into the furthest ch from the hook to create a ring.

Row 1: Ch 4 (counts as a dc, ch 1), then work 3 dc into the ring.  Then ch 1, then work a dc into the center of the ring.

Row 2: Ch 4, then work (3 dc, ch 1) into the first ch 1 space of the row.  Work (3 dc, ch 1, 1 dc) into the last ch 1 space of the row.

Row 3: Ch 4, then work (3 dc, ch 1) into the first ch 1 space of the row.  Work (3 dc, ch 1) into each ch 1 space across.  Then work (3 dc, ch 1, 1 dc) into the last ch 1 space of the row.

Repeat row 3 until your blanket is roughly half the size you'd like it to be (or you've used half of your yarn), then continue onto the next section to begin the decrease part.

Important!  Be sure the number of rows for your increase is an EVEN number before you begin the decrease.  I worked a total of 52 rows before decreasing.

Instructions for C2C Decrease Portion:

Row 1: Ch 4, then skip the first ch 1 space.  Work (3 dc, ch 1) in each ch 1 space across until just before the last space (turning chain space).  Instead of working into this space, work a dc into the top chain of the turning chain.

Repeat row 1 of the decrease until just a top point remains.  Fasten off and weave in ends that remain.  Note: if the top is challenging for you, be sure to check out the video for this part (or any other part) to see me walk through it step by step!

Weave in any ends that remain and you're finished!
