ANCHOR C2C Graphghan

Here’s my spin on the corner to corner crochet Anchor Baby Blanket by Coffee and Crochet Goals. This was a very quick and easy crochet project I enjoyed and I know the recipient’s mother is going to be overjoyed when she see it. The funny thing is I made a crochet blank for her first child 14 years ago and now I am making another one for her last child.

Update: when the mother received the graphghan, the first thing she said was I still have the first blanket you made!!!! (you all know that warmed my heart)

ANCHOR OF LOVE

CROCHET PATTERN REVIEW

Pattern: https://coffeeandcrochetgoals.com/2018/07/17/anchor-baby-blanket/

An easy and free C2C crochet nautical inspired baby blanket.
Original graphghan from Coffee & Crochet Goals

Pattern Description:  Corner 2 corner crochet graphghan

Pattern Sizing: 32 in x 32 in with shell, but mine finished at 36 x 36 . Perfect size for a baby crib or carrier cover.

Did it look like the photo/drawing once you were done?  Yes it did even though I used different colors, and expanded the boarder

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes this is a super simple pattern.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love that the pattern came as a graph I was able to print out and actually see the blocks. If I had to choose a dislike for this pattern it would be I could not tell the front from the back without a crochet maker. I highly recommend using them for this project.

Yarn Used:  This year I am stash busting, so I used what was in my inventory. I used the Red Heart brand. I find that Red Heart and I Love Yarn are similar in weight, so I would follow the recommendations of the pattern.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Besides the colors, I change the crochet style of the boarders and added a few extra rows. Also I used a size I crochet hook. The stitches were neat and tight even after washing the completed project.

Would you crochet it again? YES I WILL. 

Would you recommend it to others? Yes; Coffee & Crochet Goals did an excellent job creating this pattern.

SUPPLIES I USED:

  • Color #1: 2 skein of Cherry Red by Red Heart Super Saver
  • Color #2: 2 skeins of Shaded Dusk by Red Heart Super Saver (this color is hard to find in the stores now, you may have to order online).
  • Color #3: 1 skein of Soft Navy by Red Heart Super Saver
  • Size I crochet hook
  • Pattern graph
  • Scissors/Snippers
  • Tapestry needle

Until next time….Happy Sewing and Creating,
