Peter Rabbit Baby Blue Blanket

I’ve always loved seeing corner to corner crochet. C2C crochet has such a beautiful look to it. But I’ll be honest, it intimidated me at first.

But the more I looked into it, the more I realized that it is actually incredibly easy! You only need to know 3 stitches in order to make a C2C crochet blanket: chain, double crochet, and slip stitch. Easy, right?! If you’re new to C2C and would like a tutorial, check this one out by Make and Do Crew.

Now, if you’ve been reading my blog these last couple months, you know that I am expecting a baby in September. So naturally, I’d like to make a baby blanket for my sweet baby. The only problem is that we don’t know the sex.

I know, I know…I could just make one gender neutral blanket and call it good. But where’s the fun in that?! So, I’ve decided to make a blanket for if we have a boy and a blanket for if we have a girl! C2C was necessary for at least one of them, I’d say.
