I’m excited to share with you my first free C2C crochet graphgan pattern!

Although, being an advocate of the **corner to corner method**, I have never designed a color C2C square before.

When Helen from Sunflower Cottage Crochet offered me to take part in the **Community Garden Blanket Crochet-Along** I had to say yes and designed this Wheat Ears C2C crochet graphaghan square pattern.

This C2C square pattern is fun and easy, using only 2 colors so there are not too many yarn tails that get tangled while you work.

**20 Free ****C2C** **Crochet Graphgan Patterns **– Community Garden Blanket Crochet Along (CAL)

**C2C**

The **Community Garden Blanket Crochet Along** is a collaborative CAL hosted by Helen from Sunflower Cottage Crochet.

The blanket consists of 20 C2C squares, using the **classic C2C stitch**, each designed by a different designer with a garden theme in mind.

Each square is made of 25×25 C2C tiles, and when working with the recommended Worsted (#4) yarn, you get a 12″ (30.5 cm) square. When completing all the squares in this crochet along, you will get a 48×60″ (122×152 cm) throw blanket.

**What is a CAL and How Does it Work?**

**What is a CAL and How Does it Work?**

A CAL stands out for crochet along. Itโs an event where different crocheters around the world are working together on a pattern at the same time.

The pattern is released in parts, over a period of time. The **Community Garden Blanket** is a free crochet-along event that is held from September 2nd – October 14th, with 3 squares being released every week. Each new square release can be downloaded as a free PDF pattern for 24 hours, with the code you will find on the event page.

**The Wheat-Ears C2C Square PDF pattern was available for FREE on September 9th.If you missed the free PDF pattern, and looking for the charted pattern, you can find it in the full blanket eBook.**

**20 C2C Crochet Graphgan Square Patterns PDF**

If you missed some of the squares, or just want to skip the blog hoping and work on the blanket at your own pace, you can purchase all the 20 squares PDF patterns which **include both a graph and written instructions** at a discounted price as an **eBook** for only $12.99.

**What Yarn is Best for C2C Crochet Graphagan?**

The great thing about the C2C graphagan patterns, is that they are using the C2C stitch and basically almost all yarn types look good with this stitch.

You can use any kind of fiber you like, but I would use a yarn that is no thinner than a DK (#3) weight, especially if you are making this blanket, a Worsted (#4) yarn is recommended to achieve the finished size.

For her Allotment Garden Blanket, Helen used **Paintbox Simply Aran** Worsted (#4) yarn with a 5.0 mm/H crochet hook.

For my sample square, I also used a 5 mm hook with **Knit Picks – Wool of the Andes Superwash** yarn.

**How Much Yarn Do You Need For the C2C Blanket?**

For the **Community Garden Throw blanket**, Helen used a total of 19 skeins of **Paintbox Simply Aran** which is a total of 1,900gr/3,496m/3,819yds.

If we break it down to the colors she used, you need:

12 skeins (1,200gr/2,208m/2,412yds) of Champagne color

3 skeins (300gr/552m/603yds) of green

2 skeins (200gr/368m/402yds) of red

2 skeins (200gr/368m/402yds) of orange

Keep in mind that each square is made with different colors, you can use some leftover yarn from your stash, and keep the main color with the same yarn for consistency.

LouiseIn reading thru the pattern I noticed that Row #14 is missing. Is that intentional??

Thanks for the pattern.
