Gather Your Supplies…

For this project, we’ll use Paintbox Simply Aran yarn. It’s perfect for this colorful corner to corner baby blanket because it is available in so many different colors. The sky is the limit here!

To finish, you’ll need 9 skeins of Paintbox yarn. Five skeins should be your main color (shown in white here) and the remaining four skeins should be your contrast colors (one skein of each).

To get a gradient effect in your blanket, I recommend using analogous colors (colors that are next to each other) on the color wheel. You can learn more about color theory and how to use it to plan colors in your projects here.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Pattern Notes

Baby Brights Corner to Corner (C2C) Baby Blanket | Free Crochet Pattern from B.Hooked!

This corner to corner baby blanket starts at one corner and uses alternating color changes to create diagonal stripes.

Carry the yarn between the contrast color and main color to reduce the number of ends to weave in. I found it worked best to do this when working double crochets into the chains at the beginning of increase rows and by holding the two strands together (working and non-working) for slipped stitches on the decreasing rows. Alternatively, you can fasten off at the end of each color transition and attach the new color when indicated.

The border is worked last. After the first border round, the ribbed look is achieved by working in short rows and slip stitching it to the blanket as you go.

Color Key:

  • Color A – Raspberry Pink
  • Color B – Lipstick Pink
  • Color C – Blood Orange
  • Color D – Seville Orange
  • Color E (Main Color) – Paper White
