I don’t know about you, but I am a sugar-holic.  It’s not popular to love sugar as much as I do, but chocolate…I eat it everyday!

As a child, I remember my mother in the kitchen, making fudge, chocolate chip cookies, bourbon balls, and so much more.  The day I learned to make fudge from scratch was a beautiful moment. 

As an adult, she would spend weeks baking all kinds of sweet treats for the holidays.  Sugar cookies with beautiful colorful frosting.  She would pack it all up in those giant tins filled with tissue paper and give them as gifts every year.  I looked forward to it and of course, my daughter and I would eat it all with a quickness.

There is just something so endearing about candy and childhood memories. Cotton candy at the fair, gumball machines, gummy bears, donuts, cupcakes…GAH!  My mouth is watering.  So, my grandson has already claimed the sweet treats crochet C2C Crochet Blanket!  I showed him pictures and he was like… “That’s mine!” LOL.

Malena Straight of Straight Hooked finished her blanket this week – how exciting to see it all come together!

Sweet Treats Crochet Along 2022 Details

What is a Crochet Along you say?

If you aren’t familiar with a CAL, it means crochet along…okay, so what’s that?

Crochet alongs are where a bunch of wonderful makers like yourself get together and crochet the squares as a group.  We share our work as we go along, as questions, and most importantly…have fun!

A new pattern will premiere every Friday, and we try to keep the same pace as we crochet the blanket together.

How the Sweet Treats C2C Crochet Blanket Pattern Crochet Along works.

The Sweet Treats C2C Crochet Blanket Pattern Crochet Along starts January 28th and runs through April 22.  We have 8 designers including myself releasing new C2C crochet pattern squares each Friday, starting January 28th

This will give everyone a week to finish each square, with plenty of time to weave in your tails, block it, and get ready for the next square.

There are two weeks at the end of the CAL for working the borders and one week to post your finished blanket for the contests!

The blog hop is started!

So glad you’re here! You’re going to love this C2C Crochet Blanket Pattern!

How big will my blanket be?

I get this question a lot and that is why I created an awesome C2C crochet calculator that will determine how big each square will be.  So far, mine are measuring around 15” using a 5.5 mm crochet hook (Bates style) and Brava Worsted weight yarn.

I use Mini C2C to create the squares in my blanket, if you are not familiar with this method of C2C, check out this article on How to Mini-C2C,  I wrote when I was a blogger at Happily Hooked magazine (highly recommend subscribing to this magazine btw).

The Yarn.

Thanks to We Crochet for providing the yarn for the Sweet Treats CAL Free C2C Crochet Blanket Pattern!  When we were choosing colors for the blanket, I fell in love with the speckled yarn.  There are quite a few colors to choose from for this blanket, but don’t worry!  You can use yarn from your stash.

The Sweet Treats blankets uses a variety of colors, but you’re welcome to mix it up!  Choose colors that call to you.  It’s okay to get creative!

The yarn for this CAL is gifted to us by We Crochet – it is Brava Worsted.  It has a nice texture and is so easy to work with.  There are over 30 colors to choose from including those fabulous speckled colorways I mentioned above.

The Yardage

Grab your colors prior to the CAL, but if you don’t get them in time, not to worry because the CAL is running through April 29th!  You have plenty of time…don’t sweat it.

Brava Worsted Weight Yarn or any worsted weight yarn you choose.  The C2C calculator will help you determine the size of your squares easily.

The yardage will vary because of a few factors, like the hook size, tension, and the weight of yarn.  If you use the recommended yarn and hook size, you will need the following amount of skeins to complete it.  Using a 5.5 mm hook and a worsted weight yarn.

1 block of my C2C stitch measured around 14”.  I did a little math…and this is what I came up with.  This may vary depending on your tension.

What is C2C?

C2C means corner-to-corner.  You are working each square from the bottom right size diagonally to the top left side.  If you are not familiar with C2C, please refer to my post called C2C Basics to get familiar with this fun crochet technique.

  1. I’ve been following along just fine until today. My computer, not a phone, can’t load todays stuff because there are so many video ads playing at least 4 at the same time. I understand the need for ads but when I can’t view the page for them it is too much.

    • I’m sorry about that. I’m not sure why it would do that. I made some setting changes. Hopefully that fixed the problem.
