Who loves watermelons in summertime? I certainly do! Summertime has all the retail stores displaying watermelons on everything. When I first started crocheting one of my first projects was a watermelon zipper pouch. Today I want to share my easy Crocheted Watermelon C2C Baby Blanket. Crocheted corner to corner is a very easy way to create a beautiful texture and works up quickly.
Watermelons and crochet go very well together. In the pattern for a Crocheted Watermelon C2C Baby Blanket you need to have knowledge of how to create a corner to corner stitch. If you are new to crochet C2C, ChiWei at www.1dogwolf.com has an excellent blog post with helpful information to answer questions about C2C crochet. This is simple work up of a square and then a border added. I’ve included a chart as a visual to help with row count.

CH = Chain

DC = Double Crochet Reverse
SC = Crab Crochet Stitch
SL ST = Slip Stitch
The completed blanket is 36 inches by 36 inches and weighs 16 oz.
To create main part of blanket, start a corner to corner and work until you have 34 rows. On the next row start you decreasing. You will have 34 clusters on the right/left side and 34 clusters on the top/bottom. I’ve included a chair in Materials sections as a reference.
Row 1: Attach white yarn in gap between clusters. CH 3, SC in next gap between clusters, CH 2 and SC in next gap between clusters. Repeat this around with SC, CH 1, SC in corners. SL ST to 1st CH of original CH 3.
Row 2: CH 2, DC 2 in CH 2 space below. DC in next stitch and DC 2 in CH 2 space. Repeat this around with DC, CH 1, DC in corners. SL ST to CH 2 and leave a tail for sewing in. Fasten off.
Row 3: Attach green yarn, CH 2. DC in each stitch around with DC, CH 1, DC in corners. SL ST to CH 2.
Row 4: CH 1, SC all around with SC, CH 1, SC in corners. SL ST to CH 1.
Row 5: CH 1, Crab Stitch around complete blanket and stop at very last stitch. Pull a tail through and fasten off. To make an invisible join use tapestry needle and weave end behind first stitch. Then sew in.
