This might be the fastest, most cozy blanket that you have ever crocheted! And you’re going to love it’s corner to corner (C2C) design!
A little while ago, while shopping at my local craft store, I came across a 35 mm crochet hook! I couldn’t resist, and then, naturally, had to buy the yarn to go with it.
A few years ago now I started seeing blankets made with a jumbo weight yarn. I was instantly drawn to them! I love the boldness of them and the chunky texture, not to mention how cozy they looked!
I knew the roving wool yarns would not be a good match for my household though with four young kids and an energetic dog also calling it home. But I was quite excited when I discovered the Bernat Blanket Big yarn at my local Michaels store.
Bernat Blanket Big:
The Bernat Blanket Big yarn is a 100% polyester yarn which means I can wash and dry as needed. And I don’t have to worry about it fraying!
The Two Hour C2C Throw is an easy design. The final blanket measures approximately 54 x 54 inches, although with more yarn you can make it as big as you would like!
The design is made up of single crochet stitches that are worked in the back loop only.
For the decrease rows you will need to work single crochet two and three stitches together.
The end result is so cozy!

Greetings! Regarding your BEAUTIFUL C2C Crochet Blanket, I would I change color? I absolutely love the design! Also, I could not get my hands on the Bernat Big, so I am using Red Heart Irresistable ( also a Super Chunky-7 on an “irresistable” sale!) with a 25 mm hook (35 mm next time!). I hope that this does not change things too much? Thank-you for your help!
It doesn’t too much! Just continue your increase rows until it’s the desired size 🙂
thank-you for the reply! Is there something that I do differently because it is C2C to change colors?
How many balls would you say are needed for the edge, if I wanted to do a contrast color?
I honestly can’t remember if it was one or two!
Cool, cool! But you think not more than two? 🙂

Hi Sarah, love your work, thank you! Just a comment. I assume this pattern is entirely blo, but in the instructions, it does not say blo in the decreasing rows? Why would we switch from blo in the decreasing rows? Thank you, Derrie
Amy Richards says
What is the stitch pattern repeat if I’m wanting to change the blanket dimensions?
For this pattern you will keep working the increase rows until you reach the desired width, then start the decrease rows
Hi Sarah…My grandkids just gave me some jumbo #7 yarn for my birthday. I found your 2 hour C2C blanket pattern and fell in love with it (I love doing C2C)! However, finding a 35 mm hook is a challenge! You mentioned that you got yours at your local craft store. Could I get the name and email address of the store? I would like to ask them if they still have these hooks and if I could order one from them. I’d rather shop Canadian if possible than shop Amazon!! Thank you so much for this pattern…and all your other patterns, blog posts and YouTubes. Take care…Brenda
Hello! Yes! I purchased mine at Michaels. You may be able to find it online

Hi Brenda, I know you asked Sarah, but I got mine at Michael’s. I also have one from WeCrochet from “The Hook Nook.” I ordered that one.
Hi Sarah! My son has asked me to crochet a blanket for his dorm room bed and picked your pattern! However, since I need it to be twin size, I’m trying to figure out how to change it from a square to a rectangle. Any advice on how to do this? I’m a fairly new crocheter so I’m not sure how to make the conversion! Thanks in advance for your help!!
