I’ve been a little absent lately from social media and the blog (and crocheting in general) because I’ve been a bit swamped at work. I’ve also been working on a little project that I can’t tell you about (I’ve already said too much!), which has been taking up my time.
But! I did manage to finish up this sweet throw blanket last week, which was such an enjoyable, relaxing project and exactly what I needed. So I thought I’d pop in and show you the finished result.
It is a super simple corner-to-corner blanket made using Bernat Baby Bundle yarn. It’s a yarn that is made up of four different types of yarn, giving the finished blanket a really fun texture and look. It is super squishy (perfect for babies, as advertised!) and really soft with beautiful drape. I was afraid the C2C stitch would be too dense, causing the blanket to be a bit stiff, but it isn’t at all.
The colours reminded me of a day at the beach, hence the name! And there are lots of other beautiful colourways in this yarn as well (the Bernat Home Bundle yarn is similar and has lovely colourways as well).
I wanted to make a decent sized throw but also wanted to make sure I didn’t go over the 3 skeins I had bought, so I estimated about how big I thought I could make it and went for it. It ended up being bit of a game of yarn chicken (there was some stress toward the end, let me tell ya) but I was able to finish the blanket by the skin of my teeth with just a small ball of leftovers (definitely not enough for another row if I had opted to make it even slightly bigger, so yay!). The blanket is 28×28 .
I didn’t add a border because of my yarn limitations (I do like the clean edges and simplicity of the C2C as well!), but if you buy an extra skein, I think a border would look really great on this blanket and would also add to the size.
I have added a PDF below of the graph with the blocks and numbered rows if you happen to prefer graphs for C2C!
Feel free to pin for later!
Here’s what I used:
- 9.0mm hook;
- Bernat Baby Bundle in Aqua Nest (750g/three 250g skeins)

The beautiful thing about this yarn is that is creates the beautiful and interesting colour pattern all by itself, without having to deal with any colour-changes! Just keep crocheting along and the yarn will do all the work.
Be back soon with a new pattern!
