I introduce to you the Chic Sheep Day Dream Blanket. This is a FREE beginner friendly crochet corner to corner blanket using Chic Sheep by Marly Bird™. After receiving so much love for the Chic Sheep Dream Blanket I knew that I needed to design something for the crochet lovers. Because the first Chic Sheep Blanket used all 24 colors of the Chic Sheep line I had my work cut out for me to make the perfect counter part, and I think I succeeded.

Chic Sheep by Marly Bird™
Having my own yarn line has always been my dream. When Red Heart gave me the opportunity for that dream to come true I was elated. Now that I have my dream I wanted to make your crochet dreams come true with this beautiful corner-2-corner heirloom blanket. Choose the color place of your choice, or use the pattern I used, and play around with all 24 colors of Chic Sheep by Marly Bird™.
Chic Sheep by Marly Bird™ is 100% Merino Wool. This means that it is machine washable and dryer safe! Not only is it easy to maintain but it is an absolute dream to use in accessories and garments. Having this yearn snuggled up against your skin feels so good. Using this yarn to make a blanket was a no brainer.
FREE Beginner Corner to Corner Crochet Blanket (C2C)
This blanket is worked in a diagonal fashion from corner to corner. If you haven’t worked a corner to corner crochet blanket before I have the video tutorials to help you get started.
Many of the corner to corner crochet patterns that you find will be done with double crochet. While this is a fine way of working the technique I always prefer to work in a half double crochet. I feel that this tightens up the stitch and keeps a sold block. These video tutorials will show you how to work the C2C technique using half double crochet stitches BUT the technique is EXACTLY the same if you are using double crochet stitches.
You can learn the basics of the corner to corner technique with my FREE Snowflake Blanket C2C tutorials and the following video tutorials:
- Crochet Corner to Corner Square in Half Double Crochet
- How to Crochet Half Double Crochet Corner to Corner Rectangle
- Crochet Corner to Corner Snowflake Blanket
I must warn you now. While using 24 different colors there will be MANY yarn ends to weave in; you may want to weave some in as you go.
