Border for C2C Blanket Ideas and Free Crochet Patterns

C2C Border Ideas

It’s time to build your crochet chops.

While seasonal projects are all fine and dandy, it’s the general use, staple techniques that make or break the crocheter. Therefore, it’s always a good idea to learn and practice useful stitches. To this end, here are some borders for C2C blanket projects. C2C is a wonderful way of building up large projects with geometric designs. Overall, even though you do this manually it’s almost a digital way of crocheting. However, these projects need a great finish to be truly complete. This is best done by a great border. Better still, these edges can also match other projects as well, giving you possibility to versify your projects.

To begin with, this C2C blanket is a classic updated with a fun, rainbow pastel design. However, the real coup de grace is the tight, dense border with a crisp edge.
