This Ombre Ocean Corner to Corner Afghan will make you feel as if you're relaxing on the beach soaking up the sun or swimming in the ocean as the waves softly move around you. Corner to corner or C2C crochet is a favorite amongst crocheters because you work from one side to the other in a seamless fashion.

This ombre pattern is particularly beautiful, with several shades of blue forming stripes as the blanket expands. It has a nautical feel but can be crocheted in any color combinations to achieve different looks.

Instructions for THROW:

Note: Blanket is worked in a diagonal from corner to corner.

  1. Ch 6.

    Row 1 (right side): Dc in 4th ch from hook, 1 dc in each of next 2 ch; turn – 1 cluster.
    Row 2 (wrong side): Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch (1 cluster made), (slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) in ch-3 space of previous row (1 cluster made); turn – 2 clusters.
    Row 3: Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch, *(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) in ch-3 space of previous row; repeat from * across; turn – 3 clusters.
    Row 4: Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch, *(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) in ch-3 space of previous row; repeat from * across; turn, – 4 clusters.

    Continue in this way, increasing one block on each row through Row 50 – 50 clusters across. Place a st marker in the corner to mark beginning of edging.

    Shaping Corners
    Note: For Rows 51-61, you will create the rectangle shape by only increasing on one side of the throw. For Rows 62-110, you will decrease one cluster in each row.

    Row 51: Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch, *(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) in next ch-3 space of previous row; repeat from * across to last cluster, slip st in ch-3 space of last cluster; turn – 50 clusters.
    Row 52: Slip st across first 3 dc to ch-3 space of previous row, *(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) in ch-3 space of previous row; repeat from * across; turn, – 50 clusters.
    Rows 53-60: Repeat Rows 51-52.
    Row 61: Repeat Row 51.
    Rows 62-110: Repeat Row 52, decreasing 1 cluster at the beginning of every row until 1 cluster remains.
    Fasten off.

    Border
    Notes: Work along top edge and one side edge only for Round 1. Place st marker in corners for all rounds, moving marker as you work.
    Round 1: Attach yarn with slip st to base of ch-3 at corner of Row 50 where st marker was placed; *ch 3, slip st in between next cluster**; repeat from * to ** across top to corner, slip st in top of last dc of previous row cluster (50 ch-3 spaces); repeat from * to ** along side, ending with ch 2, 1 hdc in top of dc from previous row (61 ch-3 spaces) – 222 total ch-3 spaces.
    Round 2: (Ch 1, sc) in same space, (ch 4, sc) in next ch-3 space, [*(ch 3, sc) in next ch-3 space; repeat from * to corner, (ch 4, sc) in next ch-3 space] 4 times to last corner, ending with (ch 2, hdc) in beginning sc – 218 ch-3 spaces, four ch-4 corner spaces.

I would always see this pattern all over the crochet world but I haven't really embarked on doing the project. This is one pattern I'd love to do, though because it deviates from the usual pattern that normally starts horizontally or vertically. This Ombre Ocean Corner to Corner Afghan's total look is so stunning, enhanced by the blue monochromatic design used in this beautiful project. This afghan will be great for personal use, or as a housewarming gift. It will be a great conversation piece. Thanks for the pattern. Cheers!

I have a definite liking for corner to corner throws and afghan and this one is lovely do a definite must make for me. Although I love blue it is not my favorite winter color so I will be changing the shades but, other than that, the pattern is gorgeous and it looks cuddly enough to snuggle under on the sofa on a chilly wintry night!

This afghan has a very peaceful look about it. I'm a fan!
