Surprise a loved one with this darling Striped Corner-to-Corner Crochet Afghan. If you are unfamiliar with corner-to-corner patterns, you will love that a series of increases and decreases helps this style of crochet afghan to work up very quickly. This patterns features alternating colors for a festive twist on a solid-colored blanket. We love the combination of white and blue, but you can use any color scheme you prefer. Pompoms on each corner add some extra flair and trendiness to this soft and snuggly blanket.

Can this be made with a J needle?

Using a J hook with DK will result in a blanket that is very loosely made and full of holes. You can do it, but I am not sure you will like it. You could change the yarn weight to worsted or aran and that would work with a J hook, but it would definitely result in a larger blanket.
