This is a free crochet along pattern for creating the Alphabet & Numbers C2C Blanket. The complete pattern can be found below. Photos and a video tutorial are also included.
It’s been so long since I hosted an amazing Crochet Along. I believe my last one was the Bobble Basketweave Bag. Oh, that was a fun one and also super popular. Even though the crochet along is over you can still get the pattern for free!
Who Can You Crochet this C2C Alphabet & Numbers Blanket for?
The toddler stood over the blanket. Proudly, he proclaimed “A! B! C!…” It was obvious that he was only reciting the alphabet from memory rather than actually reading anything as he was clearly pointing to the wrong letters. Yet, it was a delight to watch him learn and grow. One day, he would be able to read the C2C letters on the blanket.
Well, now that we are heading into the Fall and Craft Season, I feel like it’s the perfect time to crochet a C2C blanket that you might give someone as a gift. It’s the perfect gift for a preschooler who is trying to learn the alphabet, or a preschool teacher for her classroom.

How to Crochet C2C Alphabets & Numbers
The blanket is made in 7 strips – each line of letters/numbers is made separately. Once finished the blanket pieces are blocked and steamed and sewn together using the mattress stitch. Lastly, a candy cane border is added.
This pattern was made with HDC STITCHES for the Corner to Corner Blanket. Here is an hdc tutorial.
Crochet each strip of letters/numbers separately. All white pixels are aran/white.
Letters A through d are made with Hot Red.
To make it a bit easier, here is the picture “chopped” up. Hope it’s easier the read now. But again, I would suggest getting the pdf.
Thanks to an awesome crocheter we now have the above graph A through d written out. For the “yellow lines” read from left to right (some words are broken up). All rows are diagonal rows.
To understand it better, here is an example: Row 12 says to do 9 white pixels, 1 red pixel, and 2 white pixels.
Letters E through i are made with Cherry Red
Letters J through v are made with Burgundy
Letters O through r are made with Burgundy
Letters S through v are made with Burgundy
Letters W through z are made with black
Numbers 1 through 0 are made with scarfi yarn
Fasten off and weave in your ends.
Block the pieces using a steamer and blocking boards (foam is best for these strips). If you need a tutorial, I linked it in the stitch list.
Once you have blocked all your pieces, sew them together using the mattress stitch.
Now crochet 1 row of single crochets all around the blanket (crochet 2 sc’s per pixel and 2 sc per corner). It should create a stitch count of a multiple of 4 in the end.
Finally, add the Candy Cane border using the colors hot red and black by skipping a stitch between each color. In the corners, crochet both colors in 1 stitch.
Fasten off and weave in your ends.
