Southwest Sunburst C2C Crochet Afghan

by | All Designs, Crochet, Free Patterns, Home

I’m so excited to share this Native American Southwest Sunburst c2c crochet afghan because with all big projects, completing it comes with such a feeling of relief and accomplishment! This blanket uses some of my favorite colors, is super soft, and man, I’m just happy that it’s done!

Southwest Sunburst Afghan

When Lion Brand reached out to me and requested a corner-to-corner afghan, I knew I wanted to make a throw-sized blanket, not a full-size blanket like my Zoodiacs Afghan. This time, I really wanted something that would look at home on the couch, and I was a bit enamored with the idea of fringe. I’ve been toying with the idea of fringe for a while now, but never quite found the perfect project to use it on. After a couple of doodles, I landed on this Southwestern motif, and knew that it would look great with some fringe to finish it off.

For this afghan, I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice, a true staple in my collection. I love the color choices and its lightweight feel. It can withstand quite a bit of handling, which is perfect for blankets, since I make my blankets to be used, not hang out in a closet. I also chose a Clover USA J hook, at 6.00mm. This isn’t the hook recommended for the yarn, but I like this size as forces me to have a looser gauge, and “airs out” my stitches a bit.

If you need a primer (or a refresher!) on corner-to-corner crochet, I’ve compiled a c2c pictorial collection that takes you step-by-step through the different techniques used in this project. Last year, when I published my Zoodiacs Afghan, I also published a companion post that teaches corner-to-corner crochet using a series of videos. So, depending on how you learn best, whether it’s by video, pictures, or text, I should have you covered!

Everything You Need to Know to Learn C2C Crochet , includes videos, instructions and pictorials. | www.1dogwoof.com

Usually, I just publish a graph for my corner-to-corner patterns, but this time, I’ve written out exact text instructions for every row in this blanket – just keep scrolling to see the entire pattern. Since I wrote out each row, I indicated exactly where I start a new bobbin. I hate having a ton of little bobbins around, and I weaving in unnecessary ends, and I hate tying on more yarn when I run out, so I try to optimize the yarn that I use. If there’s a huge swatch of one color and I don’t anticipate having to cut that, I’ll use yarn straight from the skein. If I count forwards and see that I’ll only need to work a small number of squares with a particular color, I’ll measure and cut a length of yarn and create a clothespin bobbin for that little bit. Sometimes, I get caught in the middle and need to create a bobbin that is yards and yards long – then I’ll wrap it around a dowel and pop it into my Modular Bobbin Holder, which helps me keep all my yarn untangled.

To measure how much yarn you need for a bobbin, just frog a single square and see how much yarn it used. Then multiply that by the number of squares you’ll need to work, and add a foot or more to cover your tails, pun intended, ha! The bobbins get messy, as you can see, but it’s like going through white water rapids – you just get through it and then it’s over!

A modular bobbin holder is essential!

Working like this does require a bit of forward thinking. I jotted notes on my graph to show which direction I was working in, and where I thought I needed to switch bobbins so I could calculate the size of each bobbin. It’s definitely extra work, but pays off in the long run….just like your parents said it would.

Plan out your next bobbins on paper.

Thanks to an awesome collaboration with Lion Brand, you can purchase the Southwest Sunburst Afghan as a crochet kit! The kit includes the pattern along with all the Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice yarn you’ll need to make your own corner-to-corner blanket. Or if you’d just like to print this pattern, you can purchase an inexpensive PDF from my Etsy or Ravelry shop that has a large full-page graph, along with all the text instructions. Here’s all your Afghan options, made simple!

I just want the graph – keep scrolling!

I want the printable PDF with the full-size graph and written instructions – find it on Etsy or Ravelry!

I want it all – a printable pattern plus all the Vanna’s Choice yarn needed to make this blanket – get the Lion Brand kit!

I want it all, and a unicorn – well, ok, how about a unicorn stuffie?

    am I missing something or do these instructions only show a white stripe as opposed to the arrow shapes. I have started this pattern but the graph and instructions aren’t matching up.

      I’m using the written instructions and this is my second attempt… Get to row 30 and the numbers aren’t matching up.

        I just started and there is a mistake starting in row 10! So I think that throws the whole thing off!

      • Michelle

        I skipped the white arrows completely and got to row 50 and there is an error somewhere in there in between 48 and 50.

    • Michelle

      Not adding up for me either.

      there are lots of errors with the written instructions. The white stripe for the arrow starts on row 7 for the graph, but row 9 in the instructions! Also, the graph starts adding in yellow at line 34, but the instructions say it starts at row 38.

    Thank you for your beautiful pattern! When I saw this, I knew I had to do this one for my grandchild due in November as they are having a Southwestern theme. I just ordered my download off Ravelry to help support your work as you are so generous! I am a big fan of yours- your patterns are always delightful!!

    I love this pattern! It was my first C2C to do and you can tell with the evolution of my knowledge of color changing progressed from the different arrows I produced on either end.

    I did want to add since I work typically off written patterns the only typo I came across was in Row 59: …5 pink sq, 1 navy sq, 3 mustard sq (says 2 mustard), 10 gray sq…
