This Solar System themed crochet blanket features all the elements of our solar system, complete with comets, asteroids and a space ship (or two!). This blanket was originally released as a Crochet Along, but you can get all the afghan square patterns instantly by clicking each photo at the bottom of the post.
I hope you enjoyed making the squares for the C2C Solar System Blanket! I have been working all week to get my squares sewn together, and got it finished just in time for the Solar Eclipse on Monday. If you are anxious to get it sewn and not have more ends to weave in, the invisible seam is a good option, using this method so you only have to use one strand of yarn.
However, it’s also quite easy to sew them together using a simple single crochet stitch. You can go through all 4 loops, but I like the look of going through the Back loops only. Be sure to put wrong sides together when doing this method. Because the square are facing inward, the back loops will be the loop closest to you and the loop farthest from you. It will be nice and flat on the front but the back with have a ridge where you have worked the sc, so if you prefer not to have that, be sure to work an invisible seam instead.
Finish your blanket by working a simple sc border (or other border of your choice).
You can put sew them tougher any way you like, but here is a example of how they can go together:
The Boy has been so excited for me to sew my squares together (which have been taking up the whole couch for several weeks now). He has begged me to let him have it on his bed, and I am having a weird feeling of over-protectiveness. Blankets just take So. Long. To make.
But if it isn’t well-loved and used, than what good is it?
It does look pretty cute on his bed.
