C2C Border Pattern

After completing the Kawaii Pumpkin chart (or written) pattern, don’t cut your yarn. You begin working the border immediately.

Pumpkin stitches are made in orange, carry it inside the Aran Tweed, and pull it up as needed to create the pmpk clusters

Row 1: Ch 1, sc 2 in corner, [*ch 2**, sc in space between the two C2C squares, repeat from * across, end repeat at **, (sc 2, ch 1, sc 2) in corner] repeat from [ to ] 3 more times, sc 2 in corner, ch 1, join.

Note: In Row 2, carry your non working yarns through the stitches, when starting the pumpkin stitches, bring up the orange (carry the white) then complete the pumpkin stitch.

Row 2:

Side 1: (Str 1, tr 4) in corner, tr 5 in next ch-2 sp (2 times), pmpk st, *tr 5 in next ch 2 sp, repeat from * 10 times, [pmpk st, *tr 5 in next ch-2 sp, repeat from * 11 times] repeat from [ to ] 4 times, pmpk st, *tr 5 in next ch-2 sp, repeat from * 10 times, pmpk, tr 5 in next ch-2 sp (2 times).

Side 2: (tr 5, ch 2, tr 5) in corner. tr 5 in next ch-2 sp (2 times), [pmpk st, *tr 5 in next ch-2 sp, repeat from * 10 times] repeat from [ to ] 2 times. [pmpk st, *tr 5 in next ch-2 sp, repeat from * 11 times] repeat from [ to ] 4 times, pmpk, tr 5 in next ch-2 sp (2 times).

Side 3: (tr 5, ch 2, tr 5) in corner. tr 5 in next ch-2 sp (2 times), [pmpk st, *tr 5 in next ch-2 sp, repeat from * 11 times] repeat from [ to ] 4 times. [pmpk st, *tr 5 in next ch-2 sp, repeat from * 10 times] repeat from [ to ] 2 times, pmpk, tr 5 in next ch-2 sp (2 times).

Side 4: (tr 5, ch 2, tr 5) in corner. tr 5 in next ch-2 sp (2 times), [pmpk st, *tr 5 in next ch-2 sp, repeat from * 11 times] repeat from [ to ] 4 times. [pmpk st, *tr 5 in next ch-2 sp, repeat from * 10 times] repeat from [ to ] 2 times, pmpk, tr 5 in next ch-2 sp (2 times)

Row 3: Ch 2, hdc in each stitch around entire blanket, work (hdc 2, ch 1, hdc2) in each corner, join (I had over 1500 hdc to end this row!)

If these instructions seem confusing at all, I’ll explain here.

I spaced my pumpkins around 10-11 stitches apart (stitches being the 5 trebles in the ch-2 space.

I counted each ch-2 space as 1, and the five trebles inside as 1 cluster of stitches)

The corner stitches are (tr 5, ch 2, tr 5).

How you space your pumpkins and how many pumpkins is completely up to you. You can create a pumpkin every 2 ch-spaces. Or like mine, space them every 10 or 11 stitches (ch-2 spaces with the 5-trebles inside).

I wanted to space mine out a little. The math didn’t quite match up to make them evenly spaced, but I think it looks great!

Double Crochet Border

I didn’t design a double crochet border initially because my main focus was on the C2C version. However, I didn’t want to leave my crochet friends out in the dark on this one, so I created a guide to creating a double crochet border.Keep in mind; this is a guide… Let’s do this…

After your last stitch, don’t cut the yarn (if you already cut it, just attach your new yarn in the right corner stitch, ch 1, and start the pattern below)

Note: Make first stitch in same as ch-1.

Row 1: Ch 1, sc in first 2 stitches, *ch 2, skip 2, sc in next stitch, repeat from * across, in last stitch (sc 2, ch 2, sc 2), repeat from [ to ] on all four sides, join.

Count the number of ch-2 spaces you have and decide how you’d like to space out your pumpkins (I counted 49 ch-2 spaces). So around 7 pumpkins will fit nicely.

Rows 2: Treble 5 in each ch-2 space, add a pumpkin cluster where you’d like (as recommended above). Corners: Treble 5, ch 2 Treble 5) into each corner, when you reach the beginning, join (do not cut yarn).

Row 3: Ch 1, hdc in each stitch around. Corners: (hdc 2, ch 2, hdc 2) in each corner, join to first hdc, tie off and weave in all tails.

I hope you enjoyed this pattern. I’ve add photos from some of the makers who joined the CAL and a photo of my finished blanket with and without the border.

Thanks everyone!
