The Behemoth Blanket was born of a love of Corner to Corner Crochet worked in the Round. We are making large “tiles” that are then compiled into a gorgeous geometric design. If you, too, love Corner to Corner crochet worked in rounds, this blanket is perfect for you!

Behemoth Blanket: Free Crochet Pattern

When creating this blanket design, I wanted to create an optical illusion that is both stunning to look at and easy to do. Strategic color changes create such a fun effect! Make your blanket a crib size with just four tiles, or one large enough to cover the entire bed. The more square tiles you have, the better the geometric effect…

One of the great things about this blanket is that the individual tiles are small enough to be portable. Work one up on a long car ride, or while hanging out with the family during the holidays etc.

Because these tiles are all the same size, you get to choose how many of them to add to your blanket. Each tile is about 24″ square. For the blanket pictured I made (12) tiles and arranged them 4 squares tall and 3 squares wide. This means that the completed blanket is about 72″ (183 cm) wide and 96″ (244 cm) tall… PLENTY large enough!

Using three colors really creates depth to the blanket, or an optical illusion. I love it so much and I hope you enjoy creating it as well!

It may be easier for you to follow the written pattern for this tile pattern or you may prefer a chart. I have included both below, so you can choose which to use.

  1. Your blanket is beautiful. I have been crocheting for about 60 years. I know how to c2c, but I have never seen or heard of it done in the round. Do you have, or know of a video for this. I would love to try it, but reading the instructions, I am very confused, especially about the rotating. Thanks!
