The Carrot C2C Square is Part 7 of The Easter Blanket Graphgan Crochet a Long (CAL) at Nana’s Crafty Home!

Carrot C2C Square Easter Blanket Graphgan CAL part 7

The Carrot square is easy and works up really quickly in just 3 main colors! I am using Caron Simply Soft* for this blanket and I am really loving the soft sheen it provides this spring blanket square!

A note about the color of the carrot — I used Caron Simply Soft in Pumpkin as I had easy access to it. However, in looking at the color options of the website the Mango color way may even be a better option. Go with what suits you!
