This blanket has been on my list of Crochet Goals for years. I have doodled it across many sheets of trusty graph paper, but had never picked up my hook and started it. I seemed to be waiting for …. something. Then one day, while wandering the asiles of my local Joann’s I found the yarn Green Tones from Red Heart. Now I am not an ambassador for Red Heart yet, (hint-hint Red Heart Yarns) but I truly love their stuff and use it in 90% percent of my projects. I am particularly swooning over this Green Tones skein lately and have used it also in my Christmas Tree Beanie. These shades of greens makes such an impact while only using one strand of yarn, which makes this project work up so fast!
I would be failing you if I didn’t express fully how much I love this blanket. We all know I’m a sucker for all C2C projects, but this corner to corner blanket is my favorite (as of this date) in the whole entire history of the world ever! It was so fun to make I barely put it down, which is why I have zero progress photos to share with you. From start to finish, I completed this blanket in less than a week, but with a classic map design it is sure to be cherished for generations!
UPDATE: Although I have not yet finished the XTRA LARGE size yet, I have gotten so much interest in a bigger size that I thought I would share it with you. I will add the graph below the original version. Good luck and keep sharing all your finished products!

CORNER TO CORNER
If you have already dabbled in corner to corner crochet you know you will only need the graph below to complete your World Map Blanket. One day I will insert a link to a fabulous corner to corner (C2C) tutorial I have created just for you, but until then I would like to encourage you to check out Mikey from the Crochet Crowd’s episode of Corner to Corner. I think he covers everything for beginners and anyone who needs a refresher.
I would like to note, that most c2c projects are started in the bottom right corner. I choose to start my blanket in the top right corner. I believe this made the color changes easier and less frequent, it also may be that I am left handed and I just like to do things backwards. Any corner you choose to start in will result in a beautiful heirloom World Map blanket when you are finished.
UPDATE: XTRA LARGE C2C World Map Blanket. If you have any trouble printing this huge graph I took the above image and made each square four to get 4x as big of a blanket! If I ever pick up that WIP again it’ll be amazing! I hope you all try it out and share your work by tagging @coffeeandcrochetgoals.
For this blanket I choose to add an extremely simple border. I always like a border to really finish off any project, but I didn’t want to take away from the image. You may choose to make a more elaborate border by adding multiple rounds of different stitches, (like a ruffle border similar to the one that finished off the #naps blanket). If you do decide to add more rounds to the border, you will do so after completing the following:
Attach white yarn onto any side of the blanket and CH3, counts as first SC and CH2. SK 1 tile and 1SC into the space between tiles. CH2 and 1SC into the next space between tiles. Continue all around the blanket, IN THE CORNERS make sure to place a SC into the point CH2 and 1SC into the same point. This will give you a nice, clean corner. SL ST to the beginning and tie in those loose ends.
How beautiful is this blanket!? Although, it doesn’t take long to whip up, I am confident that it will become an instant heirloom. Sure to be cherished by every home across the globe. Comment below where you are from and lets see how far and wide this World Map Corner to Corner blanket can reach!
