Of course Corner to Corner crochet is not the only way you can use the April Showers C2C Graph. You could make the graph using the bobble stitch method or with single crochet tapestry crochet.

Since this was a smaller graph I thought I would share how I used my yarn bobbins. I like to use my Printable Bobbins to keep my yarn from getting tangled.
For this graph I used 3 blue bobbins, and 1 pink bobbin, 1 grey bobbin, 1 yellow bobbin, and 1 white bobbin.
The I used one blue bobbin for each side of the umbrella. I used the third blue bobbin for a very small portion of the center blue area that is near the arch of yellow in the umbrella.
I normally do not like to carry one yarn color under the other but since the grey is such a small amount I did carry the blue under the gray yarn to cut down on the ends to weave in.
For the Yellow and white, I was not able to carry this yarn from one row to the next. You can easily omit the white and make all those squares blue if you do not want to have many ends to weave in. I just really liked the idea of having the white represent the rain.
You can of course use as many or as few bobbins as you would like, but this is just how I did it.
Finishing Up the April Showers C2C Graph
To finish this graph and make it into a washcloth I just Single crocheted around the edge. If you don’t know how to add a single crochet border, you can check out my video tutorial or my photo tutorial.
For the washcloth I added the border and wove in my ends and it was done. For the Pot Holder, I made a plain 15×15 C2C square, Single Crocheted a border to that square and the square using the graph and used a running stitch to sew the two together. You can learn more about Sewing Crochet Pieces Together with my video tutorial.
Now you have an adorable new addition to you kitchen!
