When doing a corner to corner crochet, I love to use the Printable Yarn Bobbins to keep my project tangle-free!
Of course Corner to Corner crochet is not the only way you can use the Heart Ballon C2C Graph. You could make the graph using the bobble stitch method or with single crochet tapestry crochet.
I have seen someone make my Woodland Wonderland Blanket using 4 Single Crochet for every square on the graph.

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 2 blue bobbins, 1 red bobbin and 1 orange bobbin. For the white did each square without carrying the yarn to the next row.
I did not map out the red below, because I only used one bobbin for red, I carried my yarn underneath the white. I only had 2 ends to weave in for the red. (Four ends if you include that I bordered the pot holder with red.)
You can of course use as many or as few bobbins as you would like, but this is just how I did it.
Below I mapped out using different shades where I carried each bobbin.
Finishing Up the Heart Balloon 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!
