Are you or someone you know a crazy plant lady? Or maybe you struggle to keep anything alive. I fall somewhere in between where I love all the plants but haven’t quite managed to figure out how to keep everything alive. So when the idea of creating a corner-to-corner (C2C) plant crochet pattern came along, I knew it was going to be perfect for the plant lovers out there, regardless of your ability to keep things alive.
This snake plant-inspired crochet pattern is part of a crochet-a-long (CAL) made with different designs featuring a wide variety of houseplants. It’s such a fun theme, don’t you think?

Introducing the Snake Plant C2C Crochet Blanket Square
I have a love-hate relationship with the real-life inspiration for this design, my very own snake plant. My dad gave me a few starts of his snake plant for Mother’s Day about three years ago, and while I managed to keep it alive and watch it grow a few new leaves, it recently died off and now I’m starting over. My husband tells me to buy a full-grown plant at the store, but I’d rather try starting anew with some more cuttings and figuring out how to help it flourish.
That’s how it works with crochet projects right? Instead of buying your own blanket, you can make one! Sure, there are times when you mess up, have to rip out a few rows, and start over, but that’s just part of the process. It’s how we learn and how we perfect our craft. Sure, it’s frustrating to have to redo sometimes hours of work, but it’s more satisfying to take the journey.
When making this square, you can use the traditional double crochet C2C or mini C2C which uses half double crochet stitches instead. The materials listed are for the mini or hdc C2C, so if you prefer to use regular double crochet C2C you will need more yarn than listed and your squares will be a little bit larger.
