Big Brown Bear C2C Square Graph
The Big Brown Bear C2C Square Graph is the first square in my Woodland Winter Wonderland Blanket I will be sharing all fall and winter this year. I will be releasing a new graph every week and revealing the next week’s graph. Next week’s graph will be at the end of this article.
Brownie, the big brown bear rules the woods, but when winter comes it is time for a good long nap. Every year he wakes up from his nap to join in the winter celebration with all his woodland friends. So on goes his hat and out into the cold he goes with a gift in hand.
My Woodland Winter Wonderland Corner to Corner (C2C) Crochet Blanket will be made of 6 character squares and 3 rectangles. The scene will be all the woodland creature coming together to share and celebrate the winter season with gifts and decorations. There will be an optional top and bottom banner as well.
If you are going to be crocheting for Christmas this year make sure you check out my Handmade Gift Giving Guide to make the perfect give for everyone on your list.

Crochet Hook, Size H, 5.0mm – Used for Blanket
For this square I used a size H hook and had a 19 inch by 19 inch square. This will give me a blanket that measures 57 inch x 76 inch blanket.
I also tried a size G crochet hook and it measures 16 inches x 16 inches. This will give me a 48 inches x 64 inch blanket when completed.
I chose use a Size H hook when making the blanket and a G hook when using this pattern for pillows.
How to C2C?
I find corner to corner crochet is best learned through videos, so I have compiled a playlist of helpful videos for anyone who is looking to learn or wants some tips for making C2C easier!
A Solution to Tangled Yarn!
I have been working on these C2C Woodland Critters for the last few months and I have had quite a few tangled messes to deal with!
Well I have finally found a simple solution and I want to share it with you. I have designed a Yarn Bobbin that is printable and available for free to all my newsletter subscribers!
Check out the Yarn Bobbin Tutorial to learn how to quickly make these bobbins and how to use them. They will can prevent so much frustration. I wish I had thought of them sooner. Check it out!.
More ways to use this Graph
Corner to corner is not the only way this chart can be used! You can use this graph with the granny square pixel method to create a blanket using a single graph. You can also do tapestry crochet and use single crochet stitches to make a smaller square. The bobble stitch graph method is also very popular lately.
Big Brown Bear C2C Square Graph
Note: For the picture shown I used the C2C method with Half double crochet stitches instead of double crochet. This gives me a tighter stitch.
To use Half Double Crochet just chain 5 instead of 6 when increasing and chain up 2 instead of three.

Finishing up Big Brown Bear Square
To finish my square I Single Crocheted around the edge. To do this you will single crochet into the top or bottom of each stitch and work two single crochet into the sides of each stitch. When I was finished I just stretched my work a little bit until it looked like a square. You can also block the square as well.
