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.

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!

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.

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.

    Hello ? I love your woodsy C2C. I just learned how to figure out c2c, and when I completed my practice lol I got so excited & gitty about it, I showed my husband, he knew I’ve been talking about it and seen it & said that I did very well lol I showed him the beginning and my progress , till I was finished. I’m such a big kid, I get ?so happy about simple things. I’m very slow to getting crochet things done, cause work and other distractions. Sometimes I run Cross patterns are hard for me to comprehend & that takes me much longer. I like to THANK YOU!!!! So much for sharing your beautiful work ♥️‼️‼️

But I think I’m ready to try and when I do, I’d be excited and happy to show you ?‼️ I just love Christmas time and seeing what you have made inspires me to want to try make. I just have to sometimes push myself not to lol be intimidated sometimes☺️ Have wonderful day ??????thank you!!!
