Busy Beaver C2C Crochet Graph

The Busy Beaver C2C Crochet Graph is the next 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.

Busy busy this beaver is, building his winter lodge. There are trees to cut and twigs to gather to keep his family warm. But the time has come to put his work aside and gather up his little ones to go to the celebrate in the center of the woods.

My Woodland Winter Wonderland Corner to Corner (C2C) Crochet Blanket will be made of 6 character squares and 3 rectangles. The scene depicts 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.

Yarn

Feel free to change the colors of the scarf and present to any color you want. It is a great way to use up left over yarn in Vanna’s Choice. I kept the presents and scarves the same through out the project to minimize the number of colors needed.

Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Yarn, Sky Blue – 268 yards or 5.96 ozs

Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Yarn, White – 130 yards or 2.28 ozs

Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Yarn, Scarlet – 11 yards or 0.24 ozs

Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Yarn, Fern – 9 yards or 0.2 ozs

Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Yarn, Chocolate Brown – 6 yards or 0.11 ozs

Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Yarn, Toffee – 42 yard and 0.92 ozs

Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Yarn, Black – 4 yard – 0.09 ozs

Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Yarn, Beige – 8 yards or  0.15 ozs

Tools

Crochet Hook, Size H, 5.0mm – Used for Blanket

Yarn Needle

Scissors

 

Gauge

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!

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. These graphs would look great as a wall hanging or for the front of a winter tote!

Note: For the pictures 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 the Busy Beaver C2C Graph

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.

    I am making this blanket as a baby gift and the baby is due mid-January. I love all the animals but I would rather not include a Christmas Tree in the center since Christmas will be over. I’m slightly altering the animal presents into baby letter blocks. Any suggestions on what I can do differently in the large (center) rectangle? Thanks!

      I understand not wanting a Christmas tree. If you are ok with altering a graph I would remove the present and star and ornaments and just have a tree. I originally considered making it a snowman just so that it would be a winter blanket and not a christmas blanket, but I really liked all the critters having presents. It just seemed to add a nice touch of color. I hope this helps.

        The Tree is the same size as two squares. It would also be possible to double up on two of the critters.
