The Shy Deer C2C Square 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.
This beautiful creature stands tall with its crown of antlers. He spends his days strolling through the woods and snacking on berries. With the weather getting chillier he puts on his scarf and he heads out to the celebration tree to celebrate winter with his friends.
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.

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

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!
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!
Shy Deer C2C Square Graph
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 Shy Deer
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.
