The Winter Fox 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.
Mr. Fox is a sly little guy that normally likes to keep to himself, but as the weather turns cold he finds it warms his heart to spend time with his woodland friends. He puts on his scarf and ventures out into the snow to join the celebration.
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 creatures 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.
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 prevent so much frustration. I wish I had thought of them sooner. Check it out!.

I used a size G crochet hook and my 32×32 pixel square measures 16 inches x 16 inches. This will give me a 48 inches x 64 inch blanket when completed. This is a gauge of 2 squares wide and 2 squares tall = 1 inch Feel free to use a larger hook. I am considering using this square as a pillow and making the rest (and remain this square) with a size H hook. I will update this pattern to reflect the yardage and gauge once I have that information.
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! C2C Video Tutorials and Tips
Winter Fox 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.

I am so happy with how easy this graph ended up being.
Finishing up Winter Fox 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. Are you going to make a Winter Fox?
