Crochet Elephant Baby Blanket - C2C


I completed this cute C2C elephant blanket last night for a baby shower gift. I used "I Love This Yarn" #4 worsted weight from Hobby Lobby and a 5mm hook.

The blanket was made using standard, double crochet C2C method.

The border was done as follows:
--1 row sc in navy
--1 row sc in greybeard
--1 row dc in greybeard
--2 rows fpdc & bpdc in greybeard
--1 row sc in navy

-- on the sc rows I added 3 sc in each corner
-- on the other rows I added 3 dc in each corner

I used the elephant pixel graph from the following link:

    1. I made this blanket with the corner-to-corner method, using double crochet stitches. I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can help or better explain anything further.

    3. Penny, this blanket was made using a graph and starting in one corner. I started with a chain 6 and then you double crochet into the 4th, 5th & 6th chain to create the first diagonal block. Here is a link to a great tutorial on how to make a corner-to-corner (C2C) blanket: http://crochet.about.com/od/skillstechniques/tp/Guide-to-Corner-to-Corner-Crochet.htm?utm_content=20160306&utm_medium=email&utm_source=exp_nl&utm_campaign=list_crochet&utm_term=list_crochet&utm_source=pinterest&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=shareurlbuttons_nip

    1. Pink - for the tongue; approx 1 yard
      Black - outline portion of elephant; less than 1 skein
      Light grey - 1 skein
      Graybeard - I bought 2 skeins but it did not take all of it
      Navy - less than 2 skeins
      All of the yarn was bought at Hobby Lobby, "I Love This Yarn" brand. My apologies on a delayed response. I was having email issues that's now fixed. Please feel free to message me any other questions you may have. Thanks.

  3. Hello!
    I'm currently making this but using bulky blanket yarn. How big your blanket was with the worsted yarn?

    1. Hey, Tiffany, I don't remember the exact measurement now of it but it was around 32-34" wide & 38-40" long. I hope this helps gives you an idea. I'd love to see a pic of yours when you get it finished. I bet it will be super warm with the bulky yarn.

    1. You're most welcome. Good luck if you give corner-to-corner method a try. It may look hard but it really isn't once you get the hang of it. It's so much fun making blankets this way.

    1. Yes, you can, however, you may want to increase how many stitches each box equals/represents for sizing. Good luck.
