Christmas Polar Bear Pixel Graph

Well, I've had a stomach bug past 2 days and not up to, I did the next best thing - worked on a Christmas Pixel Graph to make into a blanket!!! I haven't decided yet if I want to do this in blanket yarn, bulky yarn or worsted weight yarn.

I think my Polar Bear turned out super cute and will make a great addition to my seasonal decor.  

So, please feel free to use my graph if you would like. 

Christmas Polar Bear Pixel Graph

 Christmas Polar Bear Blanket Pattern

Size:  approximately 32" x 38"

--6.0mm hook
--#4 worsted weight yarn; I used "I Love This Yarn" from Hobby Lobby in Dark Olive (for background) - 1 and 1/2 skeins, Sea Blue & Sungold (for small present) - small amount, Navy & Red (for large present) - small amount, White, Black & Red (for polar bear) - less than 1 skein of each
--tapestry needle for weaving 

U.S. Stitch Abbreviations:
Ch:  chain
Sl st:  slip stitch
St:  stitch(es)
Rep:  repeat
SC:  single crochet
DC:  double crochet 
FO:  fasten off 

Special Note:  This blanket was made using C2C Crocheting.  There's a lot of tutorials on the internet to help you with this.  

For the blanket portion, I used my above pixel graph and the standard C2C (Corner-2-Corner) method of Crocheting.  I worked this pattern using Ch6 and DC stitches.  Once I completed the graph portion, I then added the border.

1.  With Dark Olive, evenly SC around the perimeter of the blanket, placing 3 SC st in each corner.   Sl st join to first st.  
2-3.  DC in each st around, placing 3 DC st in each corner.  Sl st join to first st.  At the end of Round 3, FO Dark Olive yarn and join White yarn.  
4.  With White yarn, SC around, placing 3 SC st in each corner.  Sl st join to first st.  FO and weave ends.  

Happy Crocheting....
