Crochet Corner to Corner (C2C) Baby Sheep Graphgan

I successfully finished my first Corner to Corner (C2C) Graphgan! The C2C works up much quicker than the pixel square blanket and the bobble stitch blanket so it’s a great option for those of you who want to give pixel crochet a try. In this post I am going to give you the basics about creating a C2C blanket. There is no specific pattern to follow, you create these afghans by following a pixel graph, working from the bottom right hand corner, row by row, until you get the top left hand corner!

What you need to re-create the Baby Sheep C2C Graphgan:
– Baby Sheep Graph. This graph will cost you $2.50. It is the most adorable cross stitch pattern by GreatHome and available for purchase HERE on Etsy. When I saw it on Pinterest, I knew I had to have it! The instant download file comes with the pixel graph you will need. Keep in mind that you do not need to purchase this pattern to create a C2C graphgan. You can use ANY pixel graph pattern and follow the instructions below.
– Size G Crochet Hook. Typically I would use size H but this graph was 73×79 squares and I new a smaller hook would keep it from becoming too big.
– Worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Beige, Silver Blue, White, Pink, and Antique Rose.
– Tapestry needle
– Pen to mark your squares as you go!
I took a lot of video throughout the creation of this project… but when I looked back on it, it seemed to be too confusing. I decided to show you how to make a C2C by crocheting a small graph. That way you can see how to start, make increases, create your “maintain” rows, and then how to do the decreases. You can apply the techniques in the video to a large more complex graphgan.

Here is a separate video on how to make color changes!

Remember to mark off each square as you go! Double check your work to make sure you haven’t missed a square. If one thing doesn’t line up, the whole design will be thrown off.
The entire C2C Graphgan took me a little over a week to complete. The finished size is approximately 58×64 inches and the graph was 73×70 squares. You can see my day to day progress in the pictures below!

Now lets talk about the border! 
When you finish the C2C you will notice your edges will have a combination of a chain followed by 3 double crochets. To make a single crochet border, you want to make 2 SC in the chain parts and one SC over each double crochet part. This will create a nice even edge.
I made a simple border using 4 rows of single crochets (first beige, then antique rose, then pink, then blue) finishing with a picot edging in white. Each corner needs to have a SC + 2 chains + SC.  The picot edging is 3 SC, *chain 3, slip stitch to first chain, SC in next 3 stitches, repeating from *. Try your best to land on a picot in each corner. If you need to add in an extra SC or skip a stitch, it really won’t be that noticeable. Getting a clean corner is more important!

The back is just as beautiful as the front (as pictured below)! The image is just reversed.

I didn’t plan this out but I love a happy accident! This C2C graphgan fits perfectly on a twin size bed!

I hope you like my baby sheep C2C! Looking forward to seeing what you create as well!

    I love how cute this is. Thank you so much for explaining how to work a c2c. I think I am ready to tackle a project I have been wanting to make my boys. A Mario Bros inspired blanket. Was originally going to do blocks but I think this will work better. I have a question about the graph paper you used above. Did that come with the pattern or do you make that yourself? If you do it yourself can you please tell me how?

      Barbara, I don't know how computer wise you are but I do all my graphs on an excel spreadsheet. Makes it real easy to keep and to change.

  2. says

    Sarah, you are brilliant!!! I have truly enjoyed watching you do these last three projects. I only wish that this lamb one had been done before I made a graphghan for my dad for Father's Day…it would've looked SO much better! My brain can't wrap around such concepts let alone conjure them up. I have to rely on way more intelligent people, such as yourself, to design them. :) I do have one question, though. In your second video, could a person slip stitch the pink along that square and then attach the blue or would that throw the whole pattern off?

  3. says

    This is absolutely adorable! I really like the corner to corner stitch but I never thought of using it for a charted picture. The results look amazing.

  4. says

    Adorable! I've been wanting to try something like this!
    I'm a little confused about turns and color changes. In your small example, you start off working in a diagonal zigzag, but then move to the top corner. I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around turns, the graph and color changes. Maybe it will make sense when I try it, but I'm not visualizing it at all!

  5. says

    This is absolutely marvelous. I don't like ends or seaming but I loved your cupcake blanket. I've already started looking for a cross-stitch chart to use. Thank you. This really is brilliant.

  6. says

    Sarah, this is gorgeous! Can I ask roughly how much yarn you needed to make this? I have been thinking about trying my hand at a c2c graphgan like this for a while, but I can't seem to find out how much yarn I need!

  7. says

    Hi Sarah! I love your website and especially love the kind way you share your talent with all of us. It is very generous of you. <3
    I´m about to start my 1st graphgan C2C, and have a lot of questions. Can you help me with one?
    I really want to know how many squares your graphic has, and the final size of your blanket.
    Thanks a lot!
    Love,
    Bruna.

    Once again another beautiful creation from you! Thank you for always sharing your creativity with us! I am curious…. What does the back of this blanket look like? Is it a mirror image of the front?

    • Megan says

      I saw you posted the colors, but theres 6 colors used right? Beige for the background, Silverblue for the outline, white for the sheep fur, Pink in the legs, Antique rose in the bow and what not and a different color for the eye lashes, Or did you use beige and It just looks a different color to me? Thank you in advance! Again, great c2c!!!

  9. Allison D says

    One question–you give two different sizes for the graph 73×79 and 73 x70, which one was it? I was wondering because I am using your measurements as a ratio to compare in order to make a queen size graph.

  10. Cyndi says

    this is so cute! can i ask how big it is stitch wise? I’m currently working on a different character but I’m looking to make it this size or a hair bigger. I love your work! You’ve inspired me to do much more and I’ve learned so much from being apart of your group! thank you!

  11. Judy says

    This afghan is stunning and the video is very helpful, thank you! I’m interested in your process as much as your product. May I ask how you work on something this large with the color changes? Do you lay it out on a table or floor, or do you work with it on your lap? (If the latter, you must wait till the kids go to bed because if you had any interruptions that would cause you to rise from your chair, it would take several minutes to get organized again with all your yarns in order….) I’m learning so much from you; thank you for your generosity in sharing your talent!

  12. Karen says

    I have been trying this. Now on row 25 of my design and it’s not lining up. I’ve checked and didn’t miss any blocks. The only thing I can think of is on the design do I increase on both sides until I reach the top of design. Or do I just increase on the top side.

  13. Darlene says

    Hate to post a stupid question but I would love to make this afghan for a baby but if the pattern to buy is only a cross stitch pattern, how do you know how many stitches for the background? Do you have to figure this out for yourself? I’m currently working on the Christmas blocks afghan. Love it.

    Hi there! I am loving working up a throw using this method. My pattern is words, so there are no big sections of color changes like in the sheep, so I’m wondering if there’s an easier way to do the color changes without all of the ends I’m going to be left with. Would you take a look and see if you have any advice? The pattern I made is here: https://www.facebook.com/mandikaye/posts/968136230544

    Could you post the graph you used to make this blanket, and how do I convert to a baby blanket? I bought the stitch graph, but not sure how to make it fit a baby blanket……HELPPPPPP

    Hello! I am absolutely in love with this blanket and it has inspired me to try out my own c2c blanket. I do have one question though…Do you have any suggestions on making the blanket a particular size? I have a pattern I made that was originally supposed to be a sc afghan for a full size bed. I want to convert it over to a c2c but am unsure how to go about it and ensure its not too big or too small.

    Thank You.

  25. Kitty says

    I just found your website and I have to say thank you! I can easily follow your videos and I love this stitch! The only problem is now I need to alternate between making my own graph-ghan and my granny square blanket to get both of them done haha.

  26. Becky Reynolds says

    I love the Teddy Bear C2C blanket. Do you happen to have a C2C in an owl pattern? And explain how to use the graph on creating the project. Looking forward in hearing from you with all the details explained and how to go about using it in plain English.
    I have not used or worked from a graph before. And I’d like to learn how to make my own patterns using a graph system. Thanks for your help. Becky from Idaho.
