I’m back with another holiday corner-to-corner crochet blanket! This time it has a Halloween theme! How cute is this little black kitty peaking up from the bottom of the blanket?! And then an adorable spider comes down from the top to say hello! Halloween doesn’t need to be scary or creepy. I just love making cutsie creations for my seasonal decor!

– Halloween Pixel Graph – download HERE
Finished Size: approximately 42 x 32 inches
I used the Corner-to-Corner (C2C) method to crochet the graph.If you aren’t familiar with the C2C technique, I have a video class available HERE for purchase that teaches you this technique! The Crochet Crowd also has a very helpful video tutorial for FREE that shows you the basic technique of corner-to-corner crochet. Check that out HERE.
VERY IMPORTANT: Instead of the traditional C2C method of using DC’s and chain 3’s to make each pixel, I used HDC’s and only chained 2 (and chained 5 instead 6 on the increase stitches). This allowed me to have tighter stitches and a smaller overall piece. You can absolutely use the traditional method of DC’s.
Round 1: (with black) Join yarn in between any of the squares along the edge. SC in space between squares, chain 2, SC in next space between squares, repeat around entire blanket. Do not do anything special on the corners.
Round 2: Working over the chain 2 spaces.. DC + Chain 1 + DC + Chain 1, repeat in each chain 2 space around entire blanket. Don’t Do anything special in the corners.
Round 3: SC over each chain 1 space around entire blanket. Make 2 SC + chain 2 + 2 SC in each corner.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Perfect your blanket with these finishing tips and tricks!
I surface slip stitched the whiskers on the cat. This is completely optional.
Ever wonder why sometimes the squares of the same color seem disconnected on corner-to-corner projects? There is a simple answer and fix to this! See how I use my loose ends to my advantage!
