Well I guess I over-committed myself this holiday season. I had big hopes to complete this super cute Christmas Sloth C2C blanket but sadly I’ve had very little time to work on it. I am only human! The days and weeks have flown by and I am only on row 25 of this graph. But no worries! I am going to go ahead and post this pixel graph so those of you who want to get started on it can do so! I am making a goal for myself to get this done by Christmas in July. We can work on it together! Besides, I think it’s fun to work on Christmas projects all year round 🙂

Huge thanks to Jenn from Jenn’s Creative Crochet for cleaning up the graph and transforming it into a written color change pattern! I know this helps out so many of you who don’t like counting each pixel square.
I used the corner-to-corner crochet method to make this blanket. Instead of using DC stitches like a traditional C2C, I used HDC. See video below on how to corner-to-corner crochet using the Half Double Crochet.
First you will want to download the Sloth Pixel Graph above. When you are done, it will be reversible! The same image will appear on either side (the sloth will just be facing the other direction). If you aren’t familiar with the C2C technique, I have a video class available HERE for purchase that teaches you this technique! The CrochetCrowd also has a very helpful video tutorial for FREE that shows you the basic technique of corner-to-corner crochet. Check that out HERE.
You can also find a quick tutorial on how I Corner-to-Corner crochet using the HDC stitch below.
If you finish this Christmas Sloth C2C pleasure be sure and share it with me! Tag me on social media using @RepeatCrafterMe or hashtag #RepeatCrafterMe.
Happy Holidays and Happy Crocheting!
