I have some exciting news! I’ve collaborated with Lion Brand Yarn on a new C2C (corner-to-corner) crochet project: An owl baby blanket!! So cute, right?! You’ve seen me give a couple sneak peeks of this on Facebook and Instagram but now that I am about halfway through, I’m able to give you a better look at the design. I created the graph in Photoshop and am working hard on writing out very clear instructions. Even beginners will be able to make this blanket! The tutorial will include the printable owl graph, detailed photo tutorials, a written pattern for the color changes, AND a written pattern for the entire graph (I’ve never seen this done before but we are breaking the mold!). The final post and pattern will be available in early November on the Lion Brand Yarn Blog. I will be sure to let you know when it is finished and give you a link to the final post and pattern when it’s ready!
If you want to get prepared and purchase your yarn right now, I am using Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Yarn in these colors: Aqua, Sapphire, Silver Blue, Linen, Terracotta, White, and Black. I won’t have final numbers on skeins until the end. But go ahead and stock up now! Great for a gender neutral baby gift or customize it for a boy or girl. The Vanna’s Choice Yarn line has so many wonderful color options!
If you haven’t tried pixel crochet, this is going to be a great project to start with. I’ve purposely created simple lines that work well with the corner-to-corner (C2C) technique. Tips like how to change colors and carry your yarn up without cutting ends will all be included in the tutorial. A big thank you to Lion Brand Yarn for commissioning this project and providing me the tools to work up this adorable little owl!
Stay tuned for more!

LOVE this! Can’t wait to see pattern!
Oh I’m loving this!!! I’m currently working on a C2C blanket for a babe due in February but it just may need to be replaced!!!
Compliments for your new design. Great that Lion Brand Yarn and you are working together. This blanket is gorgeous.
Have a nice day, Margaret

That is totally adorable! You make the best patterns.
Thank you so much! I was online looking for aqua yarn and an owl pattern for my granddaughter. The REPEATCRAFTERME newsletter popped up and made my day!!! Your newsletters are the BEST!
Oh, he’s so gorgeous. I just love your designs and am a big fan. I’ve just today finished my first graphghan project, a smaller version of your Christmas blanket and am absolutely hooked! I made a banner with the baby’s name which I made out on graph paper. I’d really like to know how to make my own basic design c2c graphghan for a cushion and I’m sure there’s an easier way than doing it by the old fashioned colouring in squares but on computer and if you are able to point me in a direction for this I’d be most grateful.
Thanks for all your hard work and fabulous inspiration ….Diane X
I may just have to try C2C/pixel crochet – this is adorable.

How do I get a message to Sarah? I am trying to get the larger size Minnie Mouse hat pattern and the link that says to click it for the pattern gave my computer a virus. Even on the Repeat Crafter Page, there is advertisements all over the place that pop up when you hit the highlighted link. Please, if you can send me the pattern or a direct link I would certainly appreciate it very much.
This is adorable! I haven’t done a C2C or pixel crochet yet. I can’t wait to see the final tutorial and give it a shot 🙂
I just love your patterns and this looks so cute. Might be the perfect blanket for me to make my little girl and try out pixel crochet. I’ve been dying to try it. Thank you.
maybe i will try this. if the instructions r made simple and graph chart clear, i just might be able to something like this for my grandkids.
thank u for such beautiful designs.

OMG, I love OWL’s and want to be a part of this CAL when it starts. What do I need to do to join??????????
I was reading this post and you said you have never seen this done before and I just wanted to let you know that there is a fb page called @hookagraphcreations that does this very thing! I’ve joined a CAL that they are doing right now and it’s so much fun!
Too cute. I tried making a C2C blanket but had trouble with colour changing and tails of yarn. Can you show us how to keep the colors yarn and not having to cut them like in your pictures?
OMG this is so cute! I’m gonna stock up for my yarn right now. Can you estimate how many of each color should I buy? Thank you!
Can’t wait. Got all the yarn but one color, sapphire. But now going to get pinks also. Both of my nephews and their wives are expecting in summer !! Got to cover both bases !! #Great-Aunt

I like this…but I love the lion one….will you be doing a video on that one….I hope you do so I can learn how to do a graph….love them
First off I love this pattern .. Thankyou so much for sharing it.. I have a question though.. On your decrease row do you count that first decrease as a complete pattern block..I’m getting errors when it comes to matching up the blocks in the eyes..It’s like I’m one block off and the same with the beak
Is the C2C Owl pattern available?
