Two years ago I had the pleasure of creating this Polar Bear C2C Blanket for Simply Crochet Magazine! It was published in Issue 50 which you can read about HERE. Luckily I am now able to also share the pattern right here on my blog for free! YAY!! It’s the perfect project to hook up for Christmas or the winter season.
– Bernat Super Value Yarn (I originally used Special Aran yarn sent to me by Simply Crochet. I believe it is only available in the UK). Bernat Super Value would be a great replacement. I would go with colors Cool Blue or Aqua (2 skeins), White (2 skeins), Berry Red, with a bit of gray (or clay) and black. Shop the colors at Yarnspirations.com!
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Tapestry Needle
– Polar Bear Pixel Graph
I used the corner-to-corner crochet method to make this blanket.
First you will want to download the Polar Bear Pixel Graph. You can do that HERE. When you are done, it will be reversible! The same image will appear on either side (the polar bear 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.
When you are finished crocheting the graph using C2C crochet, you can add a snowflake border!
Polar Bear C2C Blanket Border
Round 1: With white yarn, SC to join between any of the squares on the edge. Chain 2 and SC in the next space between squares. Repeat around all edges making a SC + Chain 2 + SC in the corners.
Round 2: Slip stitch + Chain 4 + Slip stitch in the first chain 2 space, chain 4 and skip next chain space, slip stitch + chain 4 + slip stitch in the next chain space, repeat around making a SC + chain 2 + SC in the corners.
Round 3: [slip stitch, SC, chain 2+ slip stitch in second chain from hook, SC, chain 3 + slip stitch in second chain from hook and last chain, SC, chain 2 + slip stitch in second from hook, SC, slip stitch all in one chain 4 hump], make 3 SC in next chain 4 space, repeat from * in next chain 4 hump, repeat around making a SC + Chain 2 + SC in the corners. Join, fasten off and weave in ends.
If you like this blanket you might also like my Polar Bear Cub C2C Blanket! You can find the pattern for that cute project HERE.
I love seeing your projects! I have been crocheting over 35 years but I still don’t have much confidence to design my own challenges
What are the dimensions of this afghan? It is adorable! 🙂
Do you teach this pattern in your C2C class?

Your hyperlinks to the pattern only takes me to a page that tries to download some junk advertisement software on my computer. Any chance you might fix this, so I can download the pattern?
This is the first time I have done c2c and I am pleased with it. There is an error on the graph, the numbering at the top is wrong, it goes 77, 78, 80.
Where is the actual pattern/instructions for this afghan? The link doesn’t work and all I can access is the graph and border instructions.
