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 🙂
– Bernat Super Value Yarn in Cool Blue (I would get 3-4 skeins)
– Bernat Super Value Yarn in Berry Red (one skein)
– Bernat Super Value Yarn in Honey brown (main body color) (2-3 skeins)
– Bernat Super Value Yarn in Oatmeal beige (face and tummy) (one skein)
– Bernat Super Value Yarn in Taupe dark brown (limb outline, branch, eyes/nose/mouth) (2 skeins) – you could also go with another shade of brown (like Topaz) for the branch!
– Bernat Super Value Yarn in White (one skein)

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.
Get the Christmas Sloth Pixel Graph HERE
You can get the free downloadable PDF of the written color change pattern HERE.
She also made a cross stitch graph (you can use this for crochet as well!). Find it HERE.
You can follow Jenn’s Creative Crochet HERE on facebook and find her own pixel graph designs HERE in her Etsy shop!
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!
This is so super cute! I have a friend who would absolutely love this. Do you know what size it will be when it is finished?

I’d like to know, too!
I’m interested in the sizing too. My son and his new wife have a thing for sloths, this would be fun to do. Of course, I do need to learn c2c first!

I can’t wait to make this! My daughter loves sloths!
I completed this sloth afghan in 20 days days. It makes me smile! Since I can’t leave a photo here, you can follow this link, to see my almost finished blanket (I hadn’t finished the border on one side) and the amounts of yarn I used. https://happilyeveraperture.com/c2c-crochet-christmas-sloth-afghan/
I can’t share on social media yet, because my daughter will be getting it for her birthday in August. Thanks for a great pattern!
Hi, I’ve moved my post with the finished Crochet Christmas Sloth C2C Blanket to a new website. Mine ended up 50-inches x 50-inches using standard C2C crochet. You can see the updated post here: https://swishandstitch.com/c2c-crochet-christmas-sloth-afghan-repeat-crafter-me/
