Merry Christmas in July! It is becoming tradition for me to create a fun Christmas blanket project in the month of July. A few of the past years projects include my Crochet Christmas Lights Blanket and my Gift Box Granny Square Blanket. This year I made an adorable Corner-to-Corner Crochet Christmas Owl Blanket! It’s actually a fairly quick project, especially if you are already familiar with the C2C technique. It’s baby blanket size, measuring approximately 40×40 inches but you could always make it bigger by continuing the border.
– 2 skeins of Bernat Super Value Yarn in and Lush Green and Topaz (you may not need both skeins of topaz but it is much easier to have both attached when working on this blanket)
– 1 skein of Bernat Super Value Yarn in Black, White, Berry Red, Mushroom, Walnut, and Bright Yellow.

– Size H Crochet Hook
– Tapestry Needle
– Christmas Owl Pixel Graph
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! This blanket is square so you don’t have to worry about increasing on one side and decrease on the other (like you would need to do in a rectangle blanket). So the square shape makes it less confusing if you are a newbie to corner-to-corner crochet. 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.
Most Corner-to-Corner crochet projects are completely reversible! This one is too! The Santa hat will facing the other direction on the backside.
You will need to download your pixel graph. I created two color options for you but of course you can use whatever colors of yarn you desire! Did I mention that there are over 50 choices in the Bernat Super Value line?!

Here are some corner-to-corner crochet tips that I filmed while making the blanket! I go over changing color, making a border, and then I show a little of the candy cane edging!
Thanks to my oldest son for stepping in as my crochet model this time! Zoe was at camp and I had this guy at home during photoshoot time 🙂 Between the matching santa hat and his rimmed glasses, I think he coordinates with the blanket perfectly!
