I’m dreaming of snow covered trees while living through this Southern California October heat. So while it may be 90 degrees here, I can still sit inside and crochet all the Fall, Winter, and Christmassy things 🙂 This Snowy Tree C2C (corner-to-corner crochet) project makes an awesome pillow or you can add a big border and make it into a baby blanket. I used Bernat Pipsqueak yarn for the snow and I love how it’s so fluffy and soft and looks like real snow!
– Bernat Pipsqueak Yarn (two 250g skeins if making the pillow)
– Bernat Super Value in Kelly Green, Aqua, and a bit of Brown for the trunk

– Size H Crochet Hook
– Standard Size Pillow

You will want to download the Snowy Tree Pixel Graph. You can do that HERE. When you are done, it will be reversible. The same image will appear on either side of the crocheted piece. If you aren’t familiar with the C2C technique, I have a video class available HERE for purchase that teaches you this technique! 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.
Instead of the traditional C2C method of using DC’s and chain 3’s to make each pixel, I used HDC’s and only chained 2 (and chained 5 instead 6 on the increase stitches). This allowed me to have a smaller overall piece. You can absolutely use Double Crochets but your rectangle will be larger – better for a blanket instead of a pillow.
To make the pillow, you will want to crochet a back panel. I used the Pipsqueak yarn for the entire backside! Follow the same pixel graph but keep it all one color (33×27 pixel squares). The pipsqueak yarn is actually really easy to work with when using the corner-to-corner method!
Crochet the edges together using single crochets!
Add in a standard size pillow before completely closing.
Snuggle up and enjoy!
