Check out this FREE crochet pattern! It’s been a while since I blogged… life has been busy! But I have had a bit of time to do some crocheting, of course. Here is my shark graphghan, which is a graph afghan, made with a pixel chart! The technique is Corner to Corner (C2C) and it was so fun to make!
My inspiration was from this blog post from Repeat Crafter Me, her work is so inspiring I decided to try it out. I needed something for my little toddler boy’s bedroom, which has some shark sheets and a shark stool already. So I grabbed a couple colors of Bernat Blanket yarn to use and got to work designing a pixel graph to use! I’m pretty excited about the end result, and the info below is a rough pattern using the Corner-to-Corner C2C technique to construct. There are lots of details on the linked blog!
- 7 mm crochet hook
- 5 balls of Bernat Maker yarn (2 blue, 2 grey, 1 white)
- Tapestry needle
- ch – chain
- sc – single crochet
- dc – double crochet
- sl st – slip stitch
Use the graph below to construct the C2C blanket using the linked instructions from Repeat Crafter Me’s blog post. When it’s complete, do 2 rounds sc around the edge in grey and then 2 rounds sc in white, fasten off and weave in the loose ends. It took me about 2.5 hours to weave in the ends afterwards, making sure I pulled them tight prior to weaving them in so that there weren’t any gaps.
And that’s all there is to it! You can do any picture you want with this fast and easy technique! And it’s reversible, so the picture is on both sides and the stitches look identical. So fun!
