New Year is coming and we share a wonderful blanket pattern for you.
Do you recall? The most famous Reindeer of all?! Yes, it’s Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer peeking out of
the corner of this cute C2C (corner-to-corner) blanket! I know we only have about a month until Christmas,
but this pattern is pretty easy because there aren’t a whole lot of complicated color changes. I actually
didn’t have that many ends to weave in!
The finished size is approximately 35 inches x 32 inches. This is great lapghan or childs blanket size but you
could absolutely make it biggerif you wanted to by increasing the border or using DC stitches instead of
the HDC stitches that I used.
I used the Corner-to-Corner(C2C) method to crochet the graph.
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
blanket and tighter stitches but you can absolutely use DC stitches if that is more comfortable for you!

UPDATE TO ADD:
Fellow crocheter Jennifer Burgard has graciously taken the time to write out all the
color changes in an easy-to-follow PDF!
Sample of page of 1 of the written color change pattern is below Thanks so much Jennifer!
After you have finished the main blanket, you can choose to add a border orleave without a border as
With green, SC between between “squares” on edge and chain two in-between. So you will SC chain 2
SC all the way around, making a SC Chain 2 SC all in one stitch in each corner.
Then with green, make 2 HDC in each chain 2 space all the way around the blanket. Make 2 HDC chain 2
2 HDC in each corner.
Forthe lastround of the border, switch to red yarn and SC in each stitch around making 2 SC Chain 2 2
SC in each corner. Fasten off and weave in ends!
