Farm Animals Blanket
AUGUST 19, 2021
My latest corner to corner animal blanket is this Farm Animals themed graphgan! I added a Spike Stitch border with the hopes that it would look like a fence. Let me know what you think over on Instagram!
If you're not up to the task of crocheting six animal graphs, you could easily turn any of the c2c crochet blanket squares into a crochet pillow. Just follow the instructions from my Fox pattern.
These fun & free corner to corner animal blanket squares are perfect for beginner crocheters. They are fairly small and don't use too many colors.
Whether you crochet the baby blanket or just a pillow, I think it would be a fun crochet gift for a farm animal loving child, friend or family member. It would also make an awesome baby shower gift for a farm animal themed nursery. I hope you like my pattern!

- You can choose to follow the pixel graph or the written instructions.
- Written instructions are for working from the bottom right corner to the top left.
- Crochet the pixel graph using the corner-to-corner (c2c) technique. Use the traditional method of making three double crochets for each square.
- Chain 6 to start each new row and chain 3 at the beginning of each square.
The first step to make your crochet baby blanket pattern is to crochet each c2c crochet blanket square. Click on the title or image below to go to that pattern.
After you crochet each c2c crochet blanket square, you'll want to decide how to arrange them. I decided to make my baby blanket two squares wide and three squares long. Make sure all of your animals are facing the right way.
Sew the c2c crochet blanket squares in each row together and then sew the rows together (pics below). Make sure you line up the single crochet stitches from the borders. You can use locking stitch markers to keep the single crochet stitches from the borders lined up.
Weave in all of your loose ends.
I made a Spike Stitch border in brown because I wanted it to look like a fence.
Join your yarn to the single crochet border above a square where the stitches are vertical (up & down).
Chain 1 and make three single crochet stitches. For the fourth stitch, you are going to single crochet into the space between the first and second stitches (they are horizontal and are highlighted in blue in the picture below). This is a spike stitch.
Repeat the process of making three single crochet stitches followed by a spike stitch all the way around the blanket. In the corners you'll chain 2.
