Ocean Animals Blanket
My latest corner to corner animal blanket is this Ocean Animals themed graphgan! I added a scallop trim border with the hopes that it would look like waves. Let me know what you think over on Instagram!
Each of the 6 crochet animals is a c2c crochet blanket square. Pictured top to bottom and left to right, the animals are: Turtle, Jellyfish, Octopus, Whale, Seahorse & Fish.
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 an ocean animal loving child, friend or family member. It would also make an awesome baby shower gift for an ocean 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 markersto keep the single crochet stitches from the borders lined up.
Weave in all of your loose ends.
Now it’s time to add your scallop trim border!
Join your yarn. I used Blue and Minty.
Round 1: Ch 2, make 1 hdc in each stitch. In each corner you will want to make 2 hdc to “turn” the corner.
Round 2: ch 2, *skip a st, 4 dc in next st, skip a st, slip st in next st* (repeat between the * all the way around), join, fasten off and weave in ends.
You are done! I hope you enjoyed this pattern. Tag me on Instagram (@lovable_loops) or Facebook to share your pictures with me.
