I had so much fun designing and crocheting this corner to corner (c2c) crochet Christmas blanket! It includes four different animals dressed up in different holiday styles. It’s colorful, adorable, and fun to make.
Animals in the C2C Crochet Christmas Blanket Pattern
From top to bottom and left to right the animals are a llama, sloth, reindeer and a French Bulldog. Which is your favorite? Let me know over on Instagram! I love all of them but I think the reindeer is my favorite. Then again, I really love crochet llama patterns so maybe it’s the llama. It’s so hard to choose isn’t it?!
Blankets, Wall Art, and More
If you’re not up to the task of crocheting four animal graphs, you could easily turn any of the c2c crochet Christmas blanket graphs into wall art. Simply use the appropriate graph to crochet the one animal panel that you want to use. Then hang that on the wall. This is art that you might enjoy just during the holidays or perhaps even well into the new year.
Start Your Christmas Gifts Now
Whether you crochet the Christmas blanket or just one of the animals, it could be a fun crochet Christmas gift for a friend or family member. Don’t wait until the last minute (again?!) to start thinking about Christmas. Instead, start working on the C2C Crochet Christmas Blanket now so that you’re all ready when it sneaks back up on your again.

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 animal, you’ll want to decide how to arrange them. Make sure your animals are facing the right way.
Sew the c2c crochet blanket graphs 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.
Join your red yarn. Chain 2 and make 1 half double crochet (hdc) in each stitch. In each corner you will want to make 2 hdc in the chain 2 space from the single crochet border.
