Crochet Elf c2c Graph Pattern

My second Christmas graph is an Elf. Did you know that Elves became linked with Santa Claus in the 1823 poem known today as "The Night Before Christmas"? In that poem, Santa Claus is referred to as a "jolly old elf". Today, we think of elves like they are depicted in the movie Elf  (one of our family's favorites!); working hard in the North Pole making toys for children.

These square graphs are the perfect size for baby loveys, pillow covers (although I'd recommend going down a hook size to an H/5mm), one square of a larger blanket, one side of a tote bag, or as wall art (just add a dowel rod and hang it up!).

Please share pictures with me on Instagram or Facebook. I love to see your creations!

Pattern for starting from bottom right to 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. I chained 6 to start each new row and I chained 3 at the beginning of each square.

Crochet Elf c2c Graph Pattern

Border

blanket crochet pattern letter c

Picture is from my Letter A Square.

I decided that I wanted to have a thin border around each square. Not only do I think each square would look nicer, it will also make it easier to sew the squares together (you'll just match up the stitches!) if you choose to do so.

After completing the last square, continue crocheting around the border of your graph with your white yarn. In each corner you will work a (sc-ch 1-sc) and in the side of each square you will make two sc.
