Crab Graph

JULY 3, 2019

I thought it would be fun to design a blanket made from sea animal graphs. You can stitch the four animals together to create an adorable summer afghan, or, attach an individual graph to a dowel rod and hang it on the wall for some adorable wall art!

Follow me on Instagram and tag me in your photos. I love to see your creations!

My completed square measures 21.5" by 21.5".

8 pixel squares= 4 inches

- You can choose to follow the pixel graph or the written instructions.
- Crochet the pixel graph using the corner-to-corner (c2c) technique. Use the traditional method of making three double crochets for each square.
- Chain 5 to start each new row and chain 2 at the beginning of each square.

Crochet hook: 7/4.5mm

Yarn: worsted weight in white, black, red, maroon & blue.

*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.

Attach your blue yarn. In each corner you will work a (hdc-ch 2-hdc) and for each edge of the square you will (hdc-ch 1) between each of the individual "tiles" (the small squares that make up the entire graph).
