UPDATE: I put together a corner to corner crochet video tutorial with lots of tips for beginners which you can find here. This photo tutorial on how to read a c2c graph and this tutorial on how to change colors and keep your yarn under control might be helpful as well! You can find all my free c2c crochet patterns here.

This little deer has been frolicking around in my brain since I learned how to do corner to corner crochet (c2c) last year. I figured an iconic deer silhouette blanket is one of the few corner to corner crochet designs that’s equally at home in a baby nursery, dorm room or man cave. I mean, how many of your crochet projects can you say that about!?

I had so much fun choosing the colors for this ombre afghan. I don’t often gravitate toward blue, but there are so many gorgeous blues in Vanna’s Choice yarn that I just decided to order myself a giant blue yarn cloud.

If this palette doesn’t suit you or your decor though, there are a bundle of beautiful pinks/reds as well as shades of green in Vanna’s Choice that I think would create a fantastic ombre effect as well.

If you’ve never worked corner to corner crochet before, do not fear! This week, I shared a step-by-step tutorial on how to c2c for beginners that will get you started. You’ll also want to check out my tutorial on how to change colors in c2c crochet to learn how to “paint” your beautiful ombre deer out of yarn! And this beginner corner to corner crochet video tutorial is a must watch to get the hang of working the corner to corner stitch.

And if you’ve worked c2c, but never to create a graphgan before, this c2c deer is pretty good one to start with. (You can see my first one here. It was a wee bit ambitious!) The large sections of color mean that the color changes are more approachable and you’ll get plenty of practice before you reach the antlers, which are a little more detailed.

But, I wanted to offer instructions for those crocheters who work best from a written pattern instead of a graph. So in the printable ad-free PDF, you’ll get the graph, the row-by-row instructions as well as a complete printable tutorial on c2c crochet in case you’re unfamiliar with the technique. (You can purchase the PDF here!)

• To work this corner to corner graph, begin with the pixel (tile) in the lower right corner. This will correspond to Row 1 in the written pattern.
• Each pixel in the graph corresponds with one tile in your afghan. A tile = 3 ch (the tch) + 3 dc
• It can be extremely helpful to cross off each row in the graph and/or written pattern as you work it.
• For additional C2C instruction, check out my post on How to Corner to Corner Crochet and How to Change Colors in C2C.

Adding a Border

Once final tile is completed, rotate afghan so RS is facing. Work border stitches loosely enough that they don’t cause the afghan to pucker. Increase your hook size if necessary.

Round 1: Ch 1, work 2 sc into each tile around afghan placing [2 sc, 2 ch, 2 sc] in each corner tile, sl st to first sc of round to join.

Round 2: Ch 1, sc in each sc working [sc, ch 1, sc] in each ch-2 corner space, sl st to first sc of round to join. Fasten off.

    I’m just curious on a couple things.
    1) with the main color how many rolls did you use?
    2) with the other 6 colors, about how much did you use from each roll?
    just trying to figure out if I have the yarn for it.

      Hey Sam,

      I used 6 skeins for the main color and then about 1/3-1/2 of a skein of each color. So maybe about 70-90 yards per color.

      Happy crocheting!

      The smaller graph is free. The larger graph and the line by line instructions are included in the paid printable PDF. I usually just share a free graph for my c2c patterns, but this time I spent a few hours writing up the line by line instructions because I know some people like to work that way.

    Beautiful afghan! I am thinking I would like to make the larger size BUT would like to skip the ombre coloring and use only dark brown to simply make it look like a silhouette. What is your opinion on this? Thank you for your advice and lovely pattern!

      Hey Theresa,

      I think that would work out great. It would also whiz by because you wouldn’t have to sort out any color changes. There are a lot of great browns in the Vanna’s Choice line, so you could even do a brown ombre if that suited you.

      I’d love to see what you make if you’d like to share a pic when you finish!

      Assuming you cut your yarn when necessary and crochet over the tails or weave the in, it should look identical to the front, just reversed.

    The graph you’ve posted doesn’t match your sample afghan… the spaces between the antlers, the shape of the ears, where the color changes appear on the head… they’re all different.
    A friend of mine made the afghan and is so disappointed that it looks so different from what she was expecting.

      Hey there,

      I’m a little confused by your feedback. The graph that’s linked in the supplies section of this pattern is the exact graph I used to create the sample. If you look square by square, I think you’ll see that it’s the same. The larger size graph, which is included in the printable pattern as a bonus is also the exact same deer, only with extra linen space around the deer head. Assuming she made hers with double crochet c2c, she should have ended up with an afghan that looks very similar to the one pictured.

      Perhaps your friend would like to send me a photo so I can better understand what you’re referencing.

      Thanks.

    I saw this posted on Moogly’s Hookin’ on Hump Day #140 and immediately fell in love with it! My husband, son, and daughter all think it’s very cool, too. My daughter is getting a room makeover and asked if I would make this in her new room colors. It’s going to have a gray background and shades of teal and blue for the deer, so it will be similar to yours. I’ve never done C2C before, so I’m excited to try something new. Thanks for all the work you put into writing the pattern – I am very much a written pattern follower, but the graph and photos look like they will be super helpful as well. The small fee is well worth it since this is a new process for me and I want to make the larger size. Thanks again for sharing!

      Hey Lindsey,

      Thanks so much for purchasing my pattern. 🙂

      Is this the first point that you had the incorrect number of little tiles? Did you have the correct number at the end of row 62 when you started decreasing? I’m wondering if maybe you’d only been decreasing on one side and therefore more tiles than you need? If I were you, I’d lay out the blanket and just count the squares in a few places to see if I could pinpoint where things went wrong. (Compare it to the graph as you go.) If you’d like to email me a photo, I might be able to help you by looking at it as well.

      Hope that sorts it out for you!

    I printed out the free graph and it has a mistake, I thought I had made a mistake (devastated) then looked at the graph and it’s wrong on there, I’m almost finished so there’s no way of fixing it, it’s just one square but I’ll always see it now, number 16 across and 26 up (corner of the top of right ear) is coloured green and should be white! Awesome pattern though but thought I’d point it out for other perfectionists!

    HI Jess,
    I purchased this pattern as I really loved how it looked and am fairly new to C2C. I am doing the baby size and am on row 49 where I would start decreasing on both sides. I am finding that the blanket is looking very square and would like to make it taller. Would it work to continue decreasing on the width end but increasing on the height end until I reach the desired height? or will that make it lopsided?
    Thank you for your help!!

      Hey,

      It should be a little taller than square when you finish. Unfortunately, there’s not really a way to change the shape of the c2c pattern once you start it, but you could definitely add a border that’s taller at the top and bottom than at the sides.

      Happy crocheting!

    Hi Jess I loved your pattern and did it in the larger size using DK yarn and a 3mm hook. It turned out smaller than you stated but I didn’t mind that but I have a problem. My work is lopsided, I did the decrease ok and followed the pattern exactly the way it read but I’m so disappointed it didn’t turn out an exact rectangle. Please try and tell me where I’ve went wrong. I can send you pictures if you like. Many thanks Sharon

      Hey Sharon,

      I have two thoughts. 🙂 One is that you can count the little square tiles on each side and make sure that you have the same number on the right and left and the same number on the top and bottom. If you don’t, that’ll tell you that you got off track somewhere during your crocheting.

      Secondly though, I’ve often found that my c2c projects are slightly angled like a diamond and sort of stretched leaning to one side when I finish. I block them lightly by pinning them to the carpet (on top of a towel) and the lightly steaming the yarn with spritzes of steam from the iron. (This is for acrylic yarn–just be sure to never touch the iron to the yarn because it will melt!)

      I hope one of those suggestions help you figure out what’s going on. I’m guessing it’s beautiful even with a little lopsidedness! 🙂

    Hello!! I purchased the larger pattern and I’m stuck on row 51. I’ve got the right amount of tiles up until I get to the last one. If I add the last tile, it makes 51, not 50. What am I doing wrong? I’ve ripped out a few rows and re-did them. No luck!

      Hey Danielle,

      Oh man, I have sure been there. It’s frustrating isn’t it? Without seeing your afghan, I’m not exactly sure. What I’ve done in the past when this has happened to me though is to count the rows vertically and horizontally near the problem row to see if I can figure out when a tile suddenly appeared or disappeared. I hope that’s helpful!

      It sounds like you’re having trouble decreasing? If that’s indeed the case, a this tutorial might be a helpful resource. If there’s something else in the pattern that’s causing an issue with row 51/52, please let me know!

        I love this pattern and am making the throw size for my dad for his birthday (he is an avid hunter). I am confused on row 52. It says to decrease first tile and at the end I should have 50 tiles. I have counted and recounted and still end up with 51 tiles. Please help! I have about a week to finish it. TIA

          That sounds like a wonderful gift! It sounds like maybe you’re not actually decreasing in that first tile? It might help to take a look at the graph and count the number of tiles you should be creating in each color against what you actually have. That’s usually my best way of decoding where I’ve went wrong. 🙂

          Happy birthday to your dad!

            Jess, on the pattern you still have (Inc) at the beginning of Row 51. You need to change it to (Dec) and then it works to come out with 50 squares.

            Hey B,

            The reason the inc is at the beginning of Row 51 is because you’re still building up the right side of the afghan. Then, stop one tile shy of where you usually do at the end of the row, thereby creating an edge on the left side of the afghan. This should result in 50 tiles. Once you’ve completed the top right corner of the afghan, then each row will begin with a decrease.

            Hope that makes sense.

    Purchased the pdf pattern and am doing the large written pattern. Are there any corrections because the antlers are not matching. I’m almost finished just finished row 77 and just noticed the problem. Very frustrating and a lot of work. But love the pattern. My son would love it if It can be fixed. Thanks

      Hey Florence,

      That does sound really frustrating. I did make some corrections, around May, but none since then. If you’d like to tell me which row you thing is different from the other antler, I’d be happy to check it out. Similarly, cross referencing with the graph might be a faster way to decode what might be going wrong. 🙂

      Do you mean you’re counting 7 on the graph and 8 in the picture? I’m not exactly sure which part you’re referencing. If you’re still having trouble, feel free to send me an email and I’ll try to help! 🙂

    Help! I’m making an afghan that is 50(w)x60(h) and I am unsure of where to my decreasing. Can you clarify? Is it after row 50, beginning 51. Thanks!

    I just wanted to make sure that at the end of row 51 on the big pattern you are supposed to have 17 light tiles? I have taken it out twice and I keep ending up with 18 light tiles. Also, the row 52 says a decrease row and starts with 18 tiles. This is my firstborn c2c and Ia not certain what is going on:)

      Hey Sarah,

      Yes, at the end of row 51 you should indeed have 17 linen tiles. The reason you have 18 in row 52 is because of the little indent on the left side of the deer’s face. (If you’re looking horizontally across the page, it would be aligned with the horizontal stripe of tiles where the # 70 is on the left side of the chart.)

      Hope that makes sense. It’s a little hard to explain in writing. 🙂

    I have spent a lot of time working on this pattern, I made a mistake early on and had to rip out many colors and start again. I am now on row 67 of the smaller free pattern and the antlers look like absolute shit. I mean no disrespect to the designer or the pattern, it is simply the nature of C2C crochet. Because each side is worked differently, each side will look different, and the mismatch looks terrible. This is meant to be a word of caution for other perfectionists such as myself who cannot stand asymmetrical designs. This blanket will now unfortunately be banished to the bottom of my yarn stash never to be completed. It’s a shame really, the picture looked beautiful but I do urge you to ZOOM IN. There are in fact massive imperfections.

      I’m sorry to hear that, Monica. I try to photograph every project to accurately represent the finished end result you can expect. There is an inherent difference in how C2C looks depending on if you’re working a RS or WS row, but that charm is exactly why I prefer handmade over a machine-made afghan from a box store.

      I hope you’re able to find other patterns here that work for you!

    Hi, I hope this message reaches you 🙂
    Love the deer pattern. I purchased the bigger sized pattern a few weeks ago. I’m finally up to the interchangeable inc and dec rows. Everything has been fine up until this point with no missing squares and everything matches the grid. However, I’m wondering if row 52 should read 19L at the very start of the row, as I’ve reached the next two colour changes and they are not matching what the grid looks like. For some reason I now have 51 tiles. I’m not sure how this has happened as in row 51 there was nothing amiss with any of the squares/colour changes.I have dec at the start of row 52 like it reads. Hoping you can help. Thanks! 🙂

      Hey Eli,

      I’m sorry I didn’t respond sooner. I’ve been sick for the last week! I actually just updated the printable pattern with a slight change around Row 51. If you haven’t already figured it out, I’d go back to your LoveCrochet.com library and download the newest version of the pattern. If you have any trouble at all, just email me and I’ll make sure you get it. Jess (at) makeanddocrew (dot) com

    Hi again 🙂 Carrying on from my last comment – I pulled out the rows up until row 50. I re-read the instructions that say up until row 50 there will be the same number of tiles as the row number. So I’m confused when I get to row 51, it says to increase. If I increase, I’m adding an extra tile, which brings the title count to 51 (not 50 total tiles) as the pattern states. Am I missing something? I’m going crazy trying to find where I’m going wrong.

    I’m looking through the comments and found your reply –
    “The reason the inc is at the beginning of Row 51 is because you’re still building up the right side of the afghan. Then, stop one tile shy of where you usually do at the end of the row, thereby creating an edge on the left side of the afghan. This should result in 50 tiles. Once you’ve completed the top right corner of the afghan, then each row will begin with a decrease.”

    Does this mean when I increase at the start of row 51 and get to the end, I don’t do anything at the very last tile, and turn my work and continue on with row 52 and decrease? If I do this, it still doesn’t look right.
    Thanks for your help.

      Hey Eli,

      I think I’m understanding your question. 🙂 The problem may lie in the fact that I think you might have worked one additional tile at the end of row 51. So in that row, if you increase at the beginning, you’ll stop one tile short of where you would normally end. This should create 50 total tiles (you added one at the beginning and took one away at the end, therefore keeping the same number.)

      Then at the beginning of 52, you’ll just sl st up the side of it and begin the “decrease” stitch explained in the pattern instead of an increase. When you get to the end of row 52, you’ll work to the point you were working previously, so you’ll be increasing one stitch at the end of the row. This is what will make the rectangle grow taller without increasing in width.

      This is what Row 52 should read:
      → Row 52 [WS]: L18, (AM) x 2, A6, (PK) x 5, L2, S3, L3, S, N2, L8

      Does that all make sense? Watching this video might help too because I touch on how to create a rectangle vs a square.

I also have tried in past to leave a comment here on another pattern of yours and never received any reply. I am a bit disappointed in the written pattern on this especially since I paid for it. Hope to hear from you soon.
