Gnome for Christmas C2C Blanket Christmas in July CAL Panel #2 free crochet pattern

Jul 3, 2019 | Crochet patterns

Here is panel #2 of the Gnome for Christmas C2C Blanket in the Christmas in July CAL!

This moose square is one of my favorites in the blanket! And Mr. Moose looks so friendly and fun — I think he is pretty excited about that candy cane Mr. Gnome is waving around! (Head on over to Panel #1 to check out Mr. Gnome!)

This is another square that would look awesome on its own as a pillow or wall hanging — great addition to your Christmas holiday home decor!

If you are not familiar with the Corner to Corner (C2C) technique I have several photo and video tutorials which will help you get up to speed quickly. So you too can make this adorable blanket! Just click on any of the links provided below to head on over to the tutorials.
