Presenting Panel #4 in the Gnome for Christmas C2C Blanket part of the Christmas in July CAL at Nana’s Crafty Home!

Gnome for Christmas C2C Blanket Christmas in July CAL Panel #4 free crochet pattern

Of all the panels in my Gnome for Christmas Blanket, I think this one is the most likely to be found made into a pillow or as a wall hanging! As much as possible I tried to make each panel a “stand alone” panel that could be used in a multitude of ways but being a full scene made it difficult to do. However, this little guy embodies the Christmas Gnome vibe I was going for.

Lots of great color in this panel which really makes this one stand out and shine. And have I mentioned how much I am in love with the vibrant hues of the Paintbox Simply Aran yarn yet? ?. All of these colors just go together beautifully!

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.
