Some of the yarns used for this square pattern were provided by Red Heart Yarns. Crochet Hook provided by Furls Crochet.

My little girls told me that this racoon is one of the cutest animals featured in the blanket.

I found all of them cute, all of them are my creations, so I can’t decide which one(s) I like better. You know - as if you would be asked to say which one of your kids you love the most. :) I just love them all!

The pattern for this Racoon C2C Square includes written row by row instructions for color counts follow with color pixel graph below.

For detailed instructions + Video Tutorial of the C2C method with the hdc, but also Tips + Video Tutorial for Crisp Color Changes, please check out the WILDLIFE GRAPGHAN CAL PAGE!


GAUGE: 6 C2C tiles = 10 x 10 cm (4 inches x 4 inches)

SIZE: the square is 25 tiles x 25 tiles and approx. measures approx. 16 inches X 16 inches (40 cm x 40 cm)

Raccon C2C Square - Free Crochet Pattern

1. You will use the C2C with the hdc, working the square on the diagonal starting from bottom right corner to top left.

2. The even rows will be worked on the right side of work.

3. The uneven rows will be on the wrong side of work.

4. On the graphic you will read the even rows from top to bottom ↙ and the uneven rows from bottom to top ↗!

5. The first row with color changes (Row 9) it's an uneven row, so you will be working on the wrong side of work! That means that you will have to place the yarn strands to the front of your work!

6. For the even rows (right side) you will place the yarns to the back of the work!

- RS: right side
- WS: wrong side

Color abbreviations: (See the color legend in the graph at the end of this post)

  • c = Carrot - this is the background color - if you like, you can replace it with any contrasting color of your choice
  • o= Oatmeal
  • bl= black
  • w= white (Soft white)
