“ A little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference.” —Eeyore
Welcome back to block three of our woeful buddy Eeyore in a series of four graph patterns, for a Winnie the Pooh themed baby blanket. As I mentioned in the first post for the Winnie the Pooh block, I finished creating these graphs almost a year ago, but am just now able to post them due to coronavirus imposed vacation. This Eeyore quote above is so appropriate for the current state of the world, mid-pandemic. It’s been a trying time for everyone, and I think we can all say that consideration for others has been at the top of our thoughts for weeks on end.
This pattern uses the corner to corner (C2C) method to create the blanket picture. I won’t write it out step by step or create another tutorial, but I will direct you to Repeat Crafter Me‘s C2C tutorial video HERE or to Crochet Crowd‘s video HERE. Both are excellent tutorials that I used to learn this method.
Here is a picture of the finished block:

Pooh Bear and Friends Baby Blanket – Eeyore
Skill level: Intermediate
- sl st – slip stitch
- ch – chain
- sc – single crochet
- dc – double crochet
Yarn – I Love This Cotton, colors: Pink, Black, White,Pewter, Aqua, Dove, Ivory
Crochet hook G (4.0mm) – I used my favorite Clover Amour hook
Please note: only Eeyore’s eyes are white, the other white areas are supposed to be done in the same Aqua background color as the first two blocks. Designer fail!
Start in either the top right or bottom right of the pattern, whatever your preference is. Use the corner to corner method to complete the graph. After completing the last corner (using the Aqua background color) do not finish off.
Row 1: ch 1, sc all along the first edge, evenly spacing your stitches. I used 2 sc into the side of each square and 1 sc into the space between squares. In each corner, 1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc, then repeat around entire square. Slip stitch into first sc, fasten off.
Row 2: join with white yarn, sc into each stitch all along first edge. In each corner, 1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc, then repeat around entire square.
Row 3: ch 2, dc into each stitch all along first edge. In each corner, 1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc, then repeat around entire square. Fasten off.
Stay tuned for week four – I will be sharing the last block, and then I will share the finished blanket and joining method!
