Baby, It’s Cold Outside C2C Graphghan

The Baby It’s Cold Outside blanket is a brand new addition to the Holiday Graphgan collection I started last year.  After making four large graphghans using the corner to corner method I decided to switch it up this time and use a brand new technique, the mini corner to corner method. This new technique creates a more dense and sturdy fabric compared to the traditional C2C. It creates a smaller sized throw that is perfect for snuggling up with during those cold winter evenings.
