Learn how to Graphghan with this super cute bunny wall hanging pattern. It’s been a popular request to make a video tutorial for how to do Graphghans so I hope you enjoy creating this cute pattern whilst you learn how to read and crochet a Graphghan. You may have seen my Corner 2 Corner (C2C) video from many years back which is great for the basics but keep reading if you want to develop your skills further.
You can purchase a low cost ad free, printable copy of this pattern HERE. Not only does it mean you get your own copy of the pattern to print, you also support a small business and help me to keep making free patterns! You also get TWO Bonus patterns, a cushion and baby blanket.

What you will learn
The video tutorial (found at the base of this post) includes how to:
- Read a chart
- Forward plan your bobbins for colour changes
- Increasing your C2C project
- Decreasing your C2C project
- Change colours
Once you have done this and you feel confident to move forwards you can purchase the 14-page PDF pattern for the bunny wall hanging HERE. The Bunny Wall Hanging is an ‘Easy’ pattern pattern to follow! I often have people ask me if patterns are ‘suitable for beginners’ and my answer would always be “Just give it a go!” Honestly, you might surprise yourself.

About Graphghan & C2C (corner to corner crochet)
A corner to corner graph is worked from the bottom right corner and in diagonal lines upwards. This pattern can be worked from the bottom left corner if you are left handed and the pattern will not be affected. Each of the squares in the graph represents one ‘block’. These blocks are colour coded to represent your colour changes.
You will find the written instructions and the visual chart SAMPLE to work along side the video tutorial HERE. The FULL pattern includes the graph, written instructions and colour block instructions so that you can choose which is the best method to read for you. You will need to make sure you are checking your work every few rows as it can be easy to lose track!
Unsure of the differences between UK and US terms? Need a refresher on how to do your crochet stitches? In my ‘How to crochet: A handy reference guide’ EBook I help you with all of these terms and you can always have them to hand! You will also get exclusive access to free video instructions.

I know a lot of you come here for my video tutorials so you can find the assisting video tutorial available in both right and left handed versions below.
When it comes to crocheting a C2C left handed, you will find that your work will come out in a mirror image BUT thats the great thing about C2C..it doesn’t really have a right or wrong side (you just need to think about carrying your yarn on YOUR wrong side).
