I’m so excited to be sharing the second Holiday Graphgan pattern with you today! If you haven’t seen the first one you can find it here. One of the best things about the holiday season is all the fun songs! Joy To The World is one of my favorites and I knew it would look so good as a blanket.

One of my testers suggested a navy and white color combo and I jumped at the chance to use it. Again I used LionBrand’s Pound of Love because you just can’t beat the cost for how much yarn you get. I used just over 4 skeins of Navy and the leftover White from my ‘Tis The Season Graphgan. Pound of Love comes in plenty of unique colors so there are numerous color combos to choose from.

If you are new to the corner to corner method you can check out my tutorial about how to corner to corner that I posted last week. There is also another post dedicated just to changing colors so you know exactly how to create the perfect graphgan.

Below you will find the downloadable graph for the Joy To The World graphgan. If you prefer a written out pattern you can purchase the ad-free PDF in my shop. The PDF includes written instructions, two sizes of graphs and a photo tutorial on basic corner to corner technique.

To add a border to your holiday graphgan attach yarn in the color of your choice to the center of one of the sides with the right side of the blanket facing you.
