Intro to C2C
As of this moment, I have to say that corner to corner or C2C has to be my favorite crochet technique.
I like to think of C2C as making and connecting little squares.
And, of course, given the name corner to corner it is crocheted from one corner to the other. It can also be made in squares or rectangles.
One of my favorite ways to use C2C is to use Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn in a striped or print colorway and make baby blankets. Here’s one of my favorite colorways called Blossomopolis
You can easily make your project as big or little as you want, I’ll show you how to increase and decrease.

How to Corner to Corner Increase
You will start by making 1 square and each row you increase will add 1 additional square per row.
Step 1: chain 6
Step 2: double crochet in the 4th chain from hook and in the next 2 chain stitches.
1 square made. Row 1 complete.
Step 3: (starting row 2) chain 6
Step 4: double crochet in 4th chain from hook and in the next 2 ch stitches.
Step 5: Turn piece and slip stitch into the ch 3 space
Step 6: chain 3
Step 7: 3 double crochet in chain 3 space
You have now completed row 2. Continue repeating steps 3-7 for each additional row.
When your project is as big as you’d like, you can start decreasing.
How to Corner to Corner Decrease
Basically, when you start to decrease on C2C, you will be eliminating one square per row.
Step 1: ch 3
Step 2: turn and slip stitch into chain 3 space
Step 3: chain 3, 3 double crochet into chain 3 space
Step 4: slip stitch into the next chain 3 space and repeat step 3
Step 5: Continue repeating steps 3 & 4 until you reach the very last square and end the row with a slip stitch into the chain 3 space
Repeat steps 1-5 to continue decreasing each row.
So, this is the very basics of corner to corner. I hope y’all found this tutorial helpful and remember, if y’all ever have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. 🙂
