How to c2c Crochet

Corner to corner (c2c) crochet is a technique where you crochet “squares” in diagonal rows. You start in the bottom right corner and end in the top left corner.

Each row is increased by one square until you reach the width & length. Each square in the graph = chain 3 + 3 double crochet.

c2c Crochet Increases

Increases are made at the end of each row of your crochet baby blanket. Chain 6 and DC in the 4th chain from the hook and in each of the 2 remaining chains.

You will have a chain 3 + 3 DC square. This is your first square for the beginning of the next row. Turn your work and join with a slip stitch to the chain 3 space from the last square made. 

c2c Crochet Decreases

The first decreases for both the width and length of your crochet baby blanket will create corners.

To decrease, turn your work and slip stitch across the 3 DC’s in the last square made. Join with a slip stitch to the chain 3 space and chain 3 + 3 DC.
