Corner to Corner (C2C) Technique

Corner to corner (c2c) crochet is a technique where you crochet “squares” in diagonal rows, starting in one corner (usually the bottom right) and ending in the opposite corner (usually the top left).

Each row is increased by one square. Each square in the graph = chain 3 + 3 double crochet. You can follow a pixel graph or the written instructions. I always provide both options for my C2C patterns.

C2C Increases

Increases are made at the end of each row. To make an increase you will chain 6, DC in the 4th chain from your hook and DC 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 Decreases

The first decreases for both the width and length will create the corners of your project. To make a decrease, when you reach the end of the row, you will 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.
