If you would like to learn the corner to corner (c2c) crochet method to make this tooth crochet pattern, check out my online c2c course.

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. 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.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is corner to corner crochet?

C2C crochet, which stands for “Corner-to-Corner” crochet, is a popular crochet technique used to create square or rectangular pieces with a textured, pixelated design.

It begins at one corner and works diagonally to the opposite corner, with each row increasing or decreasing in size as you build your project.

This method is often used to make graphghans, which are blankets or projects featuring detailed images, patterns, or motifs created by changing colors at specific points in the design.

This technique is loved by crocheters for its versatility and the ability to create intricate and visually appealing designs.

How to start a c2c pattern?

Your first c2c square is also your first row. To make your first square, make a slip knot and chain 6.

Double crochet (dc) in the 4th chain from the hook and in the two remaining chains. You will have your first “square”.

Each row is increased by one square until you reach the full width and length of the square.

How to c2c decrease?

The first decreases for both the width and length 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.

How to finish a c2c project?

Make the last square of your c2c project and fasten off your yarn.

Weave in the yarn ends on the backside of your project using a yarn needle.

If desired, you can block your project to even out stitches, improve drape, and shape it to your liking.
