Advanced beginners. This crochet square is made using the corner to corner C2C crochet method. It involves color changes.  

Finished Measurements

My horse square measures just over 13 inches/33 centimeters wide and long.

8 squares (ch 3 + 3 dc) = 4 inches

C2C Crochet Technique

  • The pattern is made using the c2c technique of making “squares” back and forth in diagonal rows starting in the bottom right corner and ending in the top left corner.
  • Each square is made of a chain 3 + 3 double crochet.
  • Chain 6 to start a new row and chain 3 to start a new square.
