c2c Video Tutorial

I have a corner to corner (c2c) video tutorial on my YouTube channel to help you get started if you are new to this crochet method. 

Note: In the tutorial I chain 5 for a new row and chain 2 for a new square. I no longer do that. I prefer to chain 6 for a new row and chain 3 for a new square.

  • Yarn needle: Use this to weave in your ends.
