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.

Materials Needed

  • Crochet Hook Size: G-6 4 mm
  • Yarn: Worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Yarns 24/7 Cotton in white and navy.
  • Fiber fill: Use this if you’re making a tooth fairy pillow.
  • Yarn needle: Use this to weave in your ends.
  • Scissors: Use scissors to fasten off your yarn.
  • Stitch marker(s): Optional. Use these to help keep track of your stitches.
