Corner to Corner (C2C) Crochet
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.
How to Corner to Corner Increase
Increases are made at the end of each row. Chain 6 and DC in the 4th chain from the hook and 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.
How to Corner to Corner 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.
