Explanation of c2c Stitch

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 opposite top left corner. Each row is increased by one square.

Each square in the graph = chain 3 + 3 double crochet.

Width & Length Corners

Dinosaur Blanket Crochet
The first & last squares for row 40 are the corners.

The first decreases for both the width and length will create corners.

To make a decrease, when you reach the end of the row, you will 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.

Since this Crochet Dinosaur Blanket is a square, you will start decreasing on both ends at the same time.
