If you haven’t heard of c2c crochet before, today is the day to dive a little deeper. The c2c meaning, for beginners, is corner-to-corner crochet.
A c2c crochet pattern is worked in little squares or tiles in a diagonal formation. You increase each row by one tile until you reach your desired width and length.
This method is used to make graphgans a lot of times because it’s so simple to change the colors and map designs out. You do work with several skeins at once, so it’s something new you’ll have to pick up.
To succeed in this method, you need to know how to increase and how to decrease. You’ll also need to know how to read charts. If you’re looking for a tutorial, check out Make & Do Crew here so you can work on all these fun patterns.
Don’t worry lefties. You can work a corner to corner crochet pattern too. Here’s a tutorial for left-handed c2c crochet.
This method opens up a world of possibilities for crocheters. Whether you’re looking for crochet for beginners or you’re an experienced crafter looking for a new challenge, anyone can do c2c.
Check out some of my favorite corner to corner patterns below. Each one is unique and beautifully creative.
