Corner to corner blanket

Just beginning first colour stripes
I saw a photo and a post on Facebook from someone who was just finishing her C2C crocheted blanket. I was intrigued I love crochet but had no idea what a C2C blanket was. After some internet research I discovered that it simply meant corner to corner and that's exactly what you do. You start with 1 block of crochet and increase on every row until it is the size you want, decrease on every row until you are back to one and finally add a border, that's all there is to it.

I am always keen to try new things and here is my first attempt the photos show my progress stage by stage. 

I made this first one using a free pattern from www.redheart.com  in cream,coffee,minty green and yellow DK yarn using a 5mm hook. The finished blanket measures approx. 28" square. This pattern is easily adjusted to any size you choose.
I am absolutely delighted with the results it's so easy why didn't I know about it before. I have finished a second one and started a third. You could say "I am now hooked on C2C"

Halfway it's all down hill
from now

All done needs blocking.
Very happy with the result.

Teddy loves it 


  1. Your blanket looks great! I like corner-to-corner projects too but have only made knitted things using this technique. I'm currently working on a small knitted corner-to-corner cushion cover. Thanks for the pattern recommendation - maybe I'll have a go at it, although I'm still a beginner at crochet!

    1. Thank you and best of luck it really is quite easy once you get going.
