This listing is for a PDF crochet pattern only and not the finished item. All patterns are also posted for free on Turn your work and repeat until you get down to one block at the corner opposite the beginning of your work. When you reach the halfway point, you’ll decrease one block at a time until you get back down to one block on the opposite corner. As soon as you’ve reached the widest/tallest point in your graph, use the C2C decrease stitch until one single tile remains. You’ll increase by one tile per diagonal row until your desired dimension are reached then you’ll begin decreasing.

You can do this by “carrying” the yarn over to the next section where you’ll use it. To carry the yarn, lay the old color parallel to the row you’re working on and crochet over it to hide it. You’ll start by making the first tile, which will become the bottom-right corner of your project. Then, you’ll work back and forth in diagonal rows, increasing on each side until you reach the widest part of the project. C2C crochet is also a great way to use up scraps of yarn.

Slip stitch into the ch-3-sp from the previous row. Chain stitches are used in a turning chain to start each row. Make your first swatch along with me, and you’ll get a good grasp of the basic concept. You’ll be ready for your first real C2C project with just a little practice.

This is not a sponsored post, I like to build my yarn stash during salesonline. Finally, Section 3 is the decrease section that works back down to your bind off corner. You work decreases on both edges of your pizza places in el cajon knitting until you reach 4 stitches. I started crocheting in hopes to become a grandma and was only writing down my patterns to remember what I was making. I shared them on a small blog, and on Instagram.

Continue changing colors every 8 rows and continue the rows of decrease. If you can believe it, this blanket starts with 2 chains. So super nice when you’re just not in the mood to count out a long starting chain. We do, but not all the blankets have tutorials. Most of our patterns are beginner friendly.

Instead of working back and forth in rows, C2C is crocheted diagonally from one corner of a square or rectangle to the opposite corner and back again. Half double crochet is denser and will pull together a bit tighter. However, if you are following an existing diagram in double crochet format, expect your project to be smaller as the stitches are not as tall. Repeat the last row, effectively decreasing on both sides. From here on out, everything is exactly the same as the decrease section of the square tutorial.

At the end of the row, we’re going to switch back to the increase pattern (since this is the “increase” side of our rectangle). At the end of the row, we’re going to switch to the decreasing pattern. In the final ch 1 space, sc and then do NOT ch 1. Instead, we’re going to immediately work the next stitch in the ch 3 space. When you work a square in c2c crochet you will begin decreasing on the same row. The C2C technique is very fun once you understand the basics.

Graph patterns typically begin in the bottom right corner, regardless of if you’re right or left handed. Half double crochet in each remaining chain. Here though we’re specifically talking about stitches that are worked in the typical C2C method.
