Corner 2 Corner Crochet for Beginners

Posted in : Crochet on by : Carrie Wente

I’m always looking for new stitches to mix things up. The latest one I found to play with is the corner to corner or c2c pattern. Here’s a step by step tutorial to start and then decrease the corner to corner crochet stitch. Once you get into the rhythm of it, the stitch works up fairly quickly. When you get a few rows done, you will see that the pattern works into a tile. You will literally be working from one corner to the opposite corner, and not line by line or row by row as in traditional crochet.
