### What is Corner to Corner (C2C)

Crochet C2C (Corner to Corner) is a basic technique similar to granny squares that allows you to create a textured and tiled fabric by working diagonally from one corner to another, usually from the bottom right to the top left corner. It involves working clusters of chain 2 or 3 and 3 double crochet stitches into a grid-like pattern. With each row, you increase one cluster square.

Once you get the hang of this super easy technique the possibilities are endless on things you can make with the crochet C2C (corner-to-corner) technique. You can create things such as blankets, scarves, shawls, bags, and even home decor items like pillows, rugs, and wall hangings. This technique is so versatile that can be used with different types of yarn and colours to create unique and personalized crochet projects.

**PATTERN EXPLANATION:**

- This is a Corner 2 Corner (C2C) crochet pattern.
- The blanket is worked diagonally from the bottom right corner to the upper left corner. The blanket will have the sheep in the right corner.
- Each block on the graph is 1 square. 1 square consists of Ch 2 and 3 Dc.
- When you reach the first corner (row 40) you will no longer be increasing on that side of your panel. Work a decreased square instead.
- Once you are familiar with C2C I recommend just following the graph to see where your color changes are.
- Each time you change color and tie off, be sure to tie the 2 ends into a knot.
- I would recommend splitting your yarn skein into smaller balls of yarn so that you don’t have to drag the yarn along when you change colors.

##### You can follow the graph images or the written instruction as I supply both in the blog post.
