How to Corner to Corner Crochet
Corner to corner crochet, also known as c2c, is a crochet pattern that works from one corner (usually bottom right). You will increase stitches until you have the width and height for the project you are working. Then you will decrease until you reach the opposite corner (usually top left).
Many corner-to-corner patterns use colorwork to make pictures and/or words. It’s also great for self-striping yarn and even just a solid textured look.

The instructions below are for a basic c2c pattern and do not include any color changes. Once you get the hang of the stitches adding color changes is fairly easy.
