Corner-to-Corner Blanket in Half Double Crochet

Snowflake Corner-to-corner blanketCorner-to-Corner (C2C) blankets are a hot trend right now. I recently posted about my Snowflake C2C Blanket (a FREE pattern on Red Heart Yarn’s website) and today I am sharing with you the basics on how to make a corner-to-corner blanket in half double crochet.

If you read the post about my Snowflake blanket you will know that the two C2C blankets that I designed are in half double crochet stitches vs. the common double crochet stitches. I chose to use half double crochet stitches because I thought that they looked better with the design and my gauge. You can change either of these patterns to use double crochet stitches but this will require you to use more yarn and will look slightly different, so make sure you swatch first.

In my corner-to-corner basics tutorial video you will learn the technique for a square pattern. I break down how to read a C2C chart and where to place your stitches. The video will show you how to increase and decrease squares to adjust the size. I will be releasinRed Heart Corner-to-Corner Heart Throb Blanketg a video soon to show you how to work this in a rectangle. Check out my YouTube channel for other tutorials and subscribe so you know when this new video is available.

After you watch the video you can try some of the FREE patterns on Red Heart’s website including my Snowflake Corner-to-Corner Afghan (the pattern also has a video tutorial) and my Heart Throb Blanket. Don’t forget to add your finished
projects to their Ravelry page. If you need more help beyond my tutorial you can view Sarah Zimmerman’s Corner-to-Corner class on Annie’s.
