We love corner to corner crochet, and judging by how popular it's become over the last few years it appears you love it too! The brilliant thing about C2C is that you can create such a huge range of pictorial crochet designs from a relatively basic technique. And it's not just corner to corner blanket patterns that are available, we're seeing designers using C2C crochet in accessory and garment designs too! We've picked 20 of our favourite corner to corner patterns for you to try, including plenty of free crochet patterns - and if you're new to C2C crochet, check out our full tutorial.


Feeling creative - once you've mastered the basics of corner to corner crochet, it's incredibly easy to start customising your own designs. C2C graphs are essentially just a grid of squares, so you can easily make your own C2C graphs with some squared paper. Alternatively, you could try a pixel drawing app or website such as pixelart or 8bitpainter. There are also apps and websites which enable you to convert photos to pixel graphs (as well as this being something you can do with professional image editing software), however this can get quite technical.

As it's made in one piece that is folded over, some of the C2C writing will be upside down - which might seem tricky, but carefully following the chart to make this design will help you to get a full understanding of how corner to corner crochet works!
