Crochet: Corner to Corner Granny

corner to corner crochet

This is just a quick post to show you a project I’m working on – the Corner to Corner Granny. I’ve made a few what I call normal Corner to Corner (or c2c) baby blankets before. I like them because you don’t have to make a long foundation chain or join lots of squares together. Corner to Corner grows really quickly, by increasing every row until you have got to the right size, then decreasing every row to the end. It’s easy to make them square but you can make them rectangular by only decreasing one side for a few rows.

For some reason I thought a c2c granny stripe would be harder but it’s even easier.

I got some multicoloured yarn from Poundstretcher for this project. It was chunkier than I expected, so I’m using a 6mm hook. After I uploaded a photo to my Instagram, and tagged Poundstretcher, I saw they liked my photo, which was awesome! Then a few days later they featured my crochet on their account – yay! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Anyway, I’ve run out of yarn now so the project has been halted until I can get some more. I really should learn to buy enough in one go instead of just samples of everything!

Thanks for reading – have a great weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thereโ€™s just something so alluring about an unfinished project. Such talent, I applaud anyone who can have the precision and patience required for these hobbies. Seriously cannot wait to see the end result.
