Corner to Corner Crochet

Corner to corner crochet is such a lovely technique to make blankets. It has a lovely squishy texture and boy does it work up quickly too.

I have been doing quite a few corner to corner blankets for our local cattery recently and have really enjoyed using this simple crochet technique. I thought it would be good to share this mini-tutorial on the stitch now as I am designing on a corner-to-corner crochet pet blanket that I hope to share with you soon.

I have taken photos of each step to help you pick up the technique easily.

Firstly, a little about the name: it is called corner to corner because you start in the bottom right corner and then work up to the top left corner in diagonal rows.

Foundation row:

Chain 6.

Row 1:

(This is the first “square”. Each square is made of 3 trebles (known as double crochet in the USA) and 3 chains.)

1 treble into the 4th chain from hook. 1 treble into each of the next 2 chains.

You have now formed your first square and now you continue to

Row 2:

Chain 6 and turn your work.

1 treble into the 4th chain from hook. 1 treble into each of the next 2 chains.

You now make a slip stitch into the 3-chain-space on the side of the first square.

Chain 3 and then work 3 trebles into the chain-3-space of the first square. This completes row 2.

Row 3 and beyond:

Continue as for row 2 until you want to stop increasing the width of your blanket.

You will be adding 1 extra square to each row.

Closing/decreasing

When you no longer want to increase the size of the blanket on either side, you will stop adding an extra square to each row.

To do so, make a slip stitch into the chain-3-space on the side of the square that was the last in the previous row.

Chain 1 and turn your work.

Slip stitch into the top of the 3 trebles in the last square you made.

Chain 3 and work 3 trebles into the chain-3-space on the side of the last square you crocheted.

Continue as normal for the rest of the row.

I hope that you enjoyed this tutorial and that you are now exploring the wonderful world of corner to corner crochet.
