What Stitches are Used in the Corner to Corner Pattern?

The term ‘C2C crochet’ can be misleading, this term refers to the method of working any stitch from corner to corner with an increasing part and a decreasing part.

Although, the term is commonly used to describe the boxed C2C stitch which is built of “tiles”.

The tiles can be made using double crochet stitch, or half double crochet stitch. In this C2C crochet stitch tutorial, we will learn how to crochet the C2C stitch with double crochet.

How to Crochet the C2C Stitch

The logic behind the “classic” C2C crochet stitch is that the stitch is built out of “tiles”, and in every row you add one tile at the beginning of the row and one tile at the end of the row while increasing.

Once you reached the desired length of your work, you start decreasing by omitting 2 tiles, one at the beginning of the row and one at the end of the row.
