Corner to Corner Mini Bean Stitch – A Different Corner to Corner Crochet Stitch

I love the Mini Bean stitch, it’s fun to make and creates a beautiful texture. 

The mini Bean stitch is kind of a small puff stitch. When working the crochet Mini Bean stitch in a corner to corner method, it creates a look of a crochet woven stitch.

Being a repetitive stitch, the corner to corner Mini Bean stitch is so relaxing and meditative, and can be used for so many different projects.
I used this beautiful C2C stitch in my Seashore Bliss Placemat.

How to Crochet the C2C Mini Bean Stitch?

Working in the corner to corner method is easy, and beginner friendly. This method is different from the classic C2C stitch.

To increase, you start from one corner, adding 3 chains at the beginning of every row and work a Mini Bean stitch in top of each of the Mini Bean stitches, while working ch1 between them. When reaching the end of the row, you are crocheting a Mini Bean stitch in the ch- sp from the previous row, in order to increase.
So we are increasing by adding 1 Mini Bean stitch at the end of each row.

And the same logic is used for the c2c decreasing method, we are decreasing 1 Mini Bean stitch at the end of every row. Working back and forth like that creates a reversible fabric!

C2C Mini Bean Stitch Crochet Blanket

The C2C Mini Bean stitch is perfect for making a soft blanket.

For making a blanket I would suggest using at least a DK (#3) weight yarn, or thicker such as Worsted (#4) weight yarn.

To make a blanket using the corner to corner crochet Mini Bean stitch, work this pattern and keep increasing until you reach your desired width, then start decreasing.

This stitch pattern creates a smooth edging and in my opinion, doesn’t need a border, but you can work any border you’d like if you prefer.

You can make it a square like the tutorial below or a rectangle (available in the PDF version).

You can find the ad-free PDF pattern with the full photo-tutorial at one of my shops below:
