C2C means “Corner To Corner”.
This crochet technique is called this way because you will work from a corner to a corner, instead of working in normal horizontal rows or in a round.
The C2C technique can be done with many different crochet stitches, but usually is referred to a particular stitch which uses squares to build the work.
These square are usually created with a combination of Double Crochet (DC – US Terminology) and Chains.
The C2C – Corner To Corner I’m going to show you today is called “Mini C2C” and it will be done with a combination oh Half Double Crochet (HDC – US Terminology) and Chains.
The differences between the two (C2C and Mini C2C) is simply that the second one will result smaller and with less holes between the stitches.
You can watch two video-tutorials about this technique:
Here below you also have the FREE pattern of the small rectangle you see in the second video.
This pattern is totally free, but it’s intellectual property of Elendipity:
you can use it and, of course, you can sell the final products you create, but you cannot sell the pattern.
