Check out this Crochet Corner-to-Corner Throw Pattern from Red Heart Yarn! This makes a great free crochet afghan pattern for the intermediate crocheter.

One of the biggest advantage of C2C patterns is that you start in a corner, increase until you like the size of the blanket, and then begin decreasing. This is a recipe for mindless crochet you can do while listening to an audiobook or your favorite TV show.

The C2C method also means your project size is totally customizeable. You can make a coaster, dishcloth, baby blanket, throw, or a king sized blanket! It's a fantyastic method for using up scrap yarn, too.

I'd also suggest it's easier to maintain gauge with C2C patterns. Inconsistencies are less obvious.

Enjoy learning this method and creating beautiful new projects! It's addictive!

Corner to corner throw is one of my favorite blankets to make. I enjoy the versatility of sizing this blanket to fit from baby to adult. I discovered the corner to corner many years ago and found it is a bit hard to start, but once I got the past the first few stitches I was able to find the rhythm of the pattern, it flowed thereafter. I have since made blankets in many sizes and colors. Not always following the color pattern as stated.

I give this Crochet Corner to Corner Throw a 5-star rating for its color combination, for the kind of yarn used, and for the novelty of the corner to corner design. One thing I like is that it used a multicolored yarn to alternate with the white and the solid blue. Also a 5-star rating for the clear and organized pattern which makes you want to start this project right away.

I absolutely love this pattern. A girlfriend showed me this pattern and I have done several baby blankets and I have done a full size blanket for my daughter. You just keep repeating the pattern until you have it the size you want, then you stop increasing, and continue to follow the pattern. I would recommend this pattern for any beginner, it is that easy.

This is one of my favorite blanket patterns because it makes such a stunning finished product. It seems a little complicated for some beginners, but if you just go step-by-step or get someone to show you how to start, it is really super easy and really quick. I've made several recently with Bernat Blanket Yarn (bulky, use L hook, about 3 - 4 skeins per blanket), and am very happy with the results. It makes a stunning baby blanket/gift. I prefer to make in a solid color or main color with a few contrasting stripes/trim. It is absolutely gorgeous in white or cream. You control how big you make it. Just repeat pattern until it is the width you want. Then start your decrease rows. If you use regular worsted weight yarn and I hook, you will have a great, textured fabric.

I have a client that wants a 3 colored C2C made. How many Rolls of each color would I need. He's wanting a Queen sized Afghan

This is a keeper BUT.... to follow the pattern makes this afghan HUGE. I have a queen bed and it could easily cover a king sized bed. It also takes twice the yarn. Next time I make this, I won't follow the repeat pattern as many times and leave off a few rows. Otherwise, a very easy pattern to follow.

I have made many of these over the past 30 or 40 years When you get one side the size you want, just don't go up the next row and slip stitch over the block you just made. Turn and continue . This makes a beautiful baby afghan.

Absolutely in love with this pattern, but would like to see a picture of it laid out. Can anyone help me with this?

I've finished the blanket and I'm ready to start the edging. However, I'm finding the instructions alittle confusing. It starts off ok but then it says, " in center dc of next block, 3 dc in next ch-3 space or over dc;..." What do they mean by "over dc"? That phrase is confusing to me. Can anyone clarify these instructions please?

I'm making this for my niece. It's a beautiful afghan and will be nice and warm, too!! I love the colors and this stitch is a nice change from the other afghans I've made.

I learned this stitch in the 70's and have made dozens of blankets. different sizes and different weight yarns. all turn out great and warm.

I remember a friend using this pattern alot but she modified it into a rectangle instead of a square. Do you know what to do after the afghan reaches the width you want how to continue?

I would love to know the same thing! I think I'm going to try just not increasing OR decreasing for a few rows then picking back up with the pattern and see what happens. You posted in 2013, maybe you found your answer somewhere and would like to share it???

I made this afghan for my sister for christmas 2 years ago. It cam out so pretty and was very easy to make. Loved this pattern. I will make it again for my self.
