C2C Photo Tutorial: Part Three

Are you a visual learner, but perhaps don't like trying to keep up with video tutorials?  You've found the right place!  This page is my C2C Photo Tutorial: Part Three.  The instructions on this page will help you with the Fallen Arrows Blanket CAL or any other C2C project you may be interested in making.  So scroll down and watch as I take you step by step through the C2C stitch.


  1. I am left handed and the photos are taken from that perspective.  You can look at the photos in the mirror to "flip" them if that helps you.
  2. These photos illustrate crocheting decreasing rows in C2C.  This will allow you to finish the rectangular shape of your project; working all the way to the last point.  For starting a C2C project and learning how to change colors please view Part One.  As my CAL progresses I will have additional photo tutorials available.
  3. I use HDC C2C in this tutorial.  Sometimes C2C is done in DC.  Always make sure to reference your pattern!

To make rows that decrease in "square" count, you will decrease on both sides of your piece.

Instead of beginning your row with a ch 5, you will sl st across the 3 HDC stitches from the previous square, ch 2 and continue on to your next row.

This works exactly the same way as when you were decreasing for Part Two.  The only difference is that now you will be increasing on both sides instead of just one.

Continue working back and forth in a serpentine pattern.  Your rows will continue to decrease by one "square" each time.  When you reach your last row, make one last square, and then attach it with a sl st to the ch 2 space as pictured.

Easy peasy!  This will let you finish the body of your blanket-just the edging to go! Now you can get to work on Part Three of the CAL!  The fourth and final tutorial will cover how to add an edge to your project.
