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 Two. 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.
- 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.
- These photos illustrate crocheting "maintaining" rows in C2C. This will turn your project into a rectangle. 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.
- I use HDC C2C in this tutorial. Sometimes C2C is done in DC. Always make sure to reference your pattern!
To make rows that maintain a stitch count (as opposed to increasing or decreasing the number of squares in your row): Start with a ch 5 like you were while you were increasing. Continue the C2C pattern across.
When you come to your last Ch 2 space from the previous row, slip stitch into the space but DO NOT make a square. Instead turn your work.
Slip stitch in the last 3 HDC stitches you made, then ch 2. Now you can turn your work one more time and continue working your C2C squares across the row. You will continue increase on one side of the piece and decreasing on the other side of the piece until the pattern indicated you should decrease on both sides.
Easy peasy! This will let you make rectangular projects instead of a square :) Like the lovely Fallen Arrows Blanket here. Now you can get to work on Part Two of the CAL!
