Or if you prefer without pictures:

The easiest method I’ve found for learning the C2C.

Chain 6

DC in 4th chain from hook and in next 2 chains.

Chain 6

DC in 4th chain from hook and in next 2 chains.

Now flip the first block upside down so that the tail is pointing down and the chain 3 is pointing up. 

Insert your hook in the ch3 at the top on the left.

Slip st

Ch3, 3 DC

CH 6

3 DC (as before) starting in 4th chain from hook

Now FLIP the work on the left upside down again

Insert hook into the chain 3 sp where the tip of my hook is pointing

Slip stitch, ch 2, 3 DC

Repeat that in the next chain 3

From here on it is chain 6, 3 dc starting in 4th ch from hook, flip, sl st to next ch3 sp.

Insert hook into the chain 3 sp where the tip of my hook is pointing, sl st, chain 3, 3 DC.

Continue this way until you reach the desired width of your project. If you are making a square you will decrease on both ends. If you are making a rectangle you will decrease on ONE END ONLY at this point. 

DECREASING:

Chain 3 and turn.

Slip stitch into the chain 3 space.

Chain 3, 3 DC. You will see the corner form at this point. 

Continue across as normal, chain 6, turn and make another row.

If you are making a square you will begin decreasing on this side now. (If you want to make a rectangle continue in the pattern of ch 6, 3 DC down the chain, turn and continue across to the end. To begin decreasing here, chain 3

Turn and slip stitch into the chain 3 space. Again you will see the corner form.

Chain 3, 3 DC in chain 3 space, then continue across to end of row.

Slip stitch into chain 3 space

Turn your work

Chain 3, 3 DC in chain 3 space and continue to end of row. Slip stitch into chain 3 space, turn and repeat across. Continue in this manner until you have completed your project.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this with me! I love the pictures and the written instructions. I am a visual learner, and I am learning to work by written instructions. I do prefer pictures of course! And thank you to Barb!

  2. You are very welcome Betsy! It took me awhile to learn this. Then I saw a video of this particular “method”. I couldn’t find the video again when Kiersten and I were talking about it so I re-developed it in picture format. So glad it has helped you 🙂
