            adding a border of double crochet)

  •  First and last rows or squares (i.e. stitch to stitch)

  •  Granny squares – join as you go.

Crochet to Corner PM Workshop Friday 20th March 2020 1.15-4.15pm

Black Sheep Wools, Warrington

Corner to Corner (C2C) crochet is a popular technique to make a square or

rectangle, starting in one corner, increasing along each row and then decreasing

to the opposite corner. Each row is made by creating a number of tiles

(made from 3ch and 3tr) and a rectangle can also be created by maintaining

the same number of tiles across the centre section. Colourwork can create

stripes, blocks or pictures. Perfect for blankets and accessories.

You will learn the basics of Corner 2 Corner stitch, increasing, working

straight, decreasing and changing colour.

Yarn is provided as part of the workshop.
