Corner-To-Corner Crochet Tutorial - Very detailed Step-by-Step photo and video guide by Nicki's Homemade Crafts

I have been asked many times to make a very detailed Corner-to-Corner stitch pattern tutorial. Well, as I have in the past made already crochet patterns including this tutorial and will of course make more in the future, I will write out a very detailed step by step tutorial on how to do the Corner-to-Corner which includes many photos and a video at the end.

All you need in order to follow along with this tutorial is yarn and a hook. So go grab that and start with the tutorial.

Before we get started though, I would like to explain to you the basic foundation chain for the Corner-to-Corner.

This tutorial is written in US terms.

In order to create a Corner-to-Corner, let’s say blanket, in either half double (hdc), double (dc) or treble crochet (tr), please follow this formula below.

The foundation chain has 3 chains to which you add:

  • 2 chains for hdc (to make 5 chains)
  • 3 chains for dc (to make 6 chains)
  • 4 chains for tr (to make 7 chains)

To explain, the squares aka pixels are created like in diagonal rows as you can see in the picture below. The pink bottom left graph shows the order of which square is created first and which one next.

You could do the same for single crochets (sc), but it will most likely not look like a square in the end.

In the below tutorial I used dc’s to explain and demonstrate the Corner-to-Corner stitch pattern.

1. Make a chain of 6

2. Crochet 1 dc in each of the 4th, 5th, and 6th chain from the hook

3. Now, create another chain of 6 (you always do that when increasing at the beginning of each diagonal row)

4. Crochet 1 dc in each of the 4th, 5th, and 6th chain from the hook (picture on the left) and then flip the first square over (picture on the right)

5. Next, you will slip stitch to the space where you see the 3 chains (of the chain of 6 that you did not crochet into)

6. As we are not done with the 2nd diagonal row yet, you will crochet a chain of 3 (you will always do that on the squares where you do not increase or decrease)

7. Next, crochet 3 dc’s in the same space where you slip stitched into

8. Now you finished row 2 and will work on row 3 which means you will need to increase again by chaining 6

9. Crochet 1 dc in each of the 4th, 5th, and 6th chain from the hook (picture on the left) and then flip your work over (picture on the right)

10. Now slip stitch to the neighboring square (into the chain 3 space) which you see on the left picture, chain 3, and crochet 3 dc’s and slip stitch again to the neighboring square (right picture)

11. Chain 3, crochet 3 dc’s to finish the 3rd row

12. For this example, we will now decrease, but you could also now continue to increase and make the Corner-to-Corner bigger. In order to decrease, ch 1, and slip stitch into each dc and chain 3 space you just created

13. As we now work on row 4, chain 3 and crochet 3 dc’s in the same space

14. Chain of 3 and crochet 3 dc’s in the same space and slip stitch to the neighboring square

Now you finished your first small Corner-to-corner square. Just to recap, anytime you start a row, you chain 6 (remember it is a different number for hdc’s and tr’s). When you continue in a diagonal row, you create a chain of 3 at the beginning of each square/pixel and when you decrease, you create a chain of 1 and slip stitch into the stitches and space you just had created.
