C2C Creamsicle Graph

It’s a little difficult to download the image on desktop, so I am providing both the graphic and a download PDF in case you have trouble downloading the image.

I used the mini-c2c technique for my blanket. If you are not familiar with mini c2c, please check out this article I wrote for Happily Hooked Magazine all about mini-c2c.

Learn more about C2C and get access to some wonderful calculators too!

What is C2C?

C2C means corner-to-corner.  You are working each square from the bottom right size diagonally to the top left side.  If you are not familiar with C2C, please refer to my post called C2C Basics to get familiar with this fun crochet technique.
