I’m so happy to see the excitement around this new project I’m working on! I’m creating a Corner-to-Corner (C2C) blanket but this time I am using the Granny Stitch! The granny stitch is a crowd favorite and I’m so excited to show you that you can use this stitch while working diagonally in the corner to corner format. I’ve created a video for you with a small swatch of this project. This was the easiest way to teach both the increases and decreases. The finished blanket that I am working on will be in a separate blog post that is coming soon! There is a very special story behind this project and the colors I chose to use but I want to save that for later 🙂

Thank you so much. I have been struggling trying to learn to do a C2C blanket but I think I can attempt this one and it is just so cute! Will you be having a video for lefties?
What a great pattern! Thanks for sharing! I also love making shawls using this method (but obviously not decreasing back into a square). It’s so simple and you can easily use other stitches to create awesome effects. Thanks again!
Shirley Ayres says
Thank you for this pattern , I have made granny square blankets and used the puff stitch before too . But didn’t know the corner to corner pattern . Your video is easy to flollow and all the pictures are helpful .
I love crochet . Thanks
Thanks so much for the video and pattern on this corner to corner blanket. Much easier than the c2c pattern I’ve tried before! Your video is great, because you explain the steps, but do the stitches quickly. For those that are beginners and don’t know the stitches yet, they can always slow the video down or refer to the plethora of how-to videos that are out there. Thanks again, keep up the good work!

I love this pattern and am getting ready to start the decrease. However, I want to make it rectangular and will only be decreasing one side. Does that then mean that only on the one side I will put just the one double crochet? I’m thinking that’s how it how it should be but now I’m second guessing myself. Thank you!

Thank you for sharing your knitting experience, it helped me a lot.
I have just finished 2 pair of your Baby UGG boots, and I was wondering what I might attempt next. I didn’t have far to look to find the pattern for this beautiful blanket. I am almost 60 years old (in a month!) and when I was a little girl, probably 4 or 5 years old, my Grandmother crocheted a granny square dolly sized blanket for me and one for my cousin. I don’t have any grandchildren yet, but my cousin has 2 beautiful grandaughters and I think that I will make one of these for both of them. Thank you so much for sharing all your beautiful patterns. You are my
“go to” site for all things crochet!!
