    I have read so many patterns for this afghan and could not figure it out. This tutorial was AMAZING! Thank you so much! I am now happily at work on a baby afghan. Thanks again! You really made this easy to follow!

    I just began crocheting,again, after 35 years! This was the perfect pattern to get me back on my “bike”!! I made a rectangular one for my son, who is currently in the Airforce, in Europe. The directions were so easy for me to understand. I used the video to learn this. Thank you, Mikey!

    Hi Mikey i need your help i have orders for 4 c2c blankets, is there a way to figure out how many skein i will need for a certain size? They would like 42 inches x 52 inches. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

      I would look for patterns others have done with the Corner to Corner and see what they are prescribing. I would use that as an example for what you think you might need. There is a Corner to Corner Afghan on Red Heart that is similar in size. Look for it and see what they suggest. 😀

      Make 1 square. Take it out, measure the length it took to make.
      36in = 1 yard.
      So Number of blocks x inches your square was. Then divide by 36. (Check yarn yards) divide by how many yards are in your skein.
      I sometimes buy 1 extra to be safe.
      For example – My c2c is 50 squares by 50 squares. So, 2500 total squares. 2500x17in(yarn length for 1.square) =42500 inches needed. 4500 inches divided by 36 (#of inch in a yard) =1180.5 yards. Then take the amount of yards in 1 yarn that you’re using and divide yard length needed by how many yards in your skein. For example my yarn has 170yards. I need 1180.5 yards. So I will need to buy 7 skeins total.
      I know that sounds complicated so I’ll lay out the formula and you can enter your own numbers.
      Inches Length of yarn to make 1 square x Amount of squares total = Inches needed for entire blanket.

      Total of Inches needed divided by 36= Yards needed to complete blanket.

      Amount of Yards needed divided by Yards in your yarn skein= Amount of skeins needed to make your blanket.

    I did a practice C2C for my dog and it came out more diamond shaped than square. How do I keep this from happening? Do I need to change to a different size hook or is my tension off? I’m wanting to do a throw but I don’t want it misshapen. Please help!

    I can’t figure out the border in this pattern, help!

    Learning this stitch was easy and fun! I can’t wait to see how it turns out with the colors I chose. Thanks Mikey!!!

    Thanks Mikey! This was perfect and I’m loving what I’ve got so far!

  • April 23, 2015 at 10:08 pm

    Mikey, why do you yarn over a different way at the beginning of your double crochets? I was just wondering.

  • April 12, 2015 at 8:45 pm

    My C2C is flaring out… thoughts on why? tension too loose maybe?

    I’m attempting this C2C for the first time and have never had any experience carrying over yarn and striping. Am I correct in assuming that the best method of color change using Red Heart’s C2C pattern is cutting and weaving in ends instead of carrying the colors, considering some colors may change after more than two rows?

    Thank you! I am using this pattern to make 2 corner to corner afghans for my baby niece and nephew. So excited .

    I have been doing this pattern for over 55 yrs, my gram taught it to me. I would like to know how you came about finding it? Judi Kovar on Facebook.

    I have just started mine today. The instructions are very clear and I also loved the tip to change colour. Thank you very, very much! <3

    How can I make the c2c smaller? I need help, please…..thank you

    • November 20, 2014 at 2:29 pm

      Just start your decrease row where you want the size to end. If making a rectangular blanket, when the “triangle” gets to be as wide as you want along one straight edge, then start the decrease on that end while continuing the increase on the other. When you get to the length you want on the other straight edge, start the decrease on that end, too. If you are making a square, you would start the decrease on both ends of the same row.

        I am also wondering how to make a rectangle with this pattern. Would it even look right?

      • July 2, 2015 at 9:14 am

        Sorry, I just now read what Denise wrote! Thank you. Would love to see a photo of a rectangular c2c to see if I like it.

        I have been wondering this too thanks

    Hi Mikey, I’m making the C2C afghan and I wanted to make it a rectangle, I wanted it to go over the back of the couch and cover me up as I’m sitting and crocheting this winter, my question is how many rows should I do with the increases before I start the decrease? I’m kinda confused about the decrease but I’ll figu it out. Just need your help here I’m 5 feet 6 inches tall so I need to make this big enough to cover my legs and part of my chest, I get very cold all the time….. Please help me. I’ll give you my e-mail address so you could write me back. Thank you very much….. Virginia

    Do you have a written pattern for the C2C?
