Blankets designed in crochet are most likely to fail if sewing is used. C2C doesn’t have to be sewn together. Watch how. Great scrap-buster concept.
A YouTube Membership Person asked me to figure out how to join corner to corner without sewing. I sat with the concept and tried four attempts to get it to work, and by gawd, I figured it out. You may be thinking, why not just take an idea from an existing tutorial host?
When you blindly copy another YouTube Host, you limit your creativity. I may not have figured it out the way I did it to understand it fully. I have a Log Cabin C2C Rectangle Blanket coming in the future, but I want to finish the accurate sample before teasing it.
There have been requests on YouTube for the written instructions for this joining concept, but I feel I will write a novel for this when really, just a demonstration of the join is all that is needed. You are either joining to 1 side or a maximum of 2 sides at the same time. It’s not hard, and understanding this concept is easy, but I think this is where a demonstration will overpower the need for sheets of paper to explain it.
The tutorial has all four squares demonstrated in the sample. Square 1 has no joining. Squares 2 and 3 have to join to 1 side only. Square 4 has the join to two sides at the same time. Use the video chapters in the video info to fast forward.
I’ve been experimenting with what more can be done with corner-to-corner concepts. Part of my hang-up with C2C was the edging and decreasing of being out of alignment and not causing the final product to be square or rectangular. I have a New Method of C2C for 2023.
It’s all about anchoring. Click the picture below for more and a tutorial on the new method.
