Corner to Corner for Squares & Rectangles

Do you love corner to corner and want to change it up a bit to add texture and different sets of stitches? I have a solution for you. Try the double crochet corner to corner.

Corner to corner doesn’t mean it has to be square. It can be a rectangle, in this pattern, I will show you how to do both and customize it to match whatever you need.

Daisy Blanket Corner to Corner
Daisy Blanket Corner to Corner

This pattern is inspired by an existing pattern from Yarnspirations called the Daisy Blanket. The pattern also includes that really cute flower on the top to crochet with it.

For me, I get lazy and don’t always want to change colours. So what I decided to do was to use the Bernat L’il Tots Yarn that has colour variegation and I added ridges to the blanket to give it the obvious appears as a corner to corner.

Below, I will give you the pattern written for just double crochet and then give you the pattern as my ridges really provide texture. I leave it to you to decide what you prefer.

If you want the flower, visit the original flower, just visit the original pattern called Daisy Blanket on Yarnspirations.

Pattern Tips

  • You can use any yarn you wish as long as the hook compliments the yarn. Refer to the ball band if you need help with that recommendation.
  • Sizing is up to you. I will have yarn ball recommendations for different sizes.

Afghan Sizes

  • Baby Blanket 36″ x 36″ square
  • Throw Size 60″ x 60″ square
  • Twin 39″ x 75″
  • Double 54″ x 75″
  • Queen 60″ x 80″
  • King 76″ x 80″

Yarn Ball Counts per Size

Here are the yarns I am comparing to get yarn ball counts. If using different yarns or mixing colours, you will have to figure that out on your own. Yarn class is Medium #4. The hook is 5.5 mm Size I. Each ball has different yardage; therefore, will be different ball counts per size.

Pattern without Ridges – Regular DC

The pattern starts in one corner and progressively gets wider until you are ready to start decreasing.

Hook, 5.5 mm Size I

  1. Ch 5.
  2. (RS). 2 dc in 4th ch from hook (counts as 3 dc). 2 dc in next ch. 5 dc. Turn.
  3. Ch 3. 2 dc in first st (2 inc made). 1 dc in each of next 3 sts. 3 dc in last st (2 inc made). 9 dc. Turn.
  4. Ch 3. 2 dc in first st (2 inc made). 1 dc in each dc to last dc. 3 dc in last st (2 inc made). Turn. 13 dc.
  5. Continue as Step 3 until you get to the width you want before starting to decrease.

Decreasing as a Square Size

  1. Ch 3. (Yoh and draw up a loop in next dc. Yoh and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice. Yoh and draw through all loops on hook – dc2tog made. 1 dc in each st to last 3 sts. (Yoh and draw up a loop in next dc. Yoh and draw through 2 loops on hook) 3 times. Yoh and draw through all loops on hook – dc3tog made. Turn.
  2. Continue as Step 1 until you are at the final point of the corner.
  3. Final Corner, Ch 3. Dc3tog. Fasten off.

Decreasing as A Rectangle Size

When decreasing as a rectangle, one side stops growing and the other side continues to grow to create the rectangular shape. Once the growing side gets to the length you need, you then finish it off like a typical square version where both sides are decreasing.

  1. Ch 3. 2 dc in first st (2 inc made). 1 dc in each dc to last 3 stitches. (Yoh and draw up a loop in next dc. Yoh and draw through 2 loops on hook) 3 times. Yoh and draw through all loops on hook – dc3tog made. Turn.
  2. Ch 3. (Yoh and draw up a loop in next dc. Yoh and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice. Yoh and draw through all loops on hook – dc2tog made. 1 dc in each to the last stitch. The last stitch gets 3 dc. Turn.
  3. Repeat Step 1 and 2 until the growing side gets to the length you want.
  4. Once you have the length. Begin Decreasing as a Square Size to finish off.

Mikey’s Pattern with Ridges

Mikey’s pattern has obvious ridges through the use of Back Loops when crocheting along. You can follow the same instructions as above for both Square and Rectangle but substitute the stitches to be using the Back Loop Double Crochet.

If you need further help on what the back loops are. Here’s a quick lesson.

  1. When doing this pattern with HDC, would the stitch counts be the same (ie.. 3 hdc at the beginning and end of the rows)?

  2. I have tried to do this several times and every time it gets warped edges into it about 8-12 rows in. I have counted and counted and recounted my stitches and I know I am following the pattern. I even took a picture and I think the pattern is calling for too many increases, my sides want stay straight.

    • I find using stitch markers at the beginning and end of each row moving them up as you work. Especially if I have been making non-straight-edged projects for a while, and go back to attempting something that is supposed to be straight.

  3. Mikey, I really think you need to review this pattern. On the rectangle, when you start the middle section , at one end of the row you increase by 2 but at the other end you only increase by 1. This would cause the blanket to increase by 1 stitch each row when the number of stitches should remain the same. This would cause the width of the blanket to increase and would make the whole blanket out of shape ?

  4. Just wondering why there’s a 3dc tog & then it changes to 2dc tog after turning on rectangle. Would this method be the same in waffle stitch Afghan? Thank u

  5. love c2c i have lots of yarn leftover with worsted weight and light weight , and baby weight so I am wondering if i can mix the different weights into a c2c , just to use up the yarn?

  6. the starting is folding up like I am getting it too tight so I switched to a bigger hook and that isn’t working either.
    any help on how to make it not curl?

  7. I have made this blanket turned out uneven at the end of the blanket – the blanket looks warped, the end is wider than the beginning. Feel as though I followed the tutorial correctly. Do you have any insight as to why this happened?
