Will always find their kind."

Find the best color combination in your favorite yarn. All yardages are approximate - amounts will vary depending on tension, hook size, and yarn choice.

Stitches used

  • ch – chain
  • sl st – slip stitch
  • sc – single crochet
  • dc – double crochet

Instructions for basic corner to corner

FIRST BLOCK/ROW: with yellow, chain 6, DC in 4th chain from hook and next 2 chains.

SECOND ROW: Turn, chain 6, dc in 4th chain from hook and next 2 chains. sl st in next ch 3 space, ch 3, 3 dc in same space. Follow chart for color changes.

THIRD ROW: Work as second row across to the end.

DECREASE ROW: Turn, sl st in first 3 dc, sl st in next ch 3 space, ch 3, 3 dc in same space. Work across, end with sl st in last ch 3 space.

Corner to corner is a quick, fun stitch, but working with color changes can be challenging. I frequently end up with multiple yarn balls and a huge mess if I'm not careful.

Working with several balls of yarn at once saves a lot of cutting and ends to weave in.

BORDER

ROUND 1: Do not fasten off after final C2C block. Continue with blue from the corner. Ch 1, 3 sc in same (corner) stitch. Sc evenly across each side – 1 sc in the top of each dc (3 in a row) and 2 sc in the side of each dc or ch 3 space – with 3 sc in each corner. Join to first sc with sl st. Approx. 1158 sc. Fasten off.

ROUND 2: Join gold in any sc with an sl st. Ch 1, sc in same stitch, sc in next 2. Ch 3, turn work and sl st in first sc. Ch 1 and turn work again, 7 dc in the ch 3 space just made. Sc in each of next 3 stiches on previous round. *Ch 3, turn work and sl st around post of last dc made. Ch 1 and turn work again. 7 dc in the ch 3 space just made. Sc in each of the next 3 stitches on previous round. Repeat from * around. When you get back to the beginning, slip stitch to the front of the first shell made to complete pattern.

the border is a scallop that overlaps giving it a 'regal' look
