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 2: Join light grey with sl st in any sc from previous round. Reverse single crochet (or crab stitch) in each sc around. Tie off, weave in ends.
