Learn C2C in the round with Emma Leith!

Published on 9 September 2019 2 min read

Learning how to work C2C (corner to corner) in the round has never been easier! Follow along with Emma Leith's easy tutorial video to learn how to start off, how to work C2C in the round and how to change colour to crochet Emma's fabulous Colourful Carnaby blanket!

The C2C method (corner to corner) works by creating tiles that link to each other, like pixels. It is fantastic for colourwork and making pictures - and there are some amazing patterns that use corner-to-corner working diagonally. Emma's Colourful Carnaby blanket uses C2C in the round, creating giant tiles that are then stitched together! We love her fabulous colour choices - you can follow Emma's bold colour palette, or her alternative, softer palette - or you can choose your own from the Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky range of 52 shades!
