Learn C2C in the round with Emma Leith!

Published on September 9, 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 color to crochet Emma's fabulous Colorful Carnaby blanket!

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