Corner to Corner Crochet
Typically, when we think of C2C (corner to corner) crochet blankets, we think of the blankets made of little squares in a corner to corner fashion. Although that is a corner to corner blanket, you can use other stitches in a corner to corner fashion!
I love crocheting blankets in a corner to corner fashion because I feel like it works up quicker (although I don’t think it technically does) and you get to see a lot of the progress quicker than doing it row by row in a horizontal fashion.
Blocking to Retain Shape
Blocking isn’t something I normally do, but for this blanket it did need some shaping at the end.
You can block the blanket in order to give it its perfect square shape and for the filet stitches to show well. It doesn’t take much to block this blanket especially for a baby size.
I recommend steam blocking so the blanket will permanently set in the square shape. Lay down some towels, spread out the blanket and lay it in a square shape. Use stainless steel/rust proof pins to pin down the edges to keep the square shape.
Using a clothing steamer or steamer function on an iron, thoroughly steam the project. If using an iron, be careful not to get too close to the project of the yarn fibers can melt. Allow the project to dry before removing pins.
