This free corner to corner crochet pattern will allow you to put in to practice your colour changing skills.

Changing colour when using the corner to corner technique is a little different to standard crochet.

If you’re brand new to corner to corner, check out my beginners guide to corner to corner which will take you through the standard technique which also includes how to create a rectangle in C2C.

For an introduction to changing colour in C2C, why not stitch up a C2C Granny Square, where you will practice changing colour at the ends of the rows of your traditional corner to corner.

This pattern uses the Mini C2C technique which uses the half double crochet stitch in place of the traditional double crochet stitch which I first shared the mini c2c stitch in my Prismatic C2C Clutch pattern and this stitch also helps to minimise the visibility of the colour changes
