How to read a C2C crochet pattern
Working a pattern from a graph can seem daunting and time consuming but it’s one of my favourites.
Similar to intarsia crochet, most c2c patterns will include a combination of a graph and written instructions. Each square in a graph represents 1 c2c block. 1 block = ch-3 and 3 dc sts
Each project begins in the lower right hand corner of the graph. From there, you will increase by 1 block per row moving diagonally. You will continue in this way until the longest row(s) of the pattern is complete.
At this point, you’ll begin decreasing by 1 block per row until you’ve reached the final block in the lower left hand side of the graph.

The ‘x’ marks the row you are currently working on. I suggest printing out c2c crochet pattern graphs and marking off rows as you progress.
