We’ve been using this technique in our Sweet Lilac Crochet Along and I wanted to add a photo tutorial here on the blog.

This is a really fun way to make corner to corner squares. Ours are all two colors because our blanket is inspired by classic half square triangle quilt blocks.

The instructions for the blocks we are making in the crochet along specify if you need to start with a ch 6 or ch 3. If you are making your own quilt square or using this technique on a different project, its probably going to take a little bit of trial and error to figure our which one you need to start with based on which direction your tile needs to go. Remember, all the tiles across every block alternate between horizontal and vertical. 

This post is pretty photo-heavy but I wanted it to be really clear for you all!

Let’s jump right in. We’ll start with our 2 different increase starts and move on to the decrease start.

Chain 6 Start (increase start)

This start is the same way you start a corner to corner block except your yarn is attached to the previous block.

Join your yarn and ch 6 to start. If you’re making a ch-6 start on an interior of a block, you may need to turn after you chain 6.
