If I were you, I’d create a small swatch, maybe something that’s just about 4 rows of c2c. Then I’d measure that to see how wide and tall each of your boxes is. That can give you an idea of how many boxes you’ll need to fill 40×40″. You’ll increase by one tile per diagonal row until your desired dimension are reached then you’ll begin decreasing. Graph patterns typically begin in the bottom right corner, regardless of if you’re right or left handed. In the middle of each row, you’ll chain 2 instead of 3 to create a new tile.
So at the end of each round, I had to turn and go back in the other direction. As soon as you’ve reached the widest/tallest point in your graph, use the C2C decrease stitch until one single tile remains. In C2C crochet, you’re always increasing or decreasing at the beginning of a row. Learn how to use a gauge swatch to determine the size of any C2C blanket pattern in the How To Design Your Own C2C Graph Patterns tutorial. Alternatively, simply single crocheting around your project can serve as a C2C border as well. Here though we’re specifically talking about stitches that are worked in the typical C2C method.

At the end of the row, you will turn your work and go back in the direction you just came from.

This is important to get us started for the remaining of the blanket. Let me show you my diagrams I made to help you visualize what you are going to do.
As I mentioned, the technique of crocheting tiles in diagonal rows can also be worked using the half double crochet C2C stitch. This is helpful when it’s necessary to add more intricacy to a C2C design. Because each tile takes up less space, a design can include more detail in the same amount of space.

Working the final double crochet into the top of the chain from the previous row helps to keep the edge more even. After completing the first box, you may also need to lightly tug on it to keep it even as well. Last May, I was getting ready to visit with my family in New Jersey, and planning on a project to take with me.
