Frequently Asked Questions

How do I contact you?

My name is Sherry and you can send me an email anytime! sherry@bluefrogcreek.com  I will email back as soon as I can.

What is Corner to Corner or C2C Crochet?

C2C crochet uses a block stitch in a diagonal corner to corner crochet technique. The stitch is a lot of fun and super easy once you get the hang of it! You can use just 1 color of yarn to make your project or up your crochet skills by stitching with multiple colors. Using a graphed picture you can create one of a kind projects!

Blue Frog Creek patterns provide you with not only the graph, but a detailed row by row block chart and word chart. The patterns titled C2C are not written for graphghans, tapestry, intarsia, mosaic, filet or the like. You can, however, use the included graph if you want to crochet that way. I am currently working on patterns that will include the horizontal row counts that are necessary for the following other kinds of crochet work.

Can I use your patterns for Graphghans Tapestry or Intarsia?

These 3 methods of crocheting are pretty much the same thing. They are all worked off of a graph chart and create designs of color in your work.

These are typically worked in horizontal rows, while a C2C is worked in diagonal rows. Many are worked in single crochet (US) or double crochet (UK) using 1 crochet stitch for each block on the graph chart. However, you can choose any stitch, or set of stitches (think popcorn!), as long as it is square. They are incredibly versatile.

Since these are worked off a graph chart, the same as a C2C project, you can use Blue Frog Creek graph charts for these kinds of projects. If you would rather a written or block pattern on a particular pattern, then please email me, and I will rush it through for you.

What is Filet Crochet? 

Filet crochet is also worked off of a graph chart but instead of a solid piece you will have open spaces due to the open mesh. I haven’t done filet yet, and I knew there were 2 standard stitches, the open mesh and closed mesh. But look at this pattern that Old-Time Crochet found from 1919! I can’t help but imagine one of the state designs, with 4 colors or less, done in filet with these stitches! Oh my, what a treasure that would be.

Can I use the graph chart for cross-stitch?

Yes! Of course. I haven’t included floss colors, however. If you need floss colors please just send me a message and I will switch the yarn to floss colors, as close as I can get!

Can I gift or sell projects I complete from this pattern? 

Yes you can. All I ask is that if you are selling, just be so kind as to give Blue Frog Creek credit for the design.

Can I share or sell the pattern in part or in whole? 

No. The pattern and its parts are subject to Copyright and are not to be sold, copied or shared, in whole or in part. Patterns are only available from Blue Frog Creek, LLC.

Are pictures of finished afghans? 

I wish I could crochet that fast! No, photos are a representation and not to be construed as a finished project.

Do you offer refunds? 

Due to the nature of a download you cannot “return” it, so I’m unable to offer refunds. If you have problems please contact me!

How long will it take to receive the pattern? 

Immediately after payment is complete you will be able to download the pattern.

Does Blue Frog Creek sell completed projects? 

No. I just make the patterns for you to create your own!

I don’t read crochet diagrams. Will I be able to follow along?

You should be just fine. The C2C charts are in 2 forms. The block chart, which shows a colored block with the number of blocks needed, and the word chart which shows the yarn color and how many blocks to complete in that color. These charts are not the same as the diagrams that you see for crochet.

I don’t know US crochet terminology. Can I use these C2C charts?

Absolutely! You choose which stitch you want to use with your blocks. So, US/UK written terminology doesn’t come into play here.

I don’t speak/read English very well. Will I still be able to use the C2C pattern?

I think so. The block chart is visual rather than written out with crochet terms like a standard crochet pattern. The only area that I see you having trouble with is the yarn guide. The yarn guide is information that will help you determine how much yarn you need and how large your project will be. It is not necessary to be able to follow the pattern.

Can I use a yarn/wool other than Red Heart? 

Yes, of course. Choose whatever yarn or wool you like to work with.

My gauge is different than 3/4″/1.9cm. How big will my afghan be? 

Here is a handy dandy chart: Standard and Imperial Gauge Charts for C2C

Any other questions, please feel free to ask!

Happy Stitching, Sherry
