Corner to Corner Crochet

This week I discovered Corner to Corner or c2c crochet. It is a very simple but extremely effective technique, worked diagonally across instead of side to side. There is no need for a long foundation chain – you start with a chain of just 6 stitches.

My first attempt was just a small sampler made from cotton and will be my new dishcloth.

The pattern and texture this method creates is so much more interesting than some of my other projects.

I am going to use some variegated yarn and make something a bit bigger next time, so watch this space…
