My Book: Corner-To-Corner Crochet

Corner-To-Corner Crochet: 15 Contemporary Projects” has been quite the labor of love (and crochet stitches!) and I’m so excited to share this secret project with you!Β

Together with A LOT of crochet help from my sweet and industrious mom, patience from my husband and weekends away from my kids, I’ve written “Corner-To-Corner Crochet: 15 Contemporary Projects.” It includes–you guessed it–15 modern patterns to use and wear, plus complete tutorials on every skill you need to get started.Β

I Love Corner-To-Corner Crochet

It’s no secret that I’ve fallen in love with corner-to-corner crochet over the last few years. Ever since designing my family’s Christmas afghan (get the free pattern here!), C2C crochet has completely inspired the kid in me who loved to draw. I adore how this simple technique of using the diagonal box stitch allows us to crochet color work patterns that would otherwise be super complicated to tackle.

When SewandSo publishing approached me last year with the idea of creating a book focused on teaching corner-to-corner crochet, I really could think of no other crochet skill I’d rather help people learn. While I’ve shared a lot of free C2C crochet patterns and tutorials on the blog, I loved the idea of creating a comprehensive guide to this magical technique, complete with a ton of projects you’d feel proud to wear and display in your home.

Take a Peek Inside the Book

I’m always curious to know a little more about a book before I purchase it, so I put together this quick flip through video below so you can get a feel for what it’ll be like to hold your copy in your own two hands!

What Does the Book Include?

Even if you’ve never tried corner-to-corner crochet before, I wanted this book to be a resource you could pick up and put to use. You’ll find several step-by-step photo tutorials laid out in the same straightforward manner you’ve come to expect on the blog. (Plus, you can always watch video tutorials here!)Β

And whether you’re totally new or have miles of C2C on your crochet resume, I think you’ll find patterns in the book that’ll inspire your inner hooker. For beginners, there are projects like the Crested Butte Cowl or the Sediment Poncho that require no color changes and make quick, satisfying projects out of basic rectangles.

For those looking to add to your handmade home, you’ll find six modern afghan patterns that’ll complete your Instagram-worthy living room, bedroom or nursery. And if you want to snuggle in your C2C skills everywhere you go, you can make the Endless Sky Poncho, which uses a graphic repeating pattern to create a beautiful, southwest-inspired sweater.

And if you want to start designing your own corner to corner crochet patterns (I highly recommend it!), I cover that too, describing the simple resources and formulas you can use to get started.

Each pattern contains a C2C graph as well as line-by-line written instructions. I hope the combo of both make these patterns approachable for all learning styles!

    I started crocheting as a child, 38 years ago now! But I have never tried C2C crochet.
    Your fabulous new book looks like the perfect place to start! I’m thrilled to get my hands on this beautiful book.
    Congratulations!!
    One question… will the book include diagrams or an explanation of how to design our own images?
    Much love,
    Christie

      Hey Christie,

      I learned as a child too. πŸ™‚ I think you’ll really enjoy how many new possibilities open up with C2C. There is indeed a section on designing your own graphs and what tools and calculations to start with. I’m always happy to help with that too so send me an email if questions come up after you get the book! Thank you for your kind words.

      Hey Gloria,

      Sometimes it’s not visible if you use an ad-blocker. Could that be the case?

      If not, it should be appearing in the section that says β€œTake a Peek Inside the Book.” You can see it on my Instagram feed too though!

      Haha, sounds like we both have a lot of cardigans. I’m glad to hear that!

      I’ve had a crochet slump the last few months too. I think it just happens sometimes. I hope the book gives you some pretty pictures to look at while you wait for your “crojo” to return.

      Thanks so much for your support!

      Oh awesome! I really hope the book offers veterans like you a few new ideas or inspiration. There’s a section in the book about designing your own patterns. Let me know if you ever have any other questions. Designing the graphs is such a fun part of the process!

    Hi Jess, I pre-ordered your book last week. I have been crocheting since I was in my teens (I’m now 37) and I’ve never tried C2C. However, I love everything you do so I decided to try C2C, it seems as if the possibilities are endless. Thank you for sharing your talent with all of us and I can’t wait until my book is in my hands. Soooo Excited.

      Oh yay! How fun that you’re going to try something new. I’m about your age and have been crocheting about as long. I just tried c2c a few years ago and fell in love. I hope you enjoy the book!
