When I asked on Instagram at the start of the year which crochet skill you most wanted to learn, the most popular response was corner to corner (also known as C2C). I'm not surprised by your enthusiasm because my mind has been spinning with possibilities since I learned the c2c technique a couple of years ago. (You can see all my free corner to corner crochet patterns here! Scroll to the bottom of this post to see my list of the corner to corner crochet resources that have been helpful to me from around the internet.)

To me, C2C is a little like paint by number, only with yarn. You can illustrate almost anything with a simple hook and string and that is something I find pretty incredible! Thanks to your requests, last spring I put together a full "How to Corner to Corner Crochet" photo tutorial post, which is definitely worth checking out and referring back to as you practice.
Want to practice the basics of corner-to-corner crochet like increasing, decreasing, and changing colors at the end of a row? This C2C blanket is the perfect beginner project to hone your skills.
I know many of us prefer learning by video though, so I'm working on a C2C series that will teach you all the basics including how to increase in corner to corner crochet, how to decrease, how to read a C2C graph or chart and, perhaps most importantly, how to keep your yarn under control as you work! (You can check out this photo tutorial on How to Switch Colors in C2C Crochet or this post on How to Keep Your Yarn Organized With Household Items to read some tips about how I manage my yarn as well.)
