Book Description

18 stunning corner-to-corner crochet blanket and Afghan patterns, in a range of fresh and contemporary colours!

Surprisingly easy to learn and quick to work up, corner-to-corner crochet is perfect for making geometric patterns and colourful designs, and creating blankets, Afghans and throws with ease. In this new book from crochet designer and best-selling author Leonie Morgan you’ll discover a delightful collection of geometric corner-to-corner blankets.

With a mixture of all-in-one and join-as-you-go block patterns, and a range of blanket sizes, there is plenty for C2C lovers and row-by-row enthusiasts to enjoy. Each beautiful design has a clear, written pattern, an easy-to-follow chart, and large, detailed photographs of the finished throw. The designs range from simple to more advanced skill levels and feature a mix of bold, geometric designs and colourful stripes.

A comprehensive techniques section includes step-by-step photographs of how to work the diagonal block stitches needed to create corner-to-corner blankets. Also included are useful techniques and tips for yarn management, using bobbins, joining as you go, and simple edgings for corner-to-corner projects.

With 18 original designs to choose from, as well as 2 smaller projects, there is a wealth of inspiration to send you running for your crochet hook!
