Corner-to-corner crochet is a terrific technique. It allows you to begin in the corner of a crochet project, typically a crochet blanket or afghan square, and work towards the other corner in a way that produces a finished project that looks like a textured, layered version of the classic granny square. It's a unique technique but it builds upon basic crochet skills so it's very easy to learn. By following a pixel graph instead of a written pattern, you can incorporate virtually any character or image you want into a crochet blanket. This great book includes how-to instructions and step-by-step photos for 5 throws. All designs are made using #4 worsted-weight yarn.
