Corner to Corner Crochet Stitch


The Corner to corner crochet stitch is becoming quite popular these days. But it's been around for a long time. It's also known as c2c crochet and Victorian times it was called the diagonal crazy box stitch.

Materials:
Worsted weight yarn in your color or colors of choice.
Crochet hook in the appropriate size (check the yarn label)

Abbreviations:
Arnd-around
Ch(s)-chain(s)
Dc-double crochet
Dec(ing)-decrease (decreasing)
Inc(ing)-increase (increasing)
Rep-repeat
Nxt-next
Sc-single crochet
Sp-space
Ss or sl st-slip stitch
St(s)-stitch(s)

Pattern:

Beginning and Increasing Rows:
Chain 6
Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook and next 2 chs. (one box made, starting corner)
Row 2: Turn your work, ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and next 2 chs. Ss in ch-3 sp of box in previous row. (two blocks made)
Row 3: Turn your work, ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and next 2 chs. (slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in next ch-3 space of previous row) twice. (three blocks made)
Row 4: Turn your work, ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and next 2 chs. (slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in next ch-3 space of previous row) three times. (four blocks made)

Continue in in this manner, increasing 1 block on each row until you reach your desired width. The ends of the diagonal are corners two and three. Now start decreasing until you get to your last corner.

Decrease Rows:
slip st across first 3 dc, *(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all into the next ch-3 space of previous row; repeat from * to the last ch-3 space. slip st into the last space; turn, do not make a block in last space.

Repeat the decreasing pattern for each row until there is one block left. Fasten off and weave in ends.

You can crochet around the edges if you wish, but it's not necessary.

How to use your new stitch:
Start small (like a washcloth) or start big (like an afghan). The cool thing about the diagonal crazy box stitch is that you start in one corner and end up in the opposite corner. You can make it square (think pillows) or make it rectangular (think scarves) and use different color yarns on each row for a striped effect. The possibilities are endless.
