Corner-to-Corner crochet, or C2C for short, is a fun and relaxing technique to work everything from very simple to very intricate designs and graphghans. In my series on Crochet Fundamentals I would like to help you master C2C.
The basic idea….
The basic idea of C2C is that you start in one corner and work along the diagonal to the other corner; hence the name corner-to-corner. Making squares and rectangles is the easiest, but as such you could also make other shapes by increasing or decreasing the diagonal as needed.
Flow of the method
Below I give you a universal pattern for making a C2C project. The idea is that you start in the bottom-left corner at point O and then work the first pixel. You then turn and come back to work 2 pixels in the opposite direction, turn again and work 3 pixels in the opposite direction again, and so…

This is funny in so many ways. “Real” ingredients? I recognize that pancakes have been made from a box for some time now, but to say that the “new 50% fluffier pancakes” are better than those made at home is amusing.
