This year, I have been focusing on learning new crochet skills. Even as a designer, who has over 30 years of crochet experience, I have so many things to learn. This past month, I had a guest speaker come and talk to my facebook group (SP3 Crochet & Conversations) about Corner to Corner crochet, also know as C2C.
Malena from, Straight Hooked, taught the course and went over everything from reading graphs, how to build the crochet blocks, how the stitches increase/decrease, color changes and any other info we wanted to know. She did an amazing job and there is a replay available if your interested in watching, click HERE.
As part of the lesson, Straight Hooked, designed a FREE laptop cover pattern for everyone. It was a fun project for us to practice our skills on. Here is my practice swatch, I still need to make the back and seam them together. Find your copy of the laptop cover pattern for FREE by clicking HERE.
Implementing your new C2C Skills
Learning a new skill can be really fun. I love to dive in and try new projects with the techniques I’ve learned. The most common C2C projects are with cute images crocheted from graphs. However, I wanted to focus on mastering the actual stitches first including increasing and decreasing.
I searched for some fun projects that will allow you to practice your skills without worrying about the color changes in the chart. Most of these are quick, will allow you to play with the technique and create something fun and useful. One of the projects is larger, but it will allow you to use up your scrap yarn (yippee)!
I would love to see any what you end up crocheting to practice your corner to corner (C2C) skills. Join my facebook group (info is below) to share your creations and inspire others with your finished crochet pieces.
