Take a break from the stress of everyday life with the Restful Corner to Corner Crochet Throw. Crochet can be such a relaxing hobby and this crochet blanket made from worsted weight yarn with a size I hook is definitely de-stressing.

What's even more wonderful about this throw is that you won't have to sew anything together at the end because you're just going from one corner and increasing and then decreasing back to the opposite corner. Work this corner to corner crochet throw in calming colors like blues and soft yellows.

Tried this craft? What did you think?

This is a beautiful crochet throw. I am aware of the corner to corner technique but I have never attempted any projects that used the stitch. The project design is marked as intermediate but the instructions are well written. I am also guessing the beautiful flow of colors is due to the choice of yarn selected.

I have never made a corner to corner blanket. The instructions look simple to follow though so I will give it a try. You can never have too many afghans and I think this may be a good stash buster as well. It is very interesting looking. Thank you.

I have made a few of these using all kinds of yarn. they make up really quick and are really easy. Once you get the hang of it thy it in chunky yarn. Just make sure you have an even number. for the ones I made I bought 16 to 20 for a big blanket

This is a beautiful corner to corner crochet throw. I love the colors the designer selected. They give you the sense of peace and tranquility. I have not used the corner to corner technique before and really inclined to make this my first project in which I use it.

This is so interesting to have the variegated yarn in and among the other yarns-- definitely gives a different, almost textured, look.

The one thing I have always wanted to do is an afghan but sometimes I really do not care for the pattern that goes in the straight lines across. I love the fact that this pattern runs diagonally and has such pretty colors. It will definitely brighten up any room and be interesting to look at as well!

Thank you so much, I finally understand the pattern, you explained it so well Sharon wilks

This blue/peach combo throw is so lovely. The contrast of colors is not very common making it exciting to make. It helps that the pattern is right in the front page. Thanks.
