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.

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.
