Corner to Corner Afghan

This pattern of the Carpenter Wheel C2C Afghan can be found at the Crochet for Children website. Click on the link next to “full post” and you will then be redirected to the pattern on Facebook. If you are a quilter you will see the quilt block right away. When I looked at this I saw it from both sides, one side as one who crochets and the other side as a quilter. I am a big fan of Corner to Corner (C2C) afghans. This method of crochet is easy to learn and very easy to teach, this is the second pattern I taught my niece to crochet and now she has made one in her favorite colors of black and white and she is already planning her next one. This pattern works up very quickly so you get immediate gratification as you see your work progress and you get a real sense of accomplishment which only builds the closer you get to completion. As a crafter we take so much time planning, designing, picking out colors and then buying the materials needed for our projects and yes there is the excitement that goes with doing all the foundation work, however some of our projects can take quite a bit of time and patience. So it is very nice when you come across a stitch such as this Corner to Corner which allows you to complete a project quickly. For those last minute gifts where you have just about a week to make something I would definitely choose this stitch.

This is the Corner to Corner Afghan I made for my nephew who was born this past April. His mom chose the Mickey Mouse colors for his nursery so I used Key Lime which I could only find at Hobby Lobby, Royal Blue and White were easily found on Amazon. The Corner to Corner afghans are addictive and no one can make just one.
