Aussi en / Also in frFrançais

You’ve seen box stitch crochet online, even if you don’t think so, When you have, it’s been called ‘c2c’ or corner-to-corner. A lot of crocheters use it to create beautiful pictures in their work, often when crocheting blankets.

Corinne Freeman is taking this stitch to a whole new level with her book:

“Box Stitch Crochet: Use the Corner-to-Corner Stitch in New Ways to Make 20 Hats, Wraps, Scarves & Accessories.”

About the book:

Learn the basics of box stitch with step-by-step instructions, and then learn to work it in a rectangle, with a beveled edge, and as a motif. Learning to change colors within the stitch and join pieces will enable you to crochet pieces you wouldn’t have thought were possible with box stitch. By creatively manipulating this classic stitch, Corinne Freeman has designed a wide range of easy, fun, and fashionable crochet designs. The stitch is quick to learn, and once you know it, you will be ready to complete the Butterfly Shawl, Crossing Neck Scarf, Under-the-Sea Motif Shawl, and any other design you choose.

Project variety:

I am really interested in making a good number of the projects included in this book, starting with these ones:
