51 Free Crochet Corner-to-Corner Patterns

Most patterns are crocheted side to side, with horizontal rows. But some patterns are made on the diagonal! Two ways to make projects like this in crochet are corner-to-corner (C2C) blocks and regular rows crocheted on the bias.

A small block usually consists of 4 half-double or double crochet stitches in C2C blocks. (The pattern will tell you the details.) Turn the fabric and additional blocks are built on top of it. The finished fabric has lots of little squares and is ideal for making projects with words or pictures.

Crochet projects can also be crocheted on the bias, like knitting projects. In this project, regular single crochet, half double crochet, or double crochet stitches are used in back-and-forth rows, but there are consistent increases and decreases at the ends of rows that create a square, rectangle, or triangle shape.

Whichever method you use, crocheting from one corner to the opposite adds interest to your projects and teaches you a new skill!
