"Corner to corner (C2C) crochet is so much fun. The best thing about corner to corner crochet is that you can easily play with color to make gorgeous finished projects. You don't have to be a professional to create your own designs in C2C. My best tip? Plan your C2C projects with graph paper. If you think of each cluster of stitches like a square on a sheet of graph paper, you can create beautiful designs easily, no pattern required!" -Heidi Gustad from handsoccupied.com

"I love that this stitch LOOKS hard, but isn't. People are intimidated by the stitch, but once you break it down, it's very easy! Seriously, double crochets and chains worked around the post of a stitch, that's it. My favorite part of this stitch is the texture that it adds and can be used on a variety of projects from blankets to edgings. And when it's worked with a variegated yarn it just takes the show!" -Kristi Simpson, www.kristisimpson.net
