Note: I received an Advance Reading Copy of this book through NetGalley for an honest review.

One of the trends in crochet-land these past few years is corner-to-corner crochet, a technique of using sets of three (half) double crochet stitches to create a squares and working in a diagonal of squares to create a big canvas that offers so many possibilities. When I see them I can’t help imagine the possibilities of taking any pixilated pattern and converting it to a blanket.

The book Corner to Corner Crochet by Jess Coppom explains the technique well, with illustrations step-by-step. After a detailed explanation of the technique in double crochet and half double crochet stitches, including increasing, decreasing and color changes, there are fifteen patterns. Of course there are lots of blankets, but also some pillows, a cowl, a beanie, a rug, a scarf and a poncho.

This is a nice book to get some more information about corner to corner crochet, and have some starting patterns to try it out. The patterns are well described both in words and with a pattern image and all information you could want is given.
