I can’t believe I’ve never done a corner to corner crochet stitch tutorial! This is my go-to stitch for baby blankets.
We are using this stitch in the Sweet Lilac Crochet Along. You can find out more info about that here.
If you’ve never done this stitch before you might also see it abbreviated c2c or call the diagonal block stitch. Corner to Corner speaks more to the direction you crochet than the name of the stitch because you can do any number of stitches in this diagonal fashion (like this one from our 2019 CAL). The diagonal block stitch is by far the most popular one and the one we are learning today.
