Of all the crochet stitches as a beginner the corner to corner (c2c) can look the most daunting but it’s really not as hard as it looks. Why not follow this pattern and video tutorial at the base of this post and have a go at the c2c stitch. It’s great for blankets, shawls, scarfs and even cowls. Once you’ve practised this stitch, why not have a go at the C2C blanket shown in the video tutorial at the base of this post.
Here’s @littlegemscrafts trying out the stitch after putting it off for fear she wouldn’t be able to do it! How great does this look?

Greetings from Vancouver Island,
Tonight, at last, I’m learning C2C using your video tutorial for left hand and I am so grateful.
I’ve tried on my own and with other videos but tonight I’ve followed you with success.
I’m hoping to make a baby blanket using this stitch once the yarn I’ve ordered arrives.
