I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

C2C crochet is a lovely technique to make geometric designs, even pictures, using “pixels”. It’s an easy technique to make attractive, functional and highly decorative items. It’s particularly useful for large, flat surfaces such as blankets, afghans, pillow cases and bedspreads. Here are some patterns to get you going.
