Taught by Tian Connaughton
Corner-to-corner crochet is a technique you can use to incorporate bold, eye-catching imagery into your crocheted projects. Think of it as pixel art, where each pixel is a small square of crochet. Tian Connaughton, expert crochet designer and technical editor, guides you through the basics of corner-to-corner crochet while making a pillow with an iconic evergreen tree motif. You’ll learn how to read a corner-to-corner chart and how to turn single crochet stitches, double crochet stitches, chains, and slip stitches into squares that will make up the building blocks of your tree. Tian also shows you two different options for finishing your pillow: a permanent seam to enclose the pillow, or an extra button flap to make a removable cover. This pillow is perfect for holiday decor and gifts, but it’s also easy to switch up the colors for a year-round, rustic style.
