The Corner-to-Corner stitch is usually used in blankets but the possibilities are endless!

The Corner-to-Corner (C2C) stitch is a great stitch to learn since it is so versatile. While it is most commonly used in blankets. But, it’s a great stitch to use for scarves, clothing, and hats.

Depending on how you use it, you can use the stitch in rectangular projects or in square projects. There are just so many possibilities!
