I’m so excited to finally share the first part of the pattern with you and show you exactly how to start this corner to corner crochet scarf.

Part 2 is HERE.

Corner to corner (C2C) crochet

Corner to corner crochet is a technique where your crochet project starts in one corner and ends in another corner. If you think about a corner to corner crochet, you probably imagine a square shape piece made with the popular stitches that looks like blocks worked in a diagonal style. And you are right!

But, on the example of my Zarina Diagonal Scarf, I want to show you that you can make not only a square shape but also a rectangle.

If you are a corner to corner lover or want to challenge yourself, check out my Diagonal Stone Blanket which has the same construction.

How to crochet a corner to corner rectangle?

Zarina Diagonal Scarf may be that perfect crochet pattern you’ve been looking for so long. It’s an incredibly versatile crochet accessory that you can stylish in a million ways. You can loop it around your neck, tie it with a knot ot let it hang down from your back.

The construction of this scarf is pretty intuitive. The first section starts at one corner, creating a pyramid shape by increasing both edges of the scarf. Then, you will be increasing at one end of the row but decreasing the other creating a parallelogram. When your desired lenght is reached, the final section decreases stitches on both ends to make the second triangle. When finish and turned horizontal, the Zarina Diagonal Scarf will create diagonal effect.

The yarn cake

I love when the yarn makes pieces look more beautiful and complicated than they are in reality.

I chose to use Scheepjes Woolly Whirl (again!) and one yarn cake (1000m of yarn) is enough to make this corner to corner crochet scarf and I still have a bot of yarn left over. It’s not a huge wrap – it’s an airy and romantic piece with an incredibly modern twist that will leave you breathless.

This project is highly adaptable for other yarn weights if you prefer to use another yarn weight then fingering. Please bear in mind that using different yarn weights will affect the final size of your piece and also your yardage requirements.

Although, this corner to corner crochet scarf is the perfect match for a gradient cake, in a plain colour, this diagonal pattern still pops through for a wow effect.

Can’t wait to see the yarns and colors you’ll choose!
