Diagonal Crochet Afghan Patterns
This section is all about free diagonal crochet afghan patterns. One of the most popular ways to do C2C crochet is with diagonals. These blankets all involve a corner start diagonal crochet, which results in a beautiful striped look. Any of these could easily be given to babies, too!
For this method, you can use pretty variegated yarn to form a natural stripe or use up your scraps for each row to make your own color combination. It's so creative and up to you as to what you want from the end product. These patterns can either provide exact instructions or give you the inspiration to come up with your own thing.
If you haven't quite mastered the art of changing colors in crochet, then don't worry; variegated yarn makes it possible to create multicolored crochet patterns without learning how to change colors when crocheting.

Corner to Corner Graphghans
You got a sneak peek of "graphghans" in the baby section. If you are unfamiliar, a graphghan is an afghan made using a graph. When you use a C2C crochet graph, you are creating a picture in small squares. Because corner to corner is made up of squares, making a graph with graph paper or freehanding any square-based design means that you can create nearly anything.
Think of it as the crochet version of pixels or like old 8-bit video games (Mario, for example). These crochet charts are so imaginative and make working up one of these designs easy. Plus, you can create one large image or make smaller squares and combine them into a blanket (similar to what you would do with a granny square blanket).
Of course, several of the free C2C patterns below are incredibly complex. We'd suggest starting off with one of the simple small squares or one-image graphghans, then moving on to the multi-image or complex graphghans that are shown.
