Box Stitch Afghans – Pattern Lookup

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission. Here’s how it works.

Krystina has sent us a request to ask for some options for Box Stitch Afghans. She would prefer to use medium weight yarn.

There are a number of different options when it comes to the crocheted box stitch – it can be worked horizontally in straight rows or even diagonally, from corner to corner – which is why it is often referred to as the corner-to-corner stitch, corner to corner shell stitch, or simply the C2C Stitch.

I have included tutorials for the box stitch and corner to corner stitch first and at the end of this post, I have included a number of free blanket patterns you can crochet using these stitches.

There are also a number of other stitch patterns which are referred to as Box Stitches such as:
