This is my first corner to corner afghan and I love the texture of if. I just changed colors haphazardly because I just felt like it. That way, I didn't have to count rows...I tend to be a lazy crafter.

I think the color changes are awesome!  It's so random, but your stitches are so uniform.  Love it! Grin

I love this afghan.   Your stitches are beautiful.  What stitch pattern did you use?  I love the texture it creates.

The stitch is called "Corner to corner". It's very easy once you get the hang of it. I just searched online until I found an explanation I could understand. Like I said, at first it looks odd but then once you get it, it goes rapidly.

I love the colors you used and the stripes make it look really uniform actually. I haven't heard of corner to corner stitch. I'll be looking it up!
