When I saw this stitch, absolutely LOVE it! Another great stitch. It is so simple and fast.
It can be used for shawls, scarf, baby blankets.
Actually I have done both, Diagonal and Straight.
Here are the links (below) of 2 different types of Crochet which definitely help you before start your project. And I strongly advice to you that you should watch the video tutorials to get idea of increasing/decreasing boxes,
And you can use 1 colour or different colour in every line.. depends on your feelings :)
You are starting with 1 box, then 2 boxes, then 3 boxes, ... suddenly you will see it will easily build up. Every beginning of the line you are adding 1 box.
Do the corner to corner until the side has reached the across distance you need.
If you stop both sides from growing at the same time will cause your blanket to be square.
If you would like to have a rectangular blanket, continue to grow in one direction only, then start decreasing when you get to the length.
