My Diamonds crochet blanket pattern is available in Butterfly Diamonds, Dragonfly Diamonds and Flower Diamonds.
Simple stitches are used making this a beginner friendly pattern. This works up quickly.
Dk yarn is used, although a larger blanket could be achieved with the use of an Aran weight yarn. I used Sirdar Snuggly (available here) which is a lovely soft nylon-acrylic yarn, very suitable for babies.
4mm hook for borders and surface slip stitch
