Diamonds are forever

In our little corner of the world, summer has definitely arrived – with beautiful flowers and harvests of berries from the garden. But true to English weather, we have been enjoying glorious sunshine one moment and then the next, it is throwing it down with thunder and lightening. All this has made taking good pictures of the crochet rather difficult, so apologies if they are a little dull/fuzzy today. But the weather has fortunately been no impediment to crocheting this blanket.

This week, we are working over the last couple of rounds to close the diamonds by working two front post double trebles together.

Pattern notes

The pattern is written using UK terminology, for a conversion chart to US terminology click this link

The blanket is worked in the round. You do not need to turn your work after each row and you continue working in the same direction as before. 

[Stitches written in brackets like this are all worked into the same stitch.]

For the first stitch on each row: Chain 1 to move up to the next round if the round starts with double crochet. Chain 2 if the round starts with a half treble crochet, and chain 3 if the round starts with a treble crochet. These chains count as the first stitch in the row
