Diamond Lace Afghan – Free Crochet Pattern and Tutorial

 

I have a sister in law that is expecting her first child! Maybe you remember her from one of my past projects she modeled for me. Hats, shawls and scarves. She’s helped me a lot!

 

I wanted to make something special baby blanket for her. When I first saw this stitch I knew it would be perfect! I loved how there were diamonds in the spaces as well as the solid diamonds. A shifting into something else, just like she is…. a Mother.

 

I do plan on having a piece of fleece sewn onto the back of this afghan before I give it as a gift to make it much warmer and leaving no holes for the babies fingers to get stuck in.

 

I really hope you like this afghan as much as I do and want to make one for someone you love too!

About the Author:

Hi I'm Candy from Meladora's Creations and I design crochet patterns and film them on YouTube. I want to start by saying, I am by no means a professional teacher. I figure things out as I go along and I love playing with yarn! This is how I have discovered new crochet stitches. I am a mother of two and I live in Israel presently, but I was born and raised in Oklahoma. I met a man on an online game and became friends and through time we fell in love and I came out here to Israel to be together. From lack of knowing how to speak Hebrew, I had to find a way to help take care of our two kids, so after sharing my crochet projects online and being asked to do a tutorial on one of them, I finally broke down and tried it.
