Today’s selection of crochet blanket pattern ideas has two main motifs. Are you wondering what they are?
Well then, we have focused on deep, mostly warm shades. They make us think of oriental spices as well as the diamond shape. What an original combination, right?
Diamond blanket crochet patterns are extremely original, so don’t hesitate to try them. These projects feature diamond stitch, which comes in many shapes and sizes. You can make it with double crochet or single crochet, or use techniques like tapestry or filet crochet.
Many written patterns have accompanying video tutorials, which help you learn even more quickly. Thanks to colorful designs, you can encounter the name ‘harlequin blanket’. These baby blankets mimic the pattern on Harlequin’s suit.
