Hello my beautiful crocheters, today I will show you another baby blanket: Diamond Crochet Baby Blanket, a beautiful pattern with a wonderful texture: not to lacy not to textured. Very easy to crochet, the pattern only uses the double crochet stitch so is perfect if you are a beginner.
Little ones will love being wrapped in this lightweight, soft and stylish baby blanket.
This Diamond crochet baby blanket it builds up super fast for those of you who don’t have the patience for larger or complicated projects. You can customize easily to make it bigger or smaller, you only have to make the beginning chain a multiple of 10 chains plus 3 chains. To make it longer simply crochet for more rows.
This sweet little baby afghan is the perfect gift for baby showers, your new bundle of joy or for birthdays of little ones. Or why not for your fur baby.
As you can see my boy loves it and he enjoys to sleep on it. He couldn’t wait to finish it so he can try it on. He was a little bit annoyed by me trying to take some beautiful pictures with him while he was asleep.
The light wasn’t to good so I was trying to set it up and he was bothered by me so I don’t have to many pictures with him to show you this time. He just got up, left the room and continued his beauty sleep on my husband desk chair. He totally ignored me, he is so funny sometimes!
I love the color (a beautiful baby blue, unfortunately the light wasn’t to good and I didn’t succeed to capture the true shade of the color) and I think is perfect for both sex: girl or boy, but you can choose any color you love for your blanket.
This is a high quality cotton yarn. The mercerisation process gives cotton a fantastic sheen and makes it even more durable. This yarn is a beautiful and shiny material which works great with this pattern.Here you find this yarn: http://bit.ly/2Qnhze1
