Crochet Baby Blanket with a Diamond Pattern

New Baby Announcement

I am now allowed to say that we will be having a new addition to the family early next year.  A little boy is due to Mummy-to-be C & Daddy-to-be G.  In fact the new Munchkin is due on my birthday, wouldn’t that be a brilliant present, but as we all know babies tend to come when they are ready & rarely on their due date, unless your Mummy H & Jake, born at lunch time on his due date!  Finally we will have someone to continue on the family name.

Family clan Blog Diamond Design Baby Blanket Crochet

Anyhow I’ve had my crochet hooks out, I wanted to start on a baby blanket, before we knew whether we was having a boy or a girl, so I found a pattern for a baby blanket with diamond design on it that I love.  I’m making it in fairly thin 2 ply but super soft yarn. I got a few cones off Ebay & this pastel lemon one fitted the bill.

I’m using a 4 mm crochet needle / hook, it measures 102 cm x 34 cm, as of the 24th of August.  I’m not sure how big thebaby  blanket with be when I’ve finished crocheting. I want it to be a large size, that can be used on the floor for tummy time, as a shawl, & of course as a cot /baby basket blanket.  I’ll just keep crocheting until I feel it’s the right size – or I run out of wool!

I’m going to put a border around the edge, but haven’t decided whether this will be self-coloured or maybe add white into it.  I’ll have to look through my yarns to see if I have any of the same yarn weight.

It’s an easy repeating pattern that I can do whilst watching TV in an evening.

What’s on your needles/hooks at the moment?
