Diamond Corner Baby Blanket
This pattern is appropriate for beginners with some knowledge of crochet techniques and pattern reading. *
Wrap your precious little bundle in this cozy take on the granny square. The traditional granny square center is followed by a section of solid double crochet with strategic spaces to create an open diamond pattern at the corners. The blanket is finished off with a dainty shell edging. The size of the blanket can be easily adjusted by adding or subtracting rounds from the granny square center to accommodate any age.
Lion Brand’s “Mandala – Baby” is the perfect ombré cake yarn for this blanket because of its gently shifting, whimsical colors. This acrylic yarn is easy care; just throw it in the washer and dryer without fear. The generous yardage means it only takes 2 cakes for this sizable baby blanket. Plan this for your next baby shower gift!
