Diamond crochet baby blanket

Hello my beautiful crocheters, today I will show you another baby blanket. A beautiful diamond pattern with a wonderful texture, very easy to crochet even if you are a beginner.  Little ones will love being wrapped in this lightweight, soft and stylish blanket.

This 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. 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.

The dimension of the blanket is 91 cm length X 91 cm width (36 inches X 36 inches). I used cotton from my stash, (I bought a large quantity of cotton a few years ago and I’ve lost the label of it and unfortunately I don’t know the brand)  and a 2,75 mm hook.

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.
