Diamond Lace Blanket Knitting Pattern

My mum loves knitting baby blankets and I decided to share with you some of the stitches she is using. I will try to also write the patterns for a full blanket and will share on a later date.

Today I will share the Diamond Lace pattern which my mom used to knit this lovely baby blanket. 
If you cannot knit the blanket yourself and don’t have anyone close to you to knit it for you, click here to be redirected to my Etsy shop to order one. 🙂 
Please share your wishes which blanket pattern would like to see here next.

The Diamond Lace

The pictured blanket is knitted from pure cotton yarn but I am sure it will be lovely and soft knitted with soft Alpaca wool or Merino.

Needles 4mm [US 6]
