Knitter's Quilt: Dancing Diamonds Knitting Pattern

Inspired by patchwork quilting, this cozy diamond-motif blanket makes your scrap yarn shine.

The knitting directions are easy to memorize, almost any yarn weight can be included, and the yarn requirements for each square are so scant that this project will fit in even a sandwich-size bag. There is simply no better on-the-go knitting. If you knit a square every time you find yourself with a few spare minutes, you’ll have a blanket in no time.

This pattern includes layouts in six sizes ranging from crib to king size for you to color in, plus tutorials for assembling your squares with single crochet, weaving in your ends efficiently, Cate’s Clasp Weft Join, and detailed making up instructions to ensure you end up with a blanket you can be proud of for years to come.
