The Gilal Diamond Throw is a beginner friendly Tunisian crochet throw that takes your living space from nice to wow! It can be crocheted quickly thanks to using two strands of worsted/aran weight yarn at once and 9 mm Tunisian crochet hook. It features simple and stylish ribbing and large and small diamonds patterns. These are made using stranded colourwork that is a great skill to develop, which can be used for many future projects from home decor to garments.
This Chic Colorful Granny Square Throw has a modern look and it was so much fun to make. Full directions for the pattern, plus a video tutorial on how to complete the invisible join for a granny square. This throw would be nice for a baby too. I love the modern look so much, that it is on display as part of my home decor. This is an easy way to let the crochet pattern highlight the granny squares rather than the method used for joining. It takes a bit of time, but the end result looks very nice.Video tutorials on the invisible join, how to crochet a granny square, and how to change colors in a granny square.
"I love using bobbles to create shapes and patterns, they look great using one color yarn or using multiple colors. They are also reversible and you can push them on either side of the pattern. How do you crochet the diamond bobble pattern? The diamond bobble stitch is a crochet pattern constructed with double crochet and bobble stitches evenly spaced out to form a seamless grid pattern of diagonal stripes. I did a tutorial on how to crochet the bobble stitch before, but today I will show you how to create a treble bobble and how to use it to create the diamond bobble pattern."
To begin with, this project is made using the Ribbed Diamond Blanket pattern. This pattern is especially interesting, because it mainly uses texture to delineate the constituent diamonds from one another. Combined with the velvet yarn, this is a blanket fit for a king.
