Diagonal Pattern Baby Blanket

Lion Brand® Homespun®


10 sc and 11 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in single crochet. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

Diagonal Pattern Baby Blanket Reviewed by Devora Krischer on 2014-02-18 *****
This is my favorite baby blanket pattern, and I have done a few, because I have lots of grandkids. :) I like it because it's very drapey, easy to swaddle the little ones. Also, the pattern is easy to remember; you can make it any size you want. I have a new grand baby who will be in the NICU for a while, and I'm going to make a small one for the hospital and a larger one for the crib. The pattern is also adaptable to many different yarns. Love it!!
