The diamond stitch is a great technique, because it allows the crocheter to make a blanket that has the appearance of being light and airy, but that is still substantial enough to wrap a baby in. With the addition of the colors, this is truly a baby blanket for those with discerning hippy tastes. Moreover, the project is easy and works up quickly, so that it can even be attempted by those of lesser skill. A link to a free pattern is at the end of the post.
