I love crocheting diagonal blankets where you increase from one corner to the center and then decrease towards the end. That way, after you reach the halfway point, each row is shorter than the last!

This diagonal blanket is full of vibrant colors that will brighten up any baby’s day (or, even any room in your house)!

This pattern was updated on August 19, 2015 to be easier to read, especially for beginners, and to include a video tutorial at the bottom of the pattern. Let me know if you have any questions!
