Discontinued. This digital pattern is no longer available online.

Pattern written using 525g of acrylic aran weight yarn with a 6mm hook to make a blanket measuring 34x40 inches.

Using filet crochet technique with a puff stitch border. The idea for this design started off when I was making cushion covers and working out how to join hexagons together to make a square shaped panel. When I played around with the templates it dawned on me that by spacing the hexagons apart it would create a diamond pattern in between the hexies. Use as many or as few colours as you like. I went for a solid mustard colour with cream for the border. My wonderful pattern testers used a variety colours to create a pretty striped effect. The pattern is written to make a blanket measuring 34x40 inches using aran/worsted weight yarn with a 6mm hook. You could use any yarn and hook size you like. I’ve included simple instructions on how to adapt the sizing. Have fun and get creative with it, the pattern would also make a lovely cushion cover by making 2 small panels and join using the same border.
