Crochet Boho Diamond Lines Baby Blanket

I’ve had this idea of combining puffs and stripes to make diamonds in my head for a while and I’m glad I was finally able to figure out how to make it work!

I went through a lot of practice swatches for this blanket trying to figure out how to evenly space the diamonds and to see which stitches would work best, so was really glad when it finally worked out!

Notes

In order to avoid weaving in a ton of ends for this blanket I carried yarn on some of the rows so that I could easily change colors and pick up the new color when I needed it. To carry yarn, simply lay the color not in use across the top of your work and crochet over it as you go. The specific rows where I carried yarn are noted in the pattern below, but if you’d rather cut the yarn each time you switch colors, that works fine, too. 

Pattern

Chain 96 with White. (To make your blanket larger, chain a multiple of 24.)

ROW 1: Starting in the 2nd chain from the hook, work a SC. *Work a DC in the next chain, then a SC in the next chain. Repeat from * to the end of the chain. The last stitch should be a SC. Chain 1 and turn. (95 st)

ROWS 2 – 3: *Work a SC into the SC of the row below, then work a DC into the next DC of the row below. Repeat from to the end of the row. You should always work a SC into the top of a SC and a DC into the top of a DC. The last stitch should be a SC. At the end of row 3, pull through with Strawberry before you finish the stitch. Chain 1 and turn. 

ROW 4: Carry the White along the row and crochet over it as you go. With Strawberry, work HDC slip stitch in each of the first 11 stitches, then work 1 puff stitch in the next stitch. *Work HDC slip stitch in each of the next 23 stitches, then work a puff stitch in the next stitch. Repeat from * to the end of the row, until you end with HDC slip stitch in the last 11 stitches. On the last stitch, YO, insert your hook and pull up a loop, then pull directly through one loop. Pull through with White to finish stitch. Chain 1 and turn. 

ROW 5: Carry the Strawberry along the row and crochet over it as you go. With White, *work a SC into the next SC and a DC into the next DC. Repeat from * to the end of the row. Chain 1 and turn. When you reach the end of the row, leave the Strawberry so that you can pick it back up when you return to that side of the blanket after the next two rows. 

ROWS 6 – 7: With White, *work a SC into the next SC and a DC into the next DC. Repeat from * to the end of the row. At the end of row 7, bring Strawberry up the side of the blanket and pull through to finish the last stitch. Chain 1 and turn. 

ROW 8: Carry the White along the row and crochet over it as you go. With Strawberry, work HDC slip stitch in each of the first 8 stitches, then 1 puff stitch in the next stitch, then HDC slip stitch in the next 5 stitches, then 1 puff stitch in the next stitch. *Work HDC slip stitch in each of the next 17 stitches, then 1 puff stitch in the next stitch, then HDC slip stitch in the next 5 stitches, then 1 puff stitch in the next stitch. Repeat from * to the end of the row, until you end with HDC slip stitch in the last 8 stitches. Pull through with White on last stitch. Chain 1 and turn. 

ROW 9: Repeat row 5. 

ROWS 10 – 11: Repeat rows 6 through 7. 

ROW 12: Carry the White along the row and crochet over it as you go. With Strawberry, work HDC slip stitch in each of the first 5 stitches, then 1 puff stitch in the next stitch, then HDC slip stitch in the next 5 stitches, then 1 puff stitch in the next stitch, then HDC slip stitch in the next 5 stitches, then 1 puff stitch in the next stitch. *Work HDC slip stitch in each of the next 11 stitches, then 1 puff stitch in the next stitch, then HDC slip stitch in the next 5 stitches, then 1 puff stitch in the next stitch, then HDC slip stitch in the next 5 stitches, then 1 puff stitch in the next stitch. Repeat from * to the end of the row, until you end with HDC slip stitch in the last 5 stitches. Pull through with White on last stitch. Chain 1 and turn. 

ROW 13: Repeat row 5. 

ROWS 14 – 15: Repeat rows 6 through 7.

ROW 16: Repeat row 8. 

ROW 17: Repeat row 5. 

ROWS 18 – 19: Repeat rows 6 through 7. 

ROW 20: Repeat row 4. At the end of the row, cut Strawberry. 

ROWS 21 – 23: With White, *work a SC into the next SC and a DC into the next DC. Repeat from * to the end of the row. At the end of row 23, pull through with Persimmon. Chain 1 and turn. 

ROW 24: Carry the White along the row and crochet over it as you go. With Persimmon, work HDC slip stitch in each of the first 23 stitches, then work 1 puff stitch in the next stitch. *Work HDC slip stitch in each of the next 23 stitches, then work a puff stitch in the next stitch. Repeat from * to the end of the row, until you end with HDC slip stitch in the last 23 stitches.

ROW 25: Carry the Persimmon along the row and crochet over it as you go. With White, *work a SC into the next SC and a DC into the next DC. Repeat from * to the end of the row. Chain 1 and turn. When you reach the end of the row, leave the Persimmon so that you can pick it back up when you return to that side of the blanket after the next two rows. 

ROWS 26 – 27: With White, *work a SC into the next SC and a DC into the next DC. Repeat from * to the end of the row. At the end of row 7, bring Persimmon up the side of the blanket and pull through to finish the last stitch. Chain 1 and turn. 

ROW 28: Carry the White along the row and crochet over it as you go. With Persimmon, work a HDC slip stitch in each of the first 20 stitches, then 1 puff stitch in the next stitch, then HDC slip stitch in the next 5 stitches, then 1 puff stitch in the next stitch. *Work HDC slip stitch in each of the next 17 stitches, then 1 puff stitch in the next stitch, then HDC slip stitch in the next 5 stitches, then 1 puff stitch in the next stitch. Repeat from * to the end of the row, until you end with HDC slip stitch in the last 20 stitches. Pull through with White on last stitch. Chain 1 and turn.

Repeat from * to the end of the row, until you end with HDC slip stitch in the last 17 stitches. Pull through with White on last stitch. Chain 1 and turn. 

ROW 33: Repeat row 25. 

ROWS 34 – 35: Repeat rows 26 – 27. 

ROW 36: Repeat row 28. 

ROW 37: Repeat row 25. 

ROWS 38 – 39: Repeat rows 26 – 27. 

ROW 40: Repeat row 24. 

Repeat rows 1 through 40 one more time, and then repeat rows 1 through 23 to finish the blanket. 

Here is a graph that shows all the counts as well if you’d like to print it out. The dots are the puff stitches and the numbers are the number of HDC slip stitches between each puff stitch.

Border

Weave in all ends with a tapestry needle.

Round 1: With puff side of blanket facing toward you, pull up a loop in top left corner with White and chain 2. Work one round of HDC around the blanket with White. Work 3 HDCs into each corner. Work one HDC per row on the sides and one HDC per stitch on top and bottom of blanket. 

Round 2: When you reach the starting corner, slip stitch into starting chain 2 and pull through with Persimmon. *Work HDC slip stitch into the first stitch, then a puff stitch in the next stitch. Repeat from * around the blanket. When you reach the starting corner, slip stitch into starting stitch and tie off.
