Raised Diamonds Points Blanket


Dramatic diamonds rise up off the surface of this throw. Super cozy in this soft bully yarn.
  • Gauge/Yarn
    Pattern includes gauges of 4.0 and 5.0 stitches per inch, however, the gauge is very flexible.

    The blue sample uses Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky on US 10 needles. The green scarf uses Cascade Venezia Worsted on a US 6. You'll want a yarn with enough loft or one that is solid enough to stand up. Any Merino or blend will work wonderfully.
