Some Days Are Diamonds Blanket

I've been told perfection is boring. Well, I'm certainly not boring (just ask my friends) and I'm definitely not perfect (just ask my kids)! Because of this I have a standing policy of rewarding people who nicely bring an error to my attention with a free single pattern download from my Ravelry pattern store.

Some days are diamonds some days are stones

This stunning, extra-warm blanket is made with Mighty Stitch Bulky and features a woven diamond pattern. Slipping the traveling stitches on the wrong side makes the diamond design “pop” on the right side while creating a visually pleasing, textured wrong side. Both charted and written directions are provided. All of the traveling stitches can be done without a cable needle–step-by-step directions are included in the Abbreviations section. The finished blanket is large enough for a twin size bed–plenty big enough to cuddle up with your sweetie on a cold winter’s night!

Modifications for the shawl version of this pattern are included!
