Diamond lace baby afghan



I went to the store the other day with plans to buy pink yarn for a baby afghan for someone who just had a girl, but when I saw this light aqua yarn I couldn't tear myself away from it. Isn't it a fun, pretty color? I seem to be drawn to all shades of turquoise/teal/aqua these days. Look at this up-close of the diamond lace pattern - I love it! It looks complicated but is really simple. I've made at least six scarves with this stitch pattern, and this was my first afghan with it - but it's become my go-to stitch when I want to whip up something quick but impressive looking!

I'm sorry it took so long, but I finally posted a tutorial on this stitch.

I would love to make a poncho with this stich. Would that be possible? Think you could whip up a pattern, or even better yet, a tutorial?! I learned to crochet last year via you tube while waiting around hospitals and doctors offices, so I'm just a novice.
