Diamond Blanket Crochet Kit
Customise your bundle below:
Slip into the mindful flow of making these textural stitches.
The Diamond Blanket looks great draped over your lounge or on the end of a bed, and even feels amazing underfoot as a floor rug.
The name of this blanket came from the shape of the blanket, but the diamond stone is a symbol of love, and holds energetic properties that help with self-worth and self-love. I hope making this blanket is joyful for you, and that it continues to wrap you in love (or whoever you’re making it for), for many, many years.
how to make the Diamond Blanket
We’ll crochet your Diamond Blanket using gorgeously soft and chunky merino wool that will look good for a long time.
You’ll start at the bottom point of the diamond and each row increases outwards until you reach halfway, and then the rows decrease inwards until you reach the top point of the diamond. A border is crocheted inline as part of the blanket, and the centre panel is constructed of linen stitch.
This blanket is diamond shaped, which means even though the sides are the same length, it is wider across the middle than the central height of the blanket.

Homelea Bliss is a premium Australian merino wool yarn which is fully grown and processed in Australia (no offshore processing). It is uniquely made to last – it won’t leave fluff everywhere, and it will look good after many uses.
Our yarns are as natural as possible which means you may find some vegetable matter in your wool. This is easily removed and is a beautiful connection between the sheep that grew the wool and the finished product.
Homelea Bliss merino wool yarn is a super chunky or super bulky yarn that is 1cm (0.4in) thick. Larger yarns like Homelea Bliss do not have a ply size.
