Pattern Details

The Across the Diamond Blanket is knit with super bulky weight yarn so it is quick to knit on big needles. Knit flat, in one piece, back and forth on US size 13 circular knitting needles. This pattern uses standard U.S. knitting terms. Written pattern with row by row instructions. DIRECTIONS FOR FIVE SIZES: Approximate sizes after blocking… XL: 48” wide x 52” long Large: 41” wide x 47” long Medium: : 37.5” wide x 42” long Small (Crib/Lap): 34” wide x 37” long Baby: 30.5” wide x 32” long Any of the blanket sizes may be made longer by adding pattern repeats. Each pattern repeat adds about 5” to the length of the blanket. Pattern includes estimates for additional yardage needed to make blankets longer. SKILL LEVEL: Easy You will need to know how to cast on stitches, knit and purl confidently, read a row by row knitting pattern, bind off stitches and weave in ends. Blocking of finished knitting is recommended. SUPER BULKY YARN: XL: 1000 - 1100 yards Large: 740 - 800 yards Medium: 620 - 670 yards Small (Crib/Lap): 500 - 540 yards Baby: 380 - 410 yards This pattern will work well with many super bulky weight yarns including Lion Brand Thick & Quick Solids and Lion Brand Hometown USA. You may also experiment with knitting two strands of bulky or worsted weight yarn together…remember you will need about twice as much yardage! Be sure to buy additional yarn if you plan to add length to your blanket. The texture of the pattern will show up best with solid color yarns. NEEDLES: In order to accommodate the large number of stitches, long circular needles are highly recommended. I use US size 13 circular knitting needles 38” in length for larger blankets. For a crib or baby blanket, circular needles in a shorter length could be used. NAME OF PATTERN: If you are a baseball fan, you may have already guessed the inspiration for the name of the Across the Diamond blanket. Sets of four purl stitches in this pattern are similar to the layout of a baseball diamond. I happened to start designing this blanket while watching the World Series.

I have been knitting since I was about 8 years old. My mother taught me to knit and my parents encouraged me to explore all kinds of arts & crafts activities by providing me with the materials that I needed to create. As a girl, I loved to sew (I spent hours using my mother’s sewing machine making clothes for my dolls), knit, draw and paint. In high school I spent all my extra time at school hanging out in the art room. In college I worked at a cute little yarn shop. Many years later...I started designing and publishing knitting patterns in November 2013...I love it! I love giving hand knit gifts to my friends and family. I love to see the smile on their faces when they open the gift I made for them. I hope that you enjoy using my knitting patterns to create special projects for your home, friends & family.
