Diamond Stitch Tutorial

    The Diamond stitch tutorial looks modern and stylish and it can be used to crochet so many things. If you have not tried it before I recommend you give it a go. It’s a little tricky to begin with but after you get the hang of it there’ll be no stopping you. The Diamond stitch is a solid crochet stitch with no gaps and the most amazing diamond shape texture. Unfortunately, the stitch in single sided meaning one side will be plain and the other textured. Personally I still think it looks great for blankets, bags, and pillows.

    How to crochet the Diamond stitch

    The diamond stitch tutorial is intermediate/advanced skill level. As well as the standard crochet stitches will will need to be able to drop rows, work in front posts and it involves splitting stitches. The pattern is a 4 row repeat. You can use any yarn with the recommended hook to try out the diamond stitch.
