Today, we’ll work this elegant baby blanket. It’s made of diamond waffle stitches and not as hard to crochet as it looks. Once you get the idea, you’ll see how everything gets easier. You’ll love the result!

with 6 mm crochet hook
foundation: ch 83. (multiples of 4 + 3 ch)
ROW 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each st across, turn.<82>
ROW 2: ch 2, dc in each st across, turn. <82>
ROW 3: ch 1, fptr around 3rd sc from row 1, sk 1 on row 3, sc in next 3 sts, *fptr2tog (1st incomplete is around the same sc just worked, 2nd incomplete is around the sc post 3 sts further), sk 1 on row 3, sc in next 3 sts, repeat from * until 2 sts left, fptr around last sc post worked from row 1, sk 1 on row 3, sc, turn.
ROW 4: ch 2, dc in each st across, turn. <82>
ROW 5: ch 1, sc in next 2 sts, *fptr2tog (1st incomplete is around the fptr 2 rows below, 2nd incomplete is around the next fptr stitches 2 rows below), sk 1 on current row, sc in next 3 sts, repeat from * until end, turn.
From now on repeat rows 2-5 until piece is desired length. Make sure to end on row 5 repeat.
change hook to 5 mm
round 1: insert hook in the right upper corner, ch 2, dc in same st, dc in each st until 1 sts left(next corner), place (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in same corner st. Continue on the left side place 2 dc for each dc row and 1 dc for each sc row and (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in same st for the corner at the end. Repeat these all the way around until last corner. 2dc in last corner, ch 1, join with a sc into first st. So, we can diretly start from the corner.
round 2: ch 2, 2 dc in same st, dc in each st across, and work (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in corner spaces. At the end, join with same as round 1.
round 3: repeat round 2.
round 4: ch 2, 4 dc in same space, sk 2, sc, *sk 2, 7dc in same st, sk 2, sc, repeat from * until corner. (If you have more sts than you needed, you can sk 3 instead of 2 before you reach the corner.) 9dc in corner st, and repeat same process for the rest until beginning corner space, 5dc in same space, fasten off and close it nicely. Change color to pink.
round 5: start from where you finished round 4, (insert hook into back loop of 5th dc st, ch 1, sc, p, sc), sc in next 4 sts, sk sc st of previos row, sc in next 4 sts, p, sc in next 3 sts, and so on. Always work in back loops, and make picots right in the middle of dc groups of round 4. Remeber skipping the sc sts of previous round. (4th is for 7dc groups, and 5th is for 9dc groups which are corners)
