This Modern Geometric Diamonds Crochet Blanket Pattern is perfect for when you want to make a comfy throw blanket to flow with your monochromatic aesthetic.

Even though I live in a state that stays warm all year, almost all of my friends seem to be constantly cold. Of course, I have no idea how that feels since I’m made of lava, but I certainly know how to help—by crocheting blankets for them!

One of my friends, Annya, has a gorgeous home, decorated with a modern, monochromatic design. I wanted her blanket to fit in with her specific aesthetic but I also wanted to ensure the blanket looked comfy and cozy. I had the perfect yarn in mind!

Before I get to those details, though, I want to invite you to come with me on a crafty side quest. I’ve joined some of my creative blog friends this month for the Creative Craft Blog Hop, hosted by Sara at Birdz of a Feather!

If you’ve come here from Ann at The Apple Street Cottage, I’m glad to have you here. Wasn’t her firecracker idea so cute? At the end of this post, I’ll show you where to go from here so you can see all of the super creative projects from this month’s hop.

Be sure to explore them all for maximum inspiration! Feel free to come back throughout the week if needed so you don’t get FOMO.

Back to the perfect yarn! As you may know, my favorite yarn is Bernat Blanket Yarn. I’ve made over 30 blankets using this squishy goodness and I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon. Although…Red Heart’s Hygge Yarn is a seriously close second. Watch this year as I publish new patterns using that gorgeous yarn.

For Annya’s blanket, I found a very cool variant called Bernat Blanket Tweeds. It comes in five different colorways at Joann’s, where I found mine. Michael’s also carries it, but I wasn’t able to find it on Amazon.

This blanket pattern would look just as stunning in the non-tweed lines as well, though. Bernat also makes a line called Bernat Blanket Speckle in six different colorways that would work perfectly. The choices are endless!

Let me show you how I made this blanket!

Rows 122-123: Chain 1. Single crochet in each stitch across. Turn. (103 single crochets on each row)

Do not cut yarn. Continue to border instructions.

Border

After the last single crochet stitch of the last row, chain 1. Add 1 triple crochet into that same last stitch.
That triple crochet should be on the side of the blanket now and it should be popped out in the same direction as the other triple crochet bumps.
Continue crocheting down the side of the blanket, alternating between triple and single crochets, one stitch at the end of each row.
Repeat these alternating stitches around the entire blanket. On the corners, add 3 stitches to the same space.
When you reach the starting chain 1, join your last border stitch to that initial chain 1 with a slip stitch.
Chain 1. Single crochet into each stitch around the blanket. Place 3 single crochets into each corner.
Join the last stitch to the first with a slip stitch. Cut, tie off, and weave in ends.

Note

You can substitute 154 yards of Size 6 Weight Super Bulky Yarn for the Blanket Yarn but the final sizing may be affected. Do a test swatch to compare.

Whew! So what did you think about that pattern? Were you able to follow along okay? At first glance, the diamond pattern can be daunting, but once you get going, you realize the pattern tells right away you if you’ve missed a stitch or counted wrong.

Did I have to frog a couple of rows a few times? Yep! It comes with the territory. We all make mistakes when we crochet, so imagine how many I make while creating and writing these patterns. Boatloads! It’s no big deal.

My friend, Annya, absolutely loves her blanket! I surprised her with it for her birthday and I don’t think what it was, sunk in immediately. When it did, she texted me super excited and sent me a pic of her snuggling under it while sipping tea. So cozy!

Y’all, I can’t explain exactly how incredibly soft this Crochet Modern Geometric Diamonds Blanket really is! Bernat Blanket Yarn is usually very soft to start with, but the Tweed version was especially velvety and squishy.

    1. Hi Debbie, the short answer is yes. You’d just need to add 12 stitches for each extra diamond, I believe. I’m working on the printable PDF version of this pattern right now and for those, I usually include alternate size information. -Marie

  1. Oh, I love the nubby texture of your pretty crocheted blanket…as I sit here in my tank top and shorts expecting heat indexes of 110 degrees today in Texas! LOL, but I have cozy throws that I rotate year round, too, and this is a beauty! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

  2. I love to crochet, and am always looking for a new project~ your blanket is beautiful, I love the pattern and yarn you used. Thanks for sharing the pattern, I am pinning it to try!

  3. My Granny taught me to crochet when I was a young girl but I haven’t done anything in years. This beautiful throw makes me want to get started again! Thanks for the pattern.

  4. Your crochet geometric blanket looks amazing, Marie! You’ve created a very hi-end looking work of art that looks like it’s store bought instead of handmade. I wish I could crochet. My mil tried to teach me but I could never pick it up! And I envy anyone who does crochet! Well done!
