The Daniel Diamond Blanket is a beautiful Tunisian crochet blanket that was inspired by intricate patchwork patterns. This blanket is a pleasure to make and would make a wonderful gift for a loved one or a new addition to a family.

The blanket features a diamond colourwork pattern that is alternated with squares of plain colour and simple colourwork in rows.
