Not only will making the crochet diamonds be an instant boredom release!

 These crochet diamonds help you use up all those leftover yarns! 

 Once you have enough crochet diamonds it also creates a beautiful and cozy blanket that you can use for years to come. 

Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced crocheter, this stash-busting project is perfect for anyone who is looking to create something beautiful while also reducing their yarn stash or waste. 

I actually started crocheting these diamonds one night, by sheer accident.

I was just messing around with a hook and some yarn as I was bored. 

But as I made one diamond I soon realized I could use up a lot of my yarn stash that I had lying around. 

You know the little balls of leftover yarn that are too large to throw away yet not small enough to crochet any one particular thing.

And quickly made these diamonds for a blanket with all those little odds and ends of yarn I have lying around.

This is one of these projects I have at the side when I just want to mindlessly crochet for the sake of crocheting something.

Not want to start another project that will take too much brain power and Not Require much thought or focus but just to keep those hands busy.... yup! we've all been there! 

I admit I get bored crocheting projects. Especially if I am working on another large project and I seriously have too many Works in Progress to be finished lying around and I always have a few crochet projects on the go.

And we always have leftover yarn to use! So at the end of the project. If I have enough yarn left over I quickly whip up another diamond piece.

Probably like a LOT of us, yarn-a- holics, I have boxes of small balls of yarn just sitting around in bags collecting dust.

I refuse point blank to throw away good yarn, so I wanted something I could make using these odds and ends of wool. 

However, some of the leftover bits of yarn were not long enough for even an individual row to make a blanket, not even big enough to perhaps make into decent-sized squares. 

Like I did Here for the colorful Granny Square Balaclava

what to crochet with granny squares, yarn stash crochet projects, scrap yarn crochet projects, thikngs to crochet when you are bored

I wanted something that still would look attractive, was functional yet EASY, and mindless to Crochet. 

So Let me introduce the Diamond Crochet Blanket, perfectly symmetrical in its formation and easy to crochet by simply increasing and then decreasing at the ends of your rows. 

Easy Crochet Diamond Pattern

OVERVIEW of the Pattern: 

  • On the first half of the diamond, you will increase your work by creating 2 single crochet (2sc) in the LAST stitch of each row on the second half of the diamond. and work 2 single crochet 2sctogether  together in the LAST stitch of each row
  • You can also Make the Diamonds smaller or Larger - Just keep increasing to the middle check the size is what you want it to be across the widest point and DECREASE back down. 

Abbreviations used in The Diamond Crochet Pattern 

Ch- Chain
2sc - (inc)  work 2 single crochet into the same st. 
2sctog - (dec) work 2 single crochet together.  
sts - Stitches 

Yarn - Using your stash yarn (You can use any colors,  the only thing I do need to watch out for is the difference in yarn weight. If it is thicker I go down a hook or finer I go up a hook, but I mostly work in double knit/light worsted weight or Aran / worsted weight so it's not too much of a problem.)

Crochet Hook Size: Choose a Complimentary hook size. I use a 4.00mm hook as I crochet quite loosely.

Row 1: 2sc in first ch, ch1 turn. (2)

Row 40: sc in next st, 2sc together in last stitch, ch1 turn. (2)
Row 41: 2sc together in last stitch, ch1 turn. (1)

Fasten off by pulling a long length of yarn through and pulling tight to finish. (IMPROTANT these lengths will be used to sew the sides of the diamonds together. OR if you wish you can use a contrasting color to sew along the edges to join. 

I like to collect all the diamonds and block them as I go. As you can see I have several different types of yarn but by going up a hook or down a hook size I can achieve the SAME size of diamond. 

Crochet Diamond Blanket Pattern (diamond scrap yarn blanket crochet pattern)


I was given a huge bulk bag of Cream Aran but it was a bit of a nightmare to crochet with as it kept untwisting and splitting so the diamonds were small enough projects for me not to get too frustrated at.

I started to put them together like THIS. But you could arrange any colorways you wish

diamond scrap yarn blanket crochet pattern, Diamond Scrap Yarn Blanket Crochet Pattern



I am still adding to this blanket and have nowhere near finished it.

But I will be wanting to square it off eventually so I will need to make several HALF DIAMOND, several triangles, and 4 Quarter Diamonds for the corners.

Visit back soon to find these patterns added for you.

I am going to put this up on Ravelry and would LOVE to see your projects.

I have lots of Stashbusting Projects Like the Mui Mui Colourful Bucket Hat available for FREE on my Website here are some of my personal favorites. I love seeing how changing the colors makes the designs so unique.
