Diamond Stitch/FPTR 2 Together
The Diamond Stitch is a crochet pattern that creates a textured diamond-shaped design on your fabric. It’s achieved by using combinations of stitches that create a mesh-like pattern. I find that the pattern is especially beautiful when the FPTRs are worked in an accent colour.
Here’s how you can crochet the Diamond Stitch:
When you come to the part of your Diamond Stitch change colour and wrap your yarn around the hook twice.
You now have 4 loops on your hook.
Wrap the yarn around your hook again and pull through two loops – you now have 2 loops on your hook.
Wrap your yarn around your hook twice and insert your hook behind the stem of the next stitch. Wrap your yarn around the hook and pull it back through – you now have 5 loops on your hook.
Wrap the yarn around your hook again and pull through two loops – you now have 3 loops on your hook.
Wrap your yarn around your hook and pull through all three loops closing the stitch.
Remember, practice is key to getting comfortable with any new crochet stitch. The Diamond Stitch creates a lovely texture that can be used in various projects such as scarves, blankets, and more.
