Acres of Diamonds Afghans + Pillow Pattern Set

This month, Carol Hegar from Shady Lane Original Crochet Designs has given us a copy of her Acres of Diamonds Afghans + Pillow Pattern set to review and a second copy to giveaway to one of my readers!

I really love this design. It reminds me of a quilt my Grandparents used to have on their spare bed. I love the texture created by the stitch and how the finished afghan looks in a single yarn color.

This 7-page ePattern is written in U.S. Crochet Terms. Graphs are also provided for each of the designs.

These patterns use only simple crochet stitches. The stitches used are single crochet (sc) and double crochet (dc). You will also need to be able to recognize the front and back loops of a stitch.

The easy, classic design is created by crocheting single crochet stitches in the back loop of a stitch and making double crochet stitches in the remaining front loop of the stitch 2 rows below.

The dropped double crochet technique is super easy-to-do and Carol has prepared a helpful video tutorial here, to demonstrate it.

You will find the full abbreviations list, important pattern notes and a diagram to illustrate hook placement for working dc stitches in a stitch 2 rows below, on page 2. Page 2 also provides 3 options for the Afghan Fringe for the project.

Dear Crochet Friend,

Acres of Diamonds is a good beginner pattern, very easy to do. The classic design forms a solid diamond centered within a larger continuous diamond outline. Instructions included are for a 42″ x 59″ afghan, a 30″ x 41″ baby afghan and a 12″ square pillow. Instructions include the written pattern plus optional graph. I personally love the graph format as the design is all laid out for you and you can see what it looks like. But some prefer a row-by-row written pattern with number of sc, or dc to work, so we include that as well.

See my website for an instructional how-to video showing how easy the dropped dc stitch is to do!

Visit our website home page for the video how-to tutorial.

  1. I would make the afghan but perhaps more of a throw size. Gorgeous design.

  2. Romantic Rhapsody is one of my favorites and Sweet Teddy Bear Afghan would be my picks.

  3. I love Shady Lane’s Picket Fence Afghan. It reminds me of a garden and the springtime.

  4. I have 3 grand daughters and they would just love the Sweet Teddy Bear Afghan. It’s just one of my favorites that Shady Lane has.
