Gather Your Supplies
This diamond granny square pattern is super versatile so you can choose any size yarn and a hook that coordinates. In the photo above, I have used Red Heart Soft white and wine and for the video tutorial, royal blue. I have paired this yarn with a size 5 mm crochet hook.
You will use approximately 3 yards per diamond granny square.
Gauge and Sizing
Your finished (unblocked) diamond granny square will measure approximately 3″ on each side, 3.5″ from soft corner to soft corner and 5″ from sharp corner to sharp corner.
The pattern and video tutorial cover how to crochet a diamond granny square that is three rounds. However, know that you can continue to add rounds to make a larger diamond.
The pattern teased in the photo above will be available here at B.hooked Crochet on July 17, 2016!

I recommend blocking your diamonds after you have crocheted and sewn in your ends. This will give your diamonds a more defined shape. For more information on blocking and how to block your diamonds, check out my tutorial on blocking.
