Free Knitting Pattern...Diagonal Lace 6" Blanket Square!


The Diagonal Lace 6" Square is a perfect blanket square for beginner knitters that uses easy stitches to create a beautifully textured lace pattern.  This is quick to stitch up and super fun to play around with colors.  I did chunky stripes for mine, but you can play around and do a solid square, or lots of stripes too!

This pattern is part of the Harmony Blanket 2018 KAL.  Want to join?  Visit the Facebook group here:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1224450260982937/
