Table Cloth Crochet: Blue Diamond Filet

Recently I discovered crochet filet diamond stitch on Pinterest. There are so many types of diamond stitch made by crochet designers with amazing pattern and style making. I love diamond pattern and intend to create something a bit different with it. I wanted to make this pattern more detail and easy to understand, especially for the beginners. This is what I did, my pattern – Blue Diamond Table Cloth. It is easy to make and for sure a beginner-friendly stitch. Most of the pattern uses double crochet and chain for the main project, while for the border section, I use single crochet and chain. The most interesting part is added the tassels to each corner of the project. So, let’s begin.

DESIGN INSPIRATION

Diamonds are a luxurious, sparkle and shine. Most people who believe it as a sign of wealth would buy it as an important stuff for expressing love, gratitude and significance for their beloved person. For those who don’t, will only think it as a symbol or certain relationship or friendship.

YARN

For this project I used Milk Cotton Yarn 5 ply, no. 3 DK/light weight (80% of cotton and 20% of fiber, milk). You may purchase this kind of yarn through Shopee, Lazada, Ice Yarns with variations of colors, but of course with different price offer. Before you choose to purchase you might want to compare the price according to your own choice. Anyhow, you can also use any kind of yarn you prefer to as long as it is suitable for making table cloth project. But if you use natural fibers, make sure it is hand washing with a good quality so that all your projects would lasts as long as possible.

SIZE

Sample size is 24″ X 42″.

PATTERN NOTES

ROUND 1: Starting at the first stitch of the right corner of this edge, ch 1 (does not count as a st). In this same spot, make a sc, ch 2, sc into the same place. We will make sc, ch 2, sc in the same st into every corner of the project for the purpose of forming a facet. When turning to the left and right side of the project, we will add sc 2 per row of dc. While at the bottom and top of the project, we will work sc in each st. Just remember everytime you reached to the corner, make sure make sc, ch 2, sc into the same place.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR CROCHET PROJECT

Milk Cotton is a fiber that responds very well to wet and steam blocking. Wet blocking is a process that completely soaks the project and then allows it to dry in the desired shape. In steam blocking, you’ll use your iron and a damp cloth to create steam while stretching and shaping the project. So, you can do either one of them. If you choose to block, better use a blocking set for the best results.

I hope you enjoy making this crochet project.

Happy Crocheting and love what you do!
