Freebie Friday – Crochet Diamond Pattern Afghan

I’m very excited to have found a pattern for my mom’s rebozo (shawl) that I had previously posted about. I always loved it and when she passed away, it came to me.

Mom made this over 30 years ago. Still beautiful!

It’s like a little hug from mom 🙂

Just recently, out of nowhere, I saw an image of it on Pinterest. Even better, it had a free pattern. I love the age we live in. As time passes, I’m finding more and more vintage patterns of things my mom made that I don’t know how to make. It’s a nice feeling finding them. I was actively looking for those patterns but finding this one was more like a gift from mom, precisely because I wasn’t actively looking for it. I am so happy to be able to share it.

This is the image I found online. Looks the same to me.

  1. That is a lovely shawl! After my mom passed away my brother and I came across a few blankets that she had made years and years ago stored in her closet. Isn’t it wonderful when little hello’s from heaven pop up. 🙂 Now, am I mistaken or does it look like that raised diamond pattern is created by planned placement of some front post crochet?
