I have had such a great time at Yarndale last weekend, and it was wonderful to meet some of you. It is always wonderful to hear that I can help you make beautiful things. And speaking of which, today we start another beautiful thing, we are starting with the half diamonds in our Ubuntu blanket. The half diamonds are my favorite part of the project, and over the next 3 weeks we will be making 6 of them.

Video tutorials Part 4
For the half diamonds we jump right in and start with the center flower motif. You need to make 6 identical diamonds and in the video I show you how to do them step by step. As always the videos are available in English with UK terminology in right and left handed versions; as well as Dutch in, again, right and left handed versions.
You might notice that your half diamonds are uneven, and even curl a bit inward. Don’t worry about this, it will straighten itself out as the motif grows.
Did you know that in the video description there is a link to the start of each round? If you click on the time stamp given, it will take you to the start of that round in the video.
Next week we grow the half diamonds further.
