I was inspired to create this design (technically it’s a variation of Flower Lattice) by a crochet blanket I found on the Yarnspirations website. They called it “Little Dots Will Do Ya,” but I remembered it as a play on the old Brylcreem commercial, “A little dab’ll do ya.” That’s why mine is called Diamond Dabs.

*The O2, U1, O2 construct is unusual looking, but don’t be intimidated by it. Follow exactly what’s written and it will work out.

This is a close-up of the O2, U1, O2 stitch combination. It might look a bit different, but it works.
