Diamond Lattice Crochet Stitch combines single crochet (sc) and front post treble stitches (fptr) to create a lattice-like network of textured diamonds over a solid fabric. It is a variation of the Diamond Waffle stitch, which features double crochet stitches instead of single crochet.
It works well for projects like blankets, shawls, and afghans. It is an 8-row repeat crochet pattern with each diamond motif spread over 6 stitches.
