Diamond Tapestry Crochet Square


Each Square on the chart represents one single crochet.

I learned this technique at the time I was putting together my red, white and blue star afghan, about 15 years ago. There are other tapestry crochet techniques to learn. I don't anyone to be confused when they come across a different way to tapestry crochet.

This is the yarn bobbin. You can click on the image, print it out and use it for a pattern to create your own yarn bobbins. You can cut a tiny slit to the inside of cross bar to secure your yarn.

  3. Dear Teresa,

    What is actually a tapestry crochet? It looks just as if it is a diagram/motif on a piece of crocheted square. Sort of like quilting pieces of cloth to get a square to be joined later to create a quilted blanket.

  4. Paul, It is where you change the colors as you crochet. I get questions frequently about how to change colors with yarn. There are some really elaborate crochet pieces with faces, animals, shapes. Some will use yarn bobbins to create their images and others will carry the yarn along. I did the small square swatch to show the basics of tapestry crochet. I wanted to demonstrate something that people can use in an afghan or project. There is much more to tapestry crochet than the square I made. I hope the link below will show up. It is a gallery of elaborate tapestry pieces. I think of tapestry as painting with yarn or thread.
