Good morning, friends! After a brief week’s vacation, I’m back for the next pattern in my Memory Match series: the Diamond Card! I will say upfront, however, that this particular shape gave me the most trouble when I designed it, so hopefully I will be able to explain it without a lot of confusion. It’s really just a lot of increasing and decreasing, so if you know how to do that, you’re good to go!
Memory Match Game: Diamond Card
By Lauren Lasher
I used a light blue worsted weight yarn, and a 4.25 or 5mm hook.
Row 1: Work 2 sc into 1st chain. Ch 1, turn.
Row 2: Sc in next stitch, 2 sc into last stitch. Ch 1, turn.
Row 3: Sc in next stitch, 2 sc into remaining 2 stitches (2 sc in ea stitch). Ch 1, turn.
Row 4: Sc in next stitch, 2 sc into each of the remaining 3 stitches. Ch 1, turn.
Row 5: Repeat Row 4.
Row 6: Sc2tog, sc in next 3 stitches, sc2tog. Ch 1, turn.
Row 7: Sc2tog, sc in next stitch, sc2tog. Ch 1, turn.
Row 8: Sc2tog, sc in last stitch. Ch 1, turn.
Row 9: Sc2tog in last 2 remaining stitches. Fasten off, weave in ends.
That’s all! Hopefully, I’ve made it clear enough. If you can figure out a better way to make a diamond shape, please feel free (and maybe tell me how you did it!).
Make 2. My game consists of 12 cards, with 2 cards of each shape. You can make more if you like, but I think 12 cards is big enough for a fun memory match game. Happy makings!
