Hello everyone, I am new on this site and was wondering if someone could help me with this pattern. It was one of my grandmothers and I would like to increase the size of the afghan as it is very small. I cannot figure out the pattern repeat. I tried it but the diamonds did not come out correctly the way I did it. Could someone please help me with this please. I would really appreciate any help or advice. Thank you.
