You can create this diamond square using filet crochet.

Finished Size: My project sample measures 6 1/2 inches by 6 inches. If you crochet this pattern, yours is likely to vary depending on the materials you use. I used an unidentified crochet thread to make my project sample.

This is such an intriguing pattern! You might not fully appreciate it until you see the two-color version, which resembles crocheted op-art.

When you put a bunch of these squares together, even the single-color version is lively; it seems to dance to a visual rhythm all its own.
