I got to be a tester for yet another AMAZING mosaic blanket for Abi McIntyre. The pattern comes with three different options for the center banner, and as soon as I saw them I knew I wanted to make the tree version, and I also knew what colors I would use.
I chose to work my blanket in greens, red, and pinks. I was inspired by Christmas ribbon candy. This is one of my top three favorite projects I’ve ever crocheted
Because I was inspired by candy, I knew I needed to use Repeat Crafter Me’s free candy cane border pattern to complete my blanket. I feel like it came together perfectly
Edited to add: Here is a link to my project notes. This includes the brand and colorway of each yarn I used as well as how I did my striping sequences.
As soon as I saw the thumbnail, I knew whose this was. This is gorgeous, and that border is the perfect finish!
Aww, thanks! That is a huge compliment
Same! I saw the tiny pic and was all “ope! She’s at it again!”
Stunning. I covet it.
WOW.ZERS. This is so cozy and also festive as heck. Trees are my main holiday decorating theme so this really speaks to me.
These mosaic blankets are AMAZING! I love how it looks like you could take anything you can put on a grid and make it into a pattern. So cool!
This is fantastic!! As soon as I saw it, I thought “that reminds me of Christmas candy!” Then i read that you did that deliberately! Great work!
So amazingly perfect! Love the colors as well as the candy cane border.
Beautiful work as always! I love the candy cane border! Perfect touch.
The details you put into these is amazing. The candy stripe border is perfect.
wow! that looks time consuming and awesome. and it does remind me of ribbon candy!
Another one you’ve nailed! Fabulous.
Although I’m still obsessing over your puffin blanket. It’s calling me
This is so gorgeous! This turned out so great. I bet it’s nice and snuggly and warm with the mosaic crochet too. I LOVE that candy cane border for the final perfect touch.
