I made another mosaic blanket. I love the colors in this Lion Brand Mandala yarn. This specific color is Chimera. I used just over 2 cakes for the rainbow striping, and just over one skein of the Mega Ball yarn I ordered through Hobbii.
And here it is all folded up
The original pattern is worked in inset mosaic, but I didn’t like how elongated that looks. You can see that method in the white blanket I originally started. I laid it on top of the black blanket I started in overlay mosaic to compare. I like the squareness of the black blanket more.
It wasn’t hard to convert this pattern. I did an envelope border so I wouldn’t have to deal with a bazillion pesky ends to weave in. This one took forever but was easy and fun.
It is not reversible. Here is the back. I took this picture with flash on to show how hard it was to see the stitches I was trying to pick up for the border.
