Pattern Notes


• Nya Mosaic Blanket is a repeating pattern of geometric stripes (chart) and dividers. Each geometric stripe is made with yarn in two shades.

• You can either follow the chart or written instructions.

• Ch1/ch2 in the beginning of each row doesn’t count as a st. So first sc/dc of each row is made in first stitch of previous row.

• All dc’s are made in sts of same color from 2 rows below – always in front of work.

• Change color on the last yarn over when there are still 2 loops on hook. Yarn is changed after every 2 rows.

Reading the Chart


• Chart is read from bottom to top. Each row in chart represents two rows of same color. Rows on the RS (1,2,3, etc.) are read from right to left, and rows on WS (1a, 2a, 3a, etc.) are read back across from left to right. The first square of each row shows which color is used for 2 rows (1-1a, 2-2a, 3-3a, etc.)

• Each square of the chart shows 1 stitch or 1 skipped stitch. When squares of different colors appear in the row – they should be skipped. So instead of working them – make a number of ch (always 1 ch more than a number of skipped sts – to prevent your work from pulling) and skip needed sts. So for 1 skipped st you will ch2, for 2 skipped sts – ch3, for 3 skipped sts – ch4, etc.

• On next row on RS when you will crochet with different color – you will make dc in these skipped sts from two rows below. Dc’s are always made in front of your work, in front of chains of previous rows, so spacs are always skipped. (see pics below).

Following chart: start with “Begin” section, then repeat “One Repeat” six or more times (for a larger blanket), and finish with “End” section.

Common Mistakes:


• When working on RS it is very important to skip correct number of stitches. The mistakes can appear when you finish dc, make several chains and then skip wrong number of stitches (or don’t skip them at all) behind or just next to dc. (pic 1)

• When working on WS be sure to make sc in EVERY st without missing any. Sometimes dc can be “hiding”, so be sure not to miss them. (pics 2-3)

Border


The pattern for the Border is the same as for Divider – worked along two long sides of the blanket. Color for another side of the blanket are given in brackets.

Note: while working along the sides of the blanket, insert the hook under the floats of yarn on the side to hide them.

Row 1 (RS) Attach Yarn D (F) with ss in the corner before long side of the blanket. Ch2, 1dc along the side evenly, turn.
Rows 2-10. Same as for Divider:
Row 2 – continue with Yarn D (F),
Rows 3-4 with Yarn G (C),
Rows 5-6 with Yarn F (B),
Rows 7-8 with Yarn G (C),
Rows 9-10 with Yarn D (F).
Fasten off, weave in ends, block blanket to measurements.
