Mosaic Dream Blanket Crochet-Along by Emma Leith in West Yorkshire Spinners ColourLab DK & Deramores Studio DK
Join the Crochet-Along (CAL) with this Mosaic Dream Blanket Crochet Along. Designed by Emma Leith, Mosaic Dream is a fusion of Emma's passion for Mosaic Art and Crochet. Emma has shared her story and inspiration on this beautiful design;
"The journey with Mosaic Dream began with the little ’Floral Tiles’ that feature in Week 4. I wanted to create a new way of working with the beautiful colours in WYS ColourLab Print Prism Brights which really come alive when set against a creamy white background. Colour and texture were my primary aim for this blanket and I wanted to put a modern twist on the classic squares with a border blanket. Many of you will know I do love my bobble and popcorn stitches and whilst the bobble does make an appearance it’s really the front post double trebles that steal the limelight this time. Much of the border plays with this technique which delivers oodles of texture whilst framing the colours beautifully. This blanket is an abundance of squish and colour set against the calming neutrals of grey and cream which makes it the perfect autumn winter project!"

Pure wool responds beautifully to blocking and my top tip when working this blanket is to block it each week to keep the perfect shape. Emma will be posting tips each week on her Instagram feed, so keep your eyes peeled for those.
You will also require a 4mm Crochet hook. Discover more from Emma's colourful world of crochet on her blog.

Really happy with this kit. The colours took a bit of working out, as the pattern references stylecraft, but I purchased the Yorkshire spinners colour lab pack. Easy though once you sit and think about it. It is coming along beautifully, and although the instructions look a bit mind boggling to start, it soon becomes clear when you’re doing it. The photographs help enormously. I’ll try and share a picture once it’s done.
Lovely item and definitely on my queue of to do’s
Love the colours, an affordable everyday yarn, more a dk thickness than a fully thick Aran so definitely check tension on Aran patterns. Delivery was smooth, no problems.
Speedy service, thank you
