Overlay Mosaic Crochet Pattern inspiration
Hooking Hearts are the final overlay mosaic crochet patterns included in the House of Cards Blanket pattern. Easy for some, this mosaic crochet heart pattern presented a challenge for me as I kept tweaking it to balance it in the square and relative to the other blocks already included in the blanket.
Released on the day of love, this pattern works up quickly and would work great as the motif for a wall hanging or a cushion if you so choose.

To make my Hooking Hearts mosaic crochet blanket squares I used Paintbox Simply Aran multiple times perfecting the various shapes. Sage, Paper White, Teal, Dark Teal and Racing Green were all used as they are in my two versions of the blanket.
