Overlay Mosaic Crochet Pattern inspiration
Hooking Spades are the second overlay mosaic crochet patterns included in the House of Cards Blanket pattern. For some reason I keep calling this card Aces. Maybe I have spent a little too much time playing Black Jack!
My designs are led totally by inspiration, and of the cards included in the House of Cards Blanket this is one of those that turned out to be the easiest to work out and up!
Mosaic crochet afghan pattern yarn & materials
To make my Hooking Spades 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.
For alternative yarns for this design Stylecraft Special Aran, or even a cotton version using any of the available weights in the Paintbox Simply Cotton range.
