A Mosaic Christmas

 New Mosaic Christmas Patterns seem to be published almost daily and it's hard to keep track, of course when I see one I want to make it because every single one of them is beautiful.

I had intended to make the Letitcia Holiday Blanket shown below but decided that I couldn't justify making another blanket at the moment and have decided to use the pattern to make cushions instead.

I really enjoyed making this it was a really fun project. I used the stitch count for the small  size and just followed the pattern with a few slight changes.  I added a green panel at the top and bottom of the cushion to get the correct height and at each side to get the width which I overlapped at the back to form an envelope opening in which to insert the cushion pad, I made four button holes and will add Christmas tree buttons although it doesn't really need any, I'm waiting for them to arrive or I would have shown a back view as well.

(If anyone would like to make this and would like more details just let me know)

I used Dk yarn

Green - Home Bargains (just £1 for 100 gram and it's good quality,soft and squishy) 

Red and navy - Stylecraft Special Dk

White Sparkly (although it doesn't show up in the photo) for the trees and plain white for the pom poms (snowballs) From Wilco.

I bought a cushion pad from Amazon sized 20 x 12 inches.

I plan to make more cushions using the other panels from the pattern and if they turn out as cute as the one above I will gift them at Christmas.

I have complied a list of  Christmas Mosaic Patterns and will add it to my Mosaic Crochet Post and will update it as and when new Patterns become available.

I have already included this blanket in the original post but I'm highlighting it again to remind everyone that  part of  the pattern is free and the full pattern discounted until 23rd November......

  5. I love the cushion idea, so much quicker to make up. I'm like you, not sure I need another afghan for myself or to gift to someone. I still haven't decided on my next project.
