Christmas in July. Overlay mosaic crochet in rounds pattern
The pattern is rather detailed and consists of four different designs. The approximate size of the blanket working with light weight (DK) yarn will be about 1.5 -1.6 m (59-63 in). The size will depend on your tension, the hook size and the yarn weight you use for the project.
For this pattern you need at least two contrasting colors. I was using six.
