I hope these stars will be lucky for you!
I drew this pattern last year and had it almost ready for publishing at the beginning of January. Then I ran into some snags regarding the brackets.
So, I found some testers and we ironed out the issues together. And it is finally ready for everyone!
The Lucky Stars Set has a blanket and a square pattern. The square was repeated 9 times for the blanket, but then the edges were covered over with a border design so the repeats don’t work out exactly.
The square makes a baby blanket on its own. I know people like this size because it’s more manageable. You can create a few and join them together if you want manageable pieces but a large blanket.
Or, if you prefer to just do it all at once, jump straight into the blanket. It is about 63″ wide and tall.
Both patterns are written up for interlocking and overlay mosaic crochet, of course. See my tutorials if you’re new to these techniques: youtube.com/c/AshleeBrotzellDesigns
I crocheted the square to show off both techniques.
I used Lion Brand Mandala and some baby weight white. The pattern says worsted weight and a 4.5 mm hook. This yarn is a light worsted so I used a 3.75 mm hook.
The colorway is called “Gnome” and I let it flow from orange to blue when I was doing the interlocking technique. I used white as the Accent Color (AC).
I used white as the Main Color (MC) for my mosaic squate. I grabbed a second skein so I could make the color gradient go back to pink after purple.
The “wrong side” of the interlocking square is a reverse of the front. The mosaic square is striped on the back with a faint impression of the design.
I happened to be working on these squares when I answered a question about the differences between the two techniques. So, you can see these squares in a quick video comparing thickness here.
If you are ready to grab your copy of the pattern you can get the set (with the blanket pattern and the square pattern) on Etsy or Ravelry. They are listed separately on Ravelry as well; get the Lucky Stars Throw blanket pattern or the Lucky Stars Square pattern.
These patterns are all 30% off until March 9, 2021 to celebrate their release! No codes needed.
