Have you noticed these giant leaves are very popular right now? I love how they give a space a happy, carefree, tropical vibe.
To become the iconic leaf, the plants must fenestrate (this is when the leaves split and get holes). Knowing how poorly I manage to take care of houseplants, if I had one of these in my house it would probably never get to that stage. 😬🤣
I drew this chart smaller than some of my previous blanket patterns. I like having lots of different sizes for you to choose from. Sometimes we want intricate patterns that are huge and sometimes we want a smaller project.
I personally like to have multiple WIPs (works in progress) of varying sizes and difficulties so that I can work on whatever I want in the moment. Something big, something small, something easy, something hard, etc.
If you match my gauge, your finished “Monstera Leaf” blanket will be 46″ x 60″ / 117cm x 152cm. I think black or dark green would be the best choice for the Main Color and either a light green or possibly an off-white as the Accent Color / Contrasting Color. But, of course, you are free to choose any color you want!
On Ravelry, get 30% off this new pattern and any others you add to your cart at the same time until 11:59 pm, May 24, 2021 CST. No code needed.
Etsy sets things up differently, but you can still get 30% off as long as you add a minimum of 2 patterns to your cart and use code “MonsteraSale” until 11:59 pm, May 24, 2021 CST (no code needed).
A final note, just in case you weren’t already aware, I have tutorials on both techniques (all my patterns are written for interlocking crochet and overlay mosaic crochet) on YouTube. Both techniques are easier than they look, so give it a try!
