Hopscotch Blanket


Want an easy introduction to overlay mosaic crochet? The Hopscotch blanket is perfect for beginners!

  • This pattern is worked row by row (no turning) and utilizes an Envelope Border to avoid sewing all those ends.
  • Hopscotch is totally customizable in size and direction are included to do so.
  • This pattern includes both written instructions and a graph.
  • Coloring Options – Coloring is based on the odd & even rows. You use one color for odd rows and a second color for the even rows. You will begin using a new color for odd (or even) rows when you see “new color.” You will use the new color on all the odd (or even) rows until you hit the next color change command. In this way, you will be using each color for 11 rows (11 odd or 11 even rows, that is) making this a great stash buster because not much of each color will be needed!

Yarn & Supplies

Yarn amounts will vary depending on your size chosen, but below I give the amounts for the size blanket I made using a 4.5mm hook and an assortment of Paintbox Simply Aran yarn from my giant partial balls tub.

  • 4.5mm Hook
  • A note on hook sizes + yarn weights – Paintbox Simply Aran is labeled as a #4 weight, just like Worsted. However, it is thinner than any US brand of #4 yarn I have used, so you may wish to use a different hook. Overlay Mosaic is a lot of sc stitches – if you crochet tightly, I recommend using the hook size on the label, maybe a size larger. If you tend to crochet loosely, you may want to use a size smaller than the yarn label recommends. If this is your first mosaic project, it would be wise to work up a swatch or two, to see what you like best. Directions for swatch size included.
  • Each color change: 110 yards aran weight yarn
  • Solid Color Border – 450 yards worsted weight yarn total

Front Border: 200 yards worsted weight yarn

Back Border: 200 yards worsted weight yarn

SC Closing Round: 50 yards worsted weight yarn

  • Stitch Markers (to mark the width repeats, if desired)
