This PDF crochet PATTERN gives you easy, step-by-step instructions how to crochet my beautiful New Kid On The Block Mosaic Crochet Throw. This modern-meets-retro design was inspired by my Granny’s favourite teacup back in the 1970s. She was very particular about her cups of tea, and only certain cups met with her approval.

This design is far easier to crochet than it looks. The only stitches required are chain, dc and tr crochet. Suitable for beginner level upwards, this 8-page pattern includes:

Full written row-by-row instructions (in UK crochet terms, US terms given in Abbreviations list)
Pattern Notes
Stitch abbreviations
Special stitch instructions
Mosaic crochet chart and instructions

You can either use the Scheepjes Colour Crafter DK yarn listed in the pattern, or any DK yarn you like. I used 4 x balls Yarn A (Delft 1117) and 3 x balls Yarn B (Zandvoort 1218) to achieve this size. You will also need a 5.5mm (US I/9) crochet hook.

Your finished throw will measure approximately 90 x 130cm/35.5 x 51.2in. The pattern gives full details how to adjust the starting chain to make a size to suit you.

Please note: due to the nature of this 2-row inset version of mosaic crochet, short lengths of chain are made on the reverse. See photo of close-up of the reverse side. These can either be left loose or can be covered and incorporated into other stitches to hide them. Full details are given in the pattern.
