Mosaic Sampler Blanket Pattern

This tutorial video shows the first section of the Mosaic Sampler Blanket. The blanket is divided into 6 sections, each with a different stitch pattern. It also includes instructions for 3 different sizes.

This first stitch pattern is the easiest, so we can focus on casting on and learning how to read the mosaic instructions and chart. The video follows along with the written pattern, and you will need to refer to the pattern for specific stitch counts for the various sizes.

As I release each new section, I will add it to the pattern post. So that post will always have the most up-to-date and most complete version of the pattern. Check the MKAL post for the schedule and tutorial links for the previous sections.
