NEW July 2022 - Pattern has been updated with revised instructions for last Octagon popcorn round and a pretty border. Will leave both versions in the file for now. Yarn Pack available with pattern at Mary Maxim!

This design was inspired by the sun shining on colorful stepping stone mosaic tiles in my yard. I had long been thinking of turning a round mandala into an octagon in order to join in a blanket, and in this design I tried to imagine each colored piece as a differently shaped mosaic tile.

Pattern has been successfully completed by hundreds of crocheters. Original design calls for 6 octagons in aran weight, but many lovely versions have been made with more motifs in a thinner yarn. Suitable for the intermediate crocheter or adventurous beginner. Post stitches, popcorn stitches, and your basic crochet stitches combine into a textural design resembling mosaic tile.

May 2019 - Yarn packs in a new color way of Scheepjes Stonewashed XL are available at Jimmy Beans Wool.

Let’s chat about the pattern on my Ravelry board, my Facebook page, and my blog.
