The Mayan Crochet Blanket pattern is an exploration of the Yucatan peninsula through crochet. In each 20" square motif, the radiating lines of the central hexagon reflect the pyramids at Chichen Itza, while the surrounding shapes are reminiscent of the Mayan calendar. Enclosing it all are the rippling forms of the subtropical forest and the clear blue skies.
Any adventurous crocheter with basic skills will enjoy this master class in crochet techniques. With step by step instructions, ample photos, video tutorials and detailed explanations of unusual manoeuvres, designer Shelley Husband is at your side every step of the way. The directions are presented in both round-by-round instructions and standardised international charts, so you can choose the method you prefer. The blanket is shown in two versions. Make it in a single colour to show off the intricate stitch work, or work in multiple colours for a kaleidoscopic effect.
The pattern includes yarn requirements for both colour versions and three size options, determined by the number of squares. The approximate measurements are:
4 squares = 118 cm x 118 cm (46″ x 46″)
6 squares = 118 cm x 172 cm (46″ x 68″)
9 squares = 172 cm x 172 cm (68″ x 68″)
