One day, I tried to design a gingerbread house, but I got a little carried away and ended up designing ‘Home for Christmas’ which is a full blanket size.
One of my lovely testers, Sherri, asked if I could design a pillow-sized gingerbread house – and well, who am I to refuse?
I’m really pleased with how it came out and as you can see from my tester examples, the more colourful the better.
You can create a pillow, wall hanging, table mat, or anything you can think of. It’s up to you.
Three PDFs are available - one using US terms, one using UK terms and a separate full chart PDF that is compatible with Knit Companion if that’s how you prefer to work.
Otherwise, you can use the charts in the main PDF, either by printing them out and taping them together or viewing them on your mobile/tablet/laptop.
The main PDF has 4 easy-to-read charts (with Xs) and corresponding written instructions.
You can use any yarn and corresponding hook you like for this pattern, just remember high contrast colours are better for mosaic crochet.
This design looks great either in two colours, or you could go for it and go full mosaic tapestry with many colours. The choice is yours.
Please note that this pattern does not give instructions or yarn stats for mosaic tapestry crochet.
