Welcome to a winter wonderland of stitches and festive creations!
As the holiday season approaches, it's the perfect time to cosy up with your crochet hooks and dive into the magic of Christmas and winter-themed mosaic patterns.
In this blog, I'm thrilled to showcase my own collection of winter designs and some of my favourite patterns crafted by talented designers. From whimsical snowflakes to charming holiday motifs, join me on a journey through the artistry of crochet, where we celebrate the joy of creating and sharing beautiful pieces for the most wonderful time of the year.
Sholach Mosaic Afghan
Sholach is, of course, the first on the list. I designed this back in the summer of 2021 for friends who own a Christmas Tree Farm. This is by far my most popular design of all time, and the creativity and colour palettes I see from talented crocheters worldwide just amazes me.

Winter Wonderland Mosaic CAL
Designed by Ana Morais Soares of One Skein of Love, this gorgeous blanket has 14 different patterns and is the perfect winter blanket for crocheters of all levels.

Snowscape Winter Mosaic Afghan
Snowscape is another of my designs, which gives you a choice of three different central patterns.
• Design 1 – with a central row of snowflakes • Design 2 – with a central row of deer • Design 3 – with a central row of pine trees
Why have one winter design when you can have three?

HoHoHo is just Christmas in a blanket, designed by Rosina Plane, originally as a crochet-along, but you can now purchase the whole pattern. Check those little robins! Cuteness.

Home for Christmas
Another of my patterns now, and I loved designing this one... One day, I started designing a gingerbread house, but I got a little carried away – and ‘Home for Christmas’ was born.

Let it snow
Sometimes the simplest designs leave the most lasting impression, and Janneke Zaat's exquisite blanket from the Dutch Hooker Crochet perfectly exemplifies this principle.
