Everyone needs blankets
Of course, not all blanket patterns are created equal. Indeed, some are so much more than others. Therefore, to get you started, here are some wonderful, fun patterns that will get you rolloing. However, we also thought that a central theme is in order, so today’s focus is on mosaic blanket ideas. To summarize, like their namesakes, they take small geometric components and work them into a larger pattern. Consequently, there are multiple visual and sometimes textural levels to each one of these. Thus you can explore them with sight and touch for days at a time.

Finally, let’s get back to classic mosaics. This particular one is a wonderful example of conceptual layers. Firstly, it starts with the color shifts between the bars. Then, the bars are arranged into diagonals and squares. Finally, those squares form into larger squares. Truly, I love the squares on squares aesthetic.
