Aztec Dreams CAL – Part 1

Aztec Dreams CAL was designed by Micki Devlin of Mims Designs. This Tunisian Crochet CAL is a stunning piece of art, created as a labor of love for Micki’s brother as a picnic blanket for his motorcycle adventures with his Club logo in the center.

Everyone that saw the blanket or photos wanted a pattern for the design behind the logo….. and Micki decided to share her amazing work with all of us!!!

This blanket is designed as a picnic blanket or sofa blanket as it is 3ft wide and almost 7 ft in length to give plenty of room to sit upon or cuddle under. It is worked in Tunisian Crochet and does require a hook with cable.

This will be presented as a 10 part CAL
