Over the years I have seen a few different blankets that were created by connecting curved shapes together in a tesselating design. They are known by a few different names, magic lantern crochet patterns, granny lanterns, ornament crochet patterns, ogee crochet patterns, Moroccan Tiles patterns and more recently Mystical Lanterns Crochet Pattern.
All of these patterns follow the same basic design principal. Each finished project is created by joining individual motifs (with an s-shaped curve/double curve) together in a repeated, tesselating design. The finished projects are eyecatching! They are also much easier to make than you would expect! Think of a granny square blanket, with a small twist.
Right now, the Mystical Lanterns Blanket Pattern is super popular. It was designed by Jane Crowfoot and it is available for purchase as a downloadable PDF.
Mystical Lanterns Blanket
Jane’s design began with a standard granny hexagon pattern that she modified into a sleek curved lantern shape. Her blanket is stunning and you can get the Mystical Lanterns Blanket pattern here.
If purchasing a pattern is not an option for you, here are some other Magic Lantern blanket crochet patterns for you to consider.
