This pattern was originally produced in parts in the Monster Mischief CAL. However, this listing is for an amalgamation of all parts into one document. It is full price and carries no discounts.

The CAL finishes on 25th August 2022 and is still running. If you would like to take part and get a 25% discount, you can get this by purchasing on Ravelry instead. The patterns will be released over a six-week period.

You can also join the Craft Pixie Crochet Club on Facebook for an additional 25% off the Ravelry price.



The blanket is constructed using basic overlay mosaic crochet techniques and so is ideal for the adventurous beginner. If you have never used this technique before, I have also included a TECHNICAL ANNEX, which has instructions on stitch formation, hints and tips. It’s a great way to give this method a go.

Monster Mischief was inspired by my favourite video game in the 80s - Space Invaders. For the CAL, I wanted to create some monsters with personality and cuteness and so the Monster Mischief Mob developed! I hope you enjoy the patterns as much as I have enjoyed creating them. They are perfect for that little person in your life.



The blanket measured around 43” x 59” including border using Stylecraft Special Aran and a 5.00 mm hook.

The floor cushion measures around 17” x 17” using Stylecraft Special DK and a 3.50 mm hook. It is shown on an 18” cushion pad.



This blanket is made using basic overlay mosaic crochet techniques with all explained in the technical document. This document also includes instructions on creating the eyes. This is great for someone wishing to take the plunge into overlay mosaic crochet and there will be lots of help and support in the Facebook groups.



The sample blanket was made using Stylecraft Special Aran and a 5.00 mm hook. For the 5x5 monster blanket, I used:

Black (#1002) - 12 skeins
Cream (#1005) - 1 skein
Meadow (#1065) - 5 skeins
The sample floor cushion was made using Stylecraft Special DK and a 3.50 mm hook. I used:

Magenta (#1084) - 2 skeins
Lobelia (#1825) - 2 skeins
Cream (#1005) - around 10 metres

Always do a sample and adapt yarn amounts accordingly. The above aims to provide you with adequate yarn to complete the project in the yarn and hook specified.

This template was beyond my expectations. I am not a crafty person but this was so easy! I wanted a cute way to celebrate my daughters surprise 21st birthday trip to NYC. Eight pieces make a whole pie and in each piece I put a hints of her trip - a map of Manhattan, a gift certificate to Forever 21, Broadway brochure, Tickets to the Vessel, etc. I loved how great this turned out. Thanks TheCraftPixie!!
