When we released our Dollhouse Blanket C2C CAL, we had several requests for a little boy version. We’ve been hard at work designing a 12-week City Play Mat Crochet-along. There will be appliques for the buildings – a Fire Department, Police Department, Hospital, Bakery, & City Hall to name a few. Also, no play mat would be complete without cute little amigurumi vehicles for play!

This project will run a little different than our previous projects. In the past, we released individual panels. At the end, all the panels were sewn together to make a beautiful masterpiece. If we released this project in panels, the roads would have ridges in the middle of them. We didn’t care for that particular look with this CAL. We will instead be working one big piece for a smooth finish.

We divided the project into pixels (individual C2C squares). Each week we will release a certain number of pixels/rows. In the beginning, the rows are short so there will be several rows released. As we progress to the longer rows, there will be fewer released to compensate for the number of pixels in each row. The goal was to break it up and make it attainable!

Finished Size: 55″ x 95″


{All yarn is Hobby Lobby “I Love This Yarn”. The approximate yardage listed is using a 5.0mm hook and the mini C2c method (ch2 & 3HDC per pixel). If you crochet loose, use a different size crochet hook and/or a different method of squares, your yardage will be different.}

Skill Level: Beginner
