Hypnotic Tiles Afghan

Introducing the Crochet Hypnotic Tiles Afghan by me, Mikey of The Crochet Crowd. This is using Caron Cakes Yarn featuring the Red Velvet Colour.

In my design today, there are layers within each of the squares that are in the afghan. The afghan is made up of 20 squares that are joined as you go and then with a final border around the edge.

The pattern isn’t difficult but has a texture that includes layers of texture and with the colour transitions of this yarn, the afghan looks amazing.

    can this Hypnotic Tiles square go on and on and on? i want to adapt the pattern for a baby blanket. i really dont like fiddling with joining and sewing in ends. i havent looked anywhere to see if it has been done. i will be using Bernat Softee Baby Stripes…Sand Pebbles Stripe so it should be nice and light and have the colour changes to hopefully add depth to the layering.

    Do you think this would look good as a virus type blanket? In a side note, I couldn’t be making the things I do without your wonderful videos.

    Is there a PDF of this pattern anywhere?

    Hi Mikey…I just started this gorgeous afghan and completed my first square. My guage measures out correctly however, my entire square is all the same color. Does it matter if u pull the yarn from the inside or the outside? I bought the red velvet colorway.

    First I want to thank you for the pattern/ s and videos. On first square only do I finish off then attach the next square? Square 2 and on, do I then work to 12, do not fasten off and join? Thank you for your patience.

    I got my first square done and have tried and tried to get it straightened out but it is all wonky. I hate blocking stuff and 99% of the time don’t have to because I can just stretch it out but I am having a terrible problem with this one. Plus, I think blocking would take forever since it is join-as-you-go. Is there a special tip or hint you can give me to keep the square more square? Thanks in advance! I love the look of this blanket and this yarn is awesome!

  8. Lisa White

    Once a skein is almost finished, does it matter if you use it to start the next square, then just attach a new skein that starts with a different color? Or should you try to match the new color to the old skein?

    • Just start the next ball as is. No doctoring required. This will help make the squares look differently from each other.

    Hi! Just started my border for the hypnotic tiles blanket and had just one question. The second row in the video is 2sc ch2 2sc in each corner but in the written part I believe it says 1sc ch2 1sc. Does it matter or does one work better? Thanks!

  10. Kathy Michaelidis

    Hi! Just started the border for my hypnotic tiles blanket and I had just one question. On the sc row is it 2sc chain2 2sc? Becausebin video it is but the written says 1sc chain2 1sc. Thanks!

    Challenge accepted, of course your video made it look easy and once I get going I will be able to remember the flow. I did try to get all the same dye lot of yarn today but was not successful. Does it really matter for the Caron cakes? The only way it might have worked was 2 balls each of 3 dye lots.?Michaels failed me today in getting all the same dye lot.


    If I use solid yarn do I need to do the join as you go or would I stitch them together after I habe the 20 squares made?

    I absolutely am having so much fun making this afghan! I was lucky to find six skeins of Fairy Cake and I’m loving the squares in this color. Thanks so much for another beautiful pattern!

    This is beautiful, Mikey! I LOVE these colours and I’d love to do this. Unfortunately I haven’t found Caron Cakes in the UK. But I’ll try taking a cue from the colours here and see what I can do – after Christmas! Have a list of stuff to accomplish before my itchy fingers can start on this! 😉 Thank you for posting the tutorial – I just can’t get over the generousity of your site!

  15. Pam

    Love the tutorial and love the pattern. Your creativity is astounding. I can’t wait to start this one as a Christmas gift! Thanks again for your hard work and helping the crochet world become better at our craft!!!

    Bang on Mikey! I just found another reason to try the C Cakes yarn. Your video was well done. I haven’t been a fan until I saw a blanket on FB and now this. Yippee! Road trip to Michael’s!!!

  17. Miriam

    I really love this! Do you think adding more squares (as long as I kept the 5×4 rows) to make it fit a queen size bed would work? Or would that throw it out of balance?

    • Lori S.

      It would work wonderfully! Be sure to place your squares so you balance the color throughout the blanket. Post a pic of it on FaceBook if you are on the CC site. Have fun!

    hi mikey, do you have a diagram for thjs amazing pattern?

  19. Lynette

    This is beautiful and is added to my ever growing list of ‘must do’.

  20. Tammy

    You’re Bang on, I got a little confused with the joining part though, I will just rewind and watch it over (I watch a video completely before I work a project anyway) or maybe I will just keep going around until it’s as big as I want…lol.

  21. Christine Bye

    As always love your tutorials. Going to do this in Scarfie yarn instead.
