The Gaudi Sidewalk Blanket

Sharing is caring!

Gaudi Sidewalk Blanket Crochet Pattern by Briana K Designs

Gaudi’s Sidewalk in Barcelona is world-renowned, and this The Gaudi Sidewalk Blanket brings the artwork to life in your own home. 

Barcelona to you.

I could not stop looking at my feet. My husband was trying to get my attention, and a man walked by and spit on the ground. Not being able to resist, I gave that man a dirty look. How could he not see the beautiful art at his feet?

I was enamored as I studied the way each hexagon and line came together. Alone the hexagon seemed cryptic, but together it was magnificent.  I wanted to take this piece of Barcelona home.

Antoni Gaudi

Antoni Gaudi (1852-1926) was a Spanish architect. He is known for his Catalan Modernism and one of a kind style. However, most of his works reside in Barcelona, Spain.

Much of his inspiration derives from nature, which he uniquely ties to modernism. His most famous works is the Sagrada Familia Cathedral.

Gaudi’s design which influenced me the most was his stone tiled sidewalk. Right away the hexagon shapes spoke to me. It’s a mathematical shape that is often found in nature and uniquely fits together. In this design every rotation forms a new image at the vertices representing the sun, earth, and sea.

Art Take Time

Wanting to crochet an homage to Gaudi’s Sidewalk and making it a reality were two different things. It surprised me how long it took to get the exact gauge and stitch sizing for the correct dimensions. And then the time it took to create the piece. 

Did it get boring? Not at all.


I worked on this project one piece at a time at just under five months. It wasn’t the only WIP on my couch, so I would pick it up when I wanted and do a hexagon here and there. One of my favorite things about working in pieces is the small goals that don’t feel overwhelming.

I carried it on the back and did not crochet over it. Either way will work. For bobbins and more info head on over to this post: https://brianakdesigns.com/ways-to-colorwork-in-crochet/
