In the Facebook group, Mosaic Crochet World, designers were challenged to create something lucky for 2021. I hope this lucky key opens fabulous doors for you this year!

You will receive one file containing:

  • the interlocking pattern,
  • a one-page chart,
  • the mosaic pattern (including instructions for an envelope border).

The Locked Filet Mesh (LFM) interlocking crochet method uses only chain spaces and double crochets to create a mesh; two colors are worked alternately which creates the pattern.

Overlay mosaic crochet is single and double crochet stitches. The double crochet stitches cover some of the other color’s single crochet stitches to create the design. My patterns instruct you to cut your yarn at the end of each row. The back is striped but often gives a faint impression of the pattern on the front (sort of like illusion knitting). See an example here.


I have YouTube tutorials available for both crochet methods! Follow this link to get to my YouTube channel and find my other social links.
