This is the final pattern in my Baby Ocean & Others eBook and it is very special to me because I used my 6-year-old daughter’s artwork as the inspiration!

She drew Feline the Deer on her chalkboard for me to use, and I did create a pattern afterwards, but this Fish pattern is based on artwork she painted with her Nana B (see the pictures).

This ocean-themed blanket is the perfect size for a baby blanket! Or, you can join it to other squares to create an adult-sized blanket!

You will receive one file containing:

  • the interlocking line-by-line instructions
  • an unmarked one-page chart (121 x 121)

And another file containing;

  • the overlay mosaic line-by-line instructions (including instructions for an envelope border)
  • a multi-page chart (121 x 121) marked with X’s for mosaic crochet

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.

Mosaic crochet uses single crochet 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.
