Everyone has a birthday once a year, so whip up a few of these small throw blankets and always have gifts on hand!

You will receive a chart (151 x 201) and written line-by-line instructions for interlocking AND mosaic crochet.

This pattern also includes the left-handed instructions so you don’t have to do things backwards to get a legible message.

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 is 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.

For Interlocking Crochet, You Will Need

  • Worsted Weight Yarn (2230 yards)
  • Main Color (MC) – 1100 yards plus 30 yards for optional SC border
  • Accent Color (AC) – 1100 yards
  • Crochet hook: 4.5 mm (US7)
  • Stitch marker
  • Gauge: 16 stitches x 8 rows in one color = 4” square

You can choose whichever colors you like! Usually MC is darker than AC and the design will show up better if the colors are not too similar to each other.
