My grandma had a blanket full of girls in dresses. I didn’t care much for their hats but I always liked their dresses. I learned later that was a classic quilting block, and she was named after her hat / bonnet!

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.

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 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.
