Have an early-morning cuppa and let your blanket do the talking!

You will receive line-by-line instructions for interlocking crochet AND overlay mosaic crochet, as well as an unmarked single-page chart.

You will also receive the same bundle for left-handed crocheters (no need to read the pattern backwards to get legible words!)

A separate file has an unmarked, multi-page chart.

Now includes a bonus chart with the X’s marked 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 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.
