“Comfort Cat” will keep you feeling warm and safe. This snuggly blanket is one of the largest patterns I have. This large blanket can be made smaller by using a thinner yarn and an appropriately sized hook like the sample crocheted by Marjolijn. She used fingering weight yarn and a 2 mm hook. She used Hobbii 8/4 cotton; it took 3100 meters of the black yarn and 4540 meters of the beige yarn. If you use worsted weight your blanket will be a full bedspread.

Interlocking crochet

  • line-by-line written pattern
  • a one-page chart (good for viewing on a screen)
  • a multi-page chart (better for printing)

Overlay Mosaic Crochet

  • line-by-line written pattern
  • instructions for optional envelope border
  • instructions on reading a chart
  • a one-page chart marked with X’s (good for viewing on a screen)
  • a multi-page chart marked with X’s (better for printing)

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.
