Happy birthday! This little cupcake is a great size for a toddler blanket.

You will receive two files: one interlocking and one mosaic pattern. Each pattern includes written line-by-line instructions, a single page chart (151 x 201), and a chart spread out over multiple pages.

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.
