Each month in 2022 I published a new cat pattern! You can grab the eBook, 2022: A Year of Cats or just pick your favorite squares. This square is the “e” in the Love Mini-series and thus comes with right- and left-handed instructions. The “Love” mini-series: 2022 March Cat, 2022 June Cat, 2022 September Cat, and 2022 December Cat.

You will receive one file for interlocking crochet:

  • the full written line-by-line pattern for right- and left-handed crocheters
  • a one-page chart (81 x 81)

And one file for overlay mosaic crochet:

  • the full written line-by-line pattern for right- and left-handed crocheters
  • instructions for an optional envelope border)
  • an X-marked chart (77 x 77)

The interlocking mesh dots and border lines have been removed for the overlay mosaic version of the pattern.

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.
