This pattern is reversible: your fish will be swimming downstream on one side, and upstream on the other side! A small square of mine uses the same motif - find it here.

You will receive 3 files:

  • a written pattern and chart for the interlocking technique starting at the short side of the scarf, and
  • a written pattern and chart for the interlocking technique starting at the long end of the scarf, and
  • a written pattern and chart for the mosaic technique.

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.
