My husband’s musical family thinks our daughter, Melody, was named for the obvious. But my inspiration was really the firecracker, River Song! See my other patterns for more with Doctor Who themes.

Also, for what it’s worth, I did contact the BBC and was told I can share my patterns as long as it’s not commercial, so here they are for free! You can also them all on my blog!

You will receive line-by-line instructions for interlocking crochet AND mosaic crochet, as well as a chart.

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.
