This is an expanded version of my Hobby Stencil 40: that square has a chart size of 81 x 81 and begins with 40 windows when doing the interlocking technique. This blanket will be better for those wishing to use the overlay mosaic technique because there are no tails getting in the way of joining the squares.

Buy this blanket and get the square free! Just add to cart to see the magic discount applied!

You will receive one file containing:

  • written line-by-line instructions using the interlocking crochet technique (Locked Filet Mesh)
  • a one-page chart (161 x 161)
  • a multi-page chart with the X’s marked for mosaic crochet
  • written line-by-line instructions using the overlay mosaic technique (including instructions for an envelope border)

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.

Overlay mosaic crochet is single 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.
