Water is life. A jump into the ocean can revive your soul, wake your senses, or soothe your aches.

You will receive one file containing:

  • written line-by-line instructions for the interlocking crochet technique
  • a one-page chart (201 x 241)

And another file containing:

  • written line-by-line instructions for the overlay mosaic technique (including instructions for an envelope border)
  • a multi-page chart marked with X’s

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.
