January Dog is the first of 12 large dog squares to be published in 2024. These little dachshunds were inspired by my slippers! Each month’s design can be made using interlocking crochet or overlay mosaic crochet. This is my 4th year creating a monthly square; see more at https://ashleeslint.com/year-of/2024-a-year-of-dogs/.

If you’re not ready to commit to the full eBook of all 12 dog squares, why not just try January Dog first? If you later decide you DO want the eBook, the cost of January Dog will be deducted from your purchase of the eBook!

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. YouTube Tutorials

Mosaic crochet uses single crochet and double crochet stitches. The double crochet stitches cover some of the other color’s single crochet stitches to create the design. YouTube Tutorials
