Late one night, instead of sleeping, I was browsing Facebook… and I came across a post where someone shared a photo of a pretty design she saw on the wrapper for her feminine hygiene products. Everyone agreed this pattern could be beautiful in crochet form!

So, here is my version. You can create one tile at a time and sew them together or do a bunch of repeats until your piece is as big as you want it!

Yarn weight and hook size can easily be adjusted, just keep in mind your finished project will use a different amount of yarn and be a different finished size. If you share your works on Instagram, tag me: @AshleesLint

You will receive a chart (21 x 21) and written line-by-line instructions for interlocking AND mosaic crochet.

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.


I have YouTube tutorials available for both crochet methods! Follow this link to get to my YouTube channel and find my other social links.

  • Accent Color (AC) – 20 yards
  • Crochet hook: 4.5 mm (US7)
  • Stitch marker

For Mosaic Crochet, You Will Need

I am in the process of writing out mosaic instructions for all my patterns; if you want one of my other patterns in mosaic form please send me a note and I will work on that piece first!
