I do not have a green thumb, but I am pretty handy with some yarn and a hook! There are three options to choose from with this design: interlocking crochet, the original overlay mosaic crochet, and an adjusted overlay mosaic crochet.

Read more about these colorwork techniques at https://ashleeslint.com/tutorials/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.

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: https://ashleeslint.com/link-in-bio.
