This design was extracted from my Prairie Meadow Fox blanket. It is NOT the same size as my other large squares (which are 81 x 81 or 79 x 79) because I was pulling motifs from the fox blanket and the chart just ended up with this random size.

You will receive one file containing:

  • the interlocking written line-by-line pattern
  • a one-page chart (79 x 81)
  • this is 39 windows wide by 40 windows tall

And another file with:

  • the mosaic written line-by-line pattern (including instructions for an envelope border)
  • an X-marked chart (75 x 77)
  • you can create a tube instead of joining the panels. See my tutorial on YouTube.

The interlocking mesh dots and border lines have been removed for the overlay mosaic version of the pattern.

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 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.
