I have drawn a classic rocking horse for this adorable blanket!

You will receive three files:

  • Interlocking crochet: written pattern, a one-page chart and a multi-page chart
  • Overlay mosaic crochet (using original chart): written pattern, a one-page chart and a multi-page chart marked with X’s
  • Overlay mosaic crochet (using adjusted, solid chart): written pattern, a one-page chart and a multi-page chart marked with X’s

There are two options using mosaic crochet. One uses the interlocking chart (with the mesh dots all over it) and the other has been adjusted to removed the unnecessary dots and extra border lines.

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.
