I created this marijuana leaf blanket as a custom design by request (sorry, no longer doing customs). I didn’t publish it publicly for a long time because it doesn’t really fit my ‘brand’ (if that’s even a thing).

I’m making it available now because it seems silly to leave it hiding on my desktop. I drew this pattern, and those that want it can have it.

As always, you’ll get two options for creating this piece. You can use interlocking crochet or overlay mosaic crochet. Both options come with the full written pattern and charts (the mosaic charts have x’s).

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.
