A new year deserves a big, deep breath of new hope for the future. Leaves and greenery will come in the spring! Even though it’s currently a very white winter here in Saskatchewan, Canada we can see hope on the horizon. This design reminds us that spring IS coming!

I have written this pattern up to be made from the center-out or bottom-up using the interlocking crochet or overlay mosaic crochet technique.

Each technique has it’s own file with the full written pattern and appropriate charts (mosaic charts have x’s) thus you will receive 4 files here.


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. YouTube tutorials

Mosaic crochet uses 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. YouTube tutorial.

Both techniques can be done from the center-out. Tutorials:
Interlocking crochet from the center-out
Overlay mosaic crochet from the center-out


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