It is starting to get chilly outside! My daughter LOVES making gingerbread and we try to make it a few times a year. I hope this brings you good memories too!

You will receive one file containing the written line-by-line instructions for interlocking crochet, a single page chart (181 x 181), and the written line-by-line instructions for 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.

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 (overlay). 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.
