The first designs I created were a series of abstract-20 squares. They were interlocking charts that started with 20 windows and came out to be about 10″ square so I named them in a very descriptive manner – such as: Abstract Levels 20, Abstract Boxes 20, etc. I’ve since learned that my charts can also be used for mosaic crochet (and other crafts, I’m sure) but I haven’t finished writing out the instructions for each pattern in the mosaic technique so that is just on my growing to-do list.

This CAL (Crochet-A-Long) is going to be available in the interlocking (LFM = Locked Filet Mesh) and mosaic technique. And it is a BIG project! Using worsted weight yarn will give you a queen size spread with drape. A DK yarn should give you a throw sized blanket.

You can follow along here (each part of the CAL will be posted to the blog and remain free forever), or you can purchase the PDF on Ravelry or Etsy in a nice ad-free printable PDF.

I have two separate landing pages for each method of crochet which lists each release date.

A BIG BIG THANK YOU to my friend and helper, Neetsey! She helps me stay sane and she worked on condensing the pattern with all those pesky brackets so that the pattern is a bit more manageable (but, honestly, it’s still quite a beast!).

I will be having a weekly draw – join my facebook group for more details!

I really hope you all enjoy this project. It is not a typical pattern – there are repeats but they are not easy to memorize. The project is large and the pattern has a lot of brackets. If you need help at any point please contact me or post to the facebook group where lots of people will be willing to help!
