Abstract Queen CAL: Mosaic Part 5

September 29, 2020: Part 5 – Rows 97-120

Work in progress by Nina Mayer

I am releasing this week’s part a day early because tomorrow it’s moving day for us and I don’t want another thing on my to-do list.

This week I have been focused on finding us an apartment (you may have heard we were buying a new house but that didn’t happen because my husband lost his job due to “restructuring”) and selling things we’re not taking with us and packing the things we are keeping.

But, at the beginning of the week I did get some computer time in, and I finished updating all my shawl patterns to include mosaic instructions along with their original interlocking/ Locked Filet Mesh/ LFM.

You can find the list of all my patterns here.

I am excited to publish my first non-LFM, non-mosaic pattern on October 1: “Vickie Likes Red”. The picture below is the test from Robin. She used a 5 mm hook and about 1.75 skeins of Caron Jumbo Yarn (that’s 12 oz of worsted weight/4 yarn per skein). Her colorway (Blue Plum) looks beautiful on her gorgeous daughter.

You can buy the pre-release of “Vickie Likes Red” for a discount! Add it to your cart to see the sale.

I have to take a pretty picture of my newest “-40 square” and then I can publish that pattern too! Any guesses to what image is on it?


Go back to the main Abstract Queen landing page if you want to find the interlocking version or the list of dates of each release. Scroll down to find the mosaic pattern.

Subscribe to receive weekly updates by email!

The free parts on the blog do not include the chart, but you can purchase the pattern on Ravelry or Etsy, where you will receive the chart and instructions for both techniques. I really appreciate the support!

Mosaic Key

MC = Main Color: black in chart
CC = Contrasting Color: white in chart
Sp = space
Sk = skip a stitch
CH = chain
SC = single crochet
sc = SC into Back Loop only
DC = double crochet
dc = DC into Front Loop of stitch, 2 rows below
JS = Joining Stitch: insert hook under both loops, pull up a loop, slip stitch, SC in same space
ES = End Stitch: SC under both loops, CH 1, cut yarn and pull through tightly

Mosaic Technique

  • Remember to skip the same number of stitch(es) behind your dc(s) before doing your next sc
  • The front of your work is always facing you (this is the right side, the side showing the design)
  • You are always working from the right to the left
  • You tie on a new yarn at the beginning of each row and cut it at the end
    • Tails don’t need to be longer than an inch and a half
  • Yarn colors can be anything you like
    • They need to contrast well (try a black and white photo to see if they are too similar)
    • They need to be the same weight (size/thickness)
    • My charts use black as the Main Color and white as the Coordinating Color
  • I prefer using a chainless SC to create my foundation row because then I have tails on both sides of my work just like all the other rows will have
  • Even-numbered rows use MC; odd-numbered rows use CC
