Abstract Queen CAL: Interlocking Part 7

October 13, 2020: Part 7 – Rows 145-168

Crocheted by Emily Harmon using the interlocking crochet technique

How can it be the middle of October already!? And how is the Firetruck the last pattern I published? I am slacking on new patterns! It has been crazy here at home, temporary home. It feels very temporary and it is weird. The kids are adjusting but it is hard on them. I am glad I had the foresight to set up a lot of this CAL beforehand. Maybe tonight, after this release and the weekly email, I can get back to one of my half-finished patterns.

I have also been doing more crocheting lately as I try to get some winter hats and scarves made up for my kiddos. I should just follow a pattern but instead I made up some random stuff. The colorful striped hat was supposed to be for my toddler but it is too big for my husband lol. I will write up the pattern for the other two hats though. Keep your eyes peeled!

You will see this same introduction on each part of the CAL. Scroll down to find the pattern instructions you’re looking for.

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

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 in a nice printable PDF. I really appreciate the support!

Join my Ravelry group or Facebook group share your progress, no matter when you start! And create a project page on Ravelry linked to the Abstract Queen pattern to be entered to win one of the weekly prizes!

Key for Interlocking Crochet

RS = right side: the side of your work that will show the finished design
WS = wrong side: the back of your project
Front = the side currently facing you
Back = the side not facing you
Ch = chain
Sp = space
Sk = skip a stitch
SC = single crochet
DC = double crochet
F = DC in front, then CH 1
B = DC behind, then CH 1
ES = DC into the last window space
EF = end stitch in front: using AC, DC into the last AC window, working in front of MC
EB = end stitch in back: using AC, DC into the last AC window, working behind MC
ACF = bring the AC yarn to the side facing you
ACB = put AC yarn to the side facing away from you

Notes

  • If you chain tighter than me you may need to Ch 4 where I Ch 3
  • Don’t confuse RS / WS with Front / Back
  • Remember, each color is worked into itself only and there is a chain space between each DC
