Abstract Queen CAL: Interlocking Part 12

November 17, 2020: Part 12 – Rows 265-288

Crocheted by Emily Harmon using the interlocking crochet technique

It’s been a good week here! I published this fun scarf: Yarn Heartbeat Scarf. You can get it on Etsy or Ravelry (there are still be some free downloads left on Ravelry, use code “FollowMe” – good for the first 1500 uses, there’s been 1350 as of posting this).

I also drew up a new pattern: Bonnet Girl Blanket. You can get her for 30% off (Ravelry)(Etsy) – expires Nov 17, 2020, 11:9 pm CST. Does she look more like Hobby Holly or Sunbonnet Sue to you?

Plus, I have just updated the squares that started it all! Abstract Boxes, Cones, Levels, Lines, and Stripe. Someday, all of my patterns will include interlocking AND mosaic instructions. But, remember, until they are updated, you can still use the charts for both techniques. Check out my YouTube video if you want to learn how to read the charts:

One more thing! BLACK FRIDAY SALE begins Friday (Nov 20-22, 2020): get 25% off everything in my Etsy store and on Ravelry!

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.

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 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
