Abstract Queen CAL: Mosaic Part 12

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

Nina's work in progress - she has completed up to Section 12.
Up to section 12 by Nina Mayer

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” – it’s 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!

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 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!

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!

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
