GoldieLux was the first pattern where I adjusted the mosaic crochet option to be solid and not show the interlocking mesh dots in an effort to make the large square feel more luxurious.

Interlocking & Mosaic

This large square can be made using the interlocking crochet technique or the overlay mosaic crochet technique.

The mosaic chart has been adjusted so the interlocking mesh dots don’t show.


GoldieLux is a large square. It begins with 40 windows when you use the interlocking crochet method. The chart is 81 x 81 for both techniques and when you meet gauge your finished square will be about 20″ / 51cm. 

What’s in a name?

This one was named after my imagined piece and not the actual sample I crocheted.

I imagined a deep, rich gold tone with a deep, rich purple or maybe emerald green (something jewel-toned at least). And I pictured it in either blanket- or pillow-form lying on a luxurious plush couch.

Then, I dug in my stash and found white and green. Close enough?

Two techniques

Just like my other patterns, this pattern is written up for two techniques: interlocking crochet and overlay mosaic crochet. But, unlike my other patterns this square comes with two charts instead of one shared chart between the two techniques.

Solid Mosaic

To help create the luxurious feel, when you look at the mosaic chart you will see I have filled in the gaps created by the interlocking mesh.

Large Square

The chart is 81 x 81 (and now includes X’s marked for mosaic as well as a simple chart for interlocking), which means this is a 40-window square when done using the interlocking crochet technique. You can find other squares of this size here and join them together for a custom blanket!

Optional Locked Mosaic Crochet Stitches

Because this mosaic pattern doesn’t have the alternating stitches like my other patterns it does create small flaps on the wrong side.

The flaps are only a few stitches wide so you may not be bothered, but if you dislike them you can lock the stitches down.

This extra step is optional but I like how the back stays smooth.

If you are creating a pillow this step is entirely unnecessary because the flaps won’t be seen at all.

Locked DC: Optional Mosaic Crochet Tutorial

This technique is optional. It only applies to the overlay mosaic crochet option (not the interlocking crochet option).

It can affect the drape in your finished project and may use more yarn – so it may not be a good option all the time.

Two scarves showing the wrong side when you do normal mosaic crochet versus the locked in stitches.

 Step One

Begin like a normal dropped double crochet.

Yarn over, insert hook into front loop two rows below (this is where the photo shows), pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through two loops… but don’t complete the double crochet just yet!

 Step Two

Now insert your hook into back loop of skipped stitch (this is what the photo shows), yarn over and pull through all three loops on your hook.
