MusicCal 6: Headphones Section

Honestly, this was the most boring section to crochet. Too many repeats for my liking. But perhaps that will make it quick for some of you! We are nearing the end of my MusicCAL 2021 (Crochet-A-Long) and I sure do enjoy seeing your progress in my Facebook group!

This post includes the interlocking pattern and the overlay mosaic pattern (click to skip ahead to the patterns). If you’re new to these techniques, check out my tutorials on YouTube!

Join in at any time! Share your progress in my Ravelry group, or in my Facebook group, or tag me on Instagram @ashleeslint and use hashtag #MusicCAL21

The free pattern begins here and a new section will be released each week. If you’d prefer, you can grab the FULL pattern (with a chart!) on Ravelry or Etsy. Get 20% off for the duration of this CAL (no code required, add to cart to see the discount, expires June 24, 2021). Thank you for supporting your designer! <3 If you enjoy this free version of the pattern you could share the link and invite your friends to visit me here!

Interlocking Crochet

Key (US terminology)

AC = accent color (white on chart)

MC = main color (black on chart)

RS = right side: the side of your work that will show the finished design

WS = wrong side: the back of your project

Back = the side not facing you

Front = the side currently facing you

ch = chain

sk = skip a stitch

sc = single crochet: insert hook, yarn over, pull up loop, yarn over, pull through both loops

dc = double crochet: yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull up loop, *yarn over, pull through two loops* twice

tr = treble crochet: yarn over twice, insert hook, yarn over, pull up loop, *yarn over, pull through two loops* three times

B = double crochet (dc) behind, and chain 1

F = double crochet (dc) in front, and chain 1

EB = end stitch in back: using AC, dc into the last AC window, working behind MC

EF = end stitch in front: using AC, dc into the last AC window, working in front of MC

ES = end stitch: dc into the last window space

ACB = put AC yarn to the side facing away from you

ACF = bring the AC yarn to the side facing you

Hints

Remember, each color is worked into itself only and there is a chain space between each DC.

Don’t confuse RS / WS with Front / Back.

Part 6 in interlocking crochet complete, another divider section is included in the written pattern here but not shown in the image

See you next week for the next section of the pattern!

~*~*~*~*~ Or, begin here if you’re using the overlay mosaic technique! ~*~*~*~*~

If you are changing colors for each section you actually need to change colors 2 rows before the sectiom starts. The sections are divided to make each part look finished, not in anticipation of changing colors. I will anticipate better in my next CAL 😉

Mosaic Crochet

Key (US terminology)

MC = Main Color: black in chart

CC = Contrasting Color: white in chart

ch = chain

SC = single crochet: insert hook, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through both loops on hook

sc = SC into Back Loop only

DC = double crochet: yarn over, insert hook, pull up a loop, *yarn over, pull through two loops* twice

dc = dropped double crochet: skip next single crochet, and instead double crochet into Front Loop of stitch in the row below

JS = Joining Stitch: create slip knot, insert hook under both loops, complete a normal single crochet

ES = End Stitch: single crochet under both loops, chain 1, cut yarn and pull through tightly

Remember to skip the same number of stitch(es) behind your dc(s) before doing your next sc

Technique

  • 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 (opposite for left-handed crocheters)
  • 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 (unless you want to use them as fringe, like on scarf)
  • 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)
  • 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
