Summer Direction CAL: Dark Arrows

So far we have done the foundation rows and then Chevron A twice. If you are using the interlocking / Locked Filet Mesh / LFM crochet technique you had to follow two different sets of instructions to get the Chevron A to show up on the right side of your work. This “Dark Arrows” section doesn’t get repeated (but there will be some very similar arrows coming later).

Since this Crochet-A-Long (as well as all my other patterns) is written up for two techniques, you may find it easier to navigate to the section you want from the main landing page. This post is for the “Dark Arrows” section; first the overlay mosaic line-by-line instructions and then the interlocking version. The YouTube walk-thru’s are linked here as well.

I call these “dark” arrows because they show more of the Main Color/MC (which is usually the darker color). Later we will also do “light” arrows which show more of the Contrasting Color/CC or Accent Color/AC. If you’ve used a lighter color for your MC it will be ok. Your project will still turn out amazing, I’m sure!

If you’d rather not wait for all the free releases (or you’re desperate for the charts), you can grab a FULL copy of the pattern and charts on Etsy or Ravelry. Get 50% off your purchase of “Summer Direction CAL” on Etsy and Ravelry until September 30, 2021 by using code “SUMMER2021”!


Dark Arrows: Overlay Mosaic Technique

After the foundation rows we did “Chevron A” two times. Now we will do this “Dark Arrows” section once.

Remember, even-numbered rows use Main Color (MC); odd-numbered rows use Contrasting Color (CC). You can read the pattern KEY if you need a refresher.

Here’s the YouTube walk-thru, or scroll down for the written instructions.

Interlocking Crochet/LFM: Dark Arrows

When you created two Chevron A’s you had to use two different patterns because one began with the Right Side (RS) and the other began with the Wrong Side (WS). This section begins with the WS but there is no RS version. If you follow my pattern as written there won’t be a problem but if you’re mixing and matching you will want to take note of that detail.

Go back to the landing page for a review of important information and the KEY.

Here’s the walk-thru for the first section of our Summer Direction CAL, or scroll down for the written portion.
