Make a Wish

This little fairy dances among the stars so you can make a wish every night! This pattern holds a special place for me as it was the first blanket design I published!

Interlocking & Mosaic

In April 2020 I published this as an interlocking crochet pattern. I added the overlay mosaic crochet option in September of 2020.

Both options include the fully written pattern and charts.


This blanket pattern has a chart of 189 x 213 and if you meet gauge it finishes to 47″ x 53″.

Every now and then I like to celebrate certain milestones.

Today I am starting with a quick sale on the first blanket pattern I published! I published my first little square on April 1, 2020 and this blanket was published to Ravelry on April 12, 2020.

When I started, I created a few small squares and even a purse strap! The squares are meant to be joined together for a blanket (or used as coasters or pillow covers or even wall hangings) but they aren’t quite the same category as an actual blanket design.

This blanket really does show my style even though I hadn’t realized I had a style yet. It has some magic, some sparkles, and the size is manageable (in my opinion those king sized blankets are a monumental feat!).

Monique’s “Make A Wish” Blanket

I’m so thankful for Monique’s willingness to test for such a new designer (me)!

Her sample uses black as the main color and is done using the interlocking technique (because that’s the only technique I had available when I started!).

This beautiful black and white sample of Make a Wish was crocheted by Monique. I was new to using testers as well and I am so thankful for everyone who had faith in me right from the beginning!


“Make a Wish” was originally published in April of 2020.

In June 2020, I updated the pattern to unclude left-handed instructions because those words at the bottom need to be facing the proper way. I had also created a mirror-image chart until someone pointed out that left-handed crocheters don’t need a chart that starts at the bottom right corner… they can use the same chart I already had and they just start at the bottom left.

I definitely laughed at myself because as soon as it was explained I thought to myself, “duh!”

In September 2020 I updated this pattern to include overlay mosaic instructions. It was a big undertaking to update all my patterns and it took me longer than I expected.

In July 2021 I finally managed to get a chart marked with X’s for the mosaic crochet dropped double crochets.

Thank you for all your patience! Today I have updated the pattern to have one file for each technique. The pattern hasn’t changed. I only merged the files to be more concise.


YouTube Tutorial

I have a YouTube tutorial for reading the interlocking crochet chart while using the overlay mosaic crochet technique. I created this tutorial as a temporary measure while I was in the process of updating my patterns to include the mosaic patterns.


Today, January 13, 2022, is the first time I’ve created a webpage about this design. When I first published it I didn’t have a website!

I’ve put a little promotion on this design to celebrate all these updates!
