Double Wedding Rings

Interlocking & Mosaic

This design includes a full pattern for both techniques.

The mosaic version is solid. 

Bottom-Up or Center-Out

Each technique comes with a bottom-up option and a center-out option.

Therefore, there are 4 files included in this design.

Originally this was designed as a bottom-up blanket only. The center-out options were added later!


This design is meant to be repeated to get the size you want. 

The base square is my typical 40-window large square.

You don’t cut the yarn and join squares, you follow the repeats in the written pattern or charts to get the size you want.

Written & Charts

Every design comes with the full written pattern and charts!

The mosaic charts are solid (no interlocking mesh dots) and have X’s.

Classic Double Wedding Quilt Design

Are there bells ringing soon? Do you have friends or family members tying the knot?

This beautiful design (if I do say so myself) was based on a traditional quilting pattern. The Double Wedding Rings Quilt has been remade in many variations throughout the years and I am happy to offer my take on it now. I even unpacked my wedding dress for some photos!

Like all of my patterns, this pattern includes written line-by-line instructions and charts for two techniques: interlocking crochet and overlay mosaic crochet. The overlay mosaic crochet version has X’s on the chart to show where the dropped double crochets go.

This pattern can be made as large or as small as you want; simply adjust how many repeat you would like to do and choose a yarn weight and hook that matches.

This pattern has been updated to include center-out instructions for both techniques as well as the original bottom-up version.


The base size for the interlocking crochet method is 81 x 81. This is the same size as my collection of large squares (see a list here). The outer rows that lock the layers together show three solid lines but those lines won’t interfere with the image because there are markings to show you which parts to repeat.

Because the chart is the same size as my other oversized squares it works great as a pillow or as a panel in a mix-and-match blanket.

Kimberly Windsor-Johnson made this interlocking sample of one square (no repeats) and you can see how awesome the back looks too!


Remember, this design can be made as a single square or a blanket as large as you want!

Main Color First

My patterns always instruct you to look at the chart to be sure you’re using the colors the way you intend to. I get a lot of messages from people who aren’t sure which color to use first (and I don’t mind these messages) but I always try to help now and educate for later.

For reference, on the interlocking crochet sample above, the dark blue-green is used as the Main Color (MC).

Solid Overlay Mosaic Crochet

The mosaic version has had the interlocking mesh dots removed and the unnecessary extra border lines that locked the interlocking mesh layers together are not on the mosaic chart. The mosaic chart is 79 x 79 because of that.

For my mosaic sample I have used grey as the main color (which shows as blue on the accompanying chart).

I made mine 2 repeats wide and 3 repeats tall. I used a 5 mm hook and my yarn is technically a 4 weight but felt a bit thin. The finished size was 36″ wide by 52″ tall. It works as a small couch throw and feels so nice draped around my shoulders!

Wrong Side of Mosaic Option

The wrong side of your overlay mosaic crochet project will be striped with a faint illusion of the front. There are fancy techniques you can use to change the way the back looks – but I like the simple version.

Right & Wrong Side of Interlocking Crochet Option

Cyncitycrochets made this interlocking sample and she decided to use white as the main color which would correspond to the black squares on that chart. The result is stunning on both the right and wrong side.

In my opinion, you will want a minimum of 3 repeats to get the rings effect otherwise it looks a bit like a flower to me. My husband called it propellers.

Envelope Border

The envelope border on my overlay mosaic sample took me about 4 hours.

I used 4 rows of single crochet in the back loop only after a round of surface single crochets on the ends with the fringe.
