Rocking Horse Update

I have just added a third file to my Rocking Horse pattern. The original two files use the same chart for the interlocking crochet technique and the overlay mosaic crochet technique. This third file is also for the overlay mosaic crochet technique but the chart has been adjusted to removed the unnecessary interlocking crochet dots.

When I draw a chart for interlocking crochet it has to follow certain rules in order to translate properly into the actual crocheted piece. Overlay mosaic crochet has different rules but you can use the technique to follow a chart written for interlocking crochet.

I have a tutorial on how to read a chart drawn for interlocking crochet but use the overlay mosaic crochet method. Technically, you don’t need to know this information, since all of my patterns include the written instructions.

I have also adjusted the interlocking pattern slightly. There were a few pixels in the chart that weren’t really how I wanted them so I figured if I am doing an update I might as well fix it now.

If you purchased this pattern on Etsy you’ll need to contact me with your order number and I will send the updated files to you.

Ravelry is easy for updating. You can update your library at your convenience.

Size information

The original chart is 243 x 243. With worsted weight yarn that makes your blanket about 61″ square. When I adjusted the chart I removed the border lines that lock the layers together and I changed the hook size and gauge to accommodate all the double crochet stitches beside each other.
