Rocking Horse Update

I am pleased to present an adjusted overlay mosaic crochet option for Rocking Horse.

The original two files use the same chart for the interlocking crochet technique and the overlay mosaic crochet technique. This new third file is also for the overlay mosaic crochet technique but the chart has been adjusted to removed the unnecessary interlocking crochet dots.

This pattern was originally published in August 2020 with an interlocking crochet option and an overlay mosaic crochet option using the interlocking crochet technique.


There are now 3 files because the adjusted, solid overlay mosaic crochet option is included in the listing as well.

Drawing the Rocking Horse Charts

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.

Reading an Interlocking Chart for the Overlay Mosaic Crochet Technqiue

I have a tutorial on how to read a chart drawn for interlocking crochet but using the overlay mosaic crochet method.

Technically, you don’t need to know this information, since all of my patterns include the written instructions.


The main update is this new, third file with the adjusted, overlay mosaic crochet option where the solid areas are actually solid.

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.

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.
