Coffee Time Mug

Mosaic sample crocheted by Ann Walter.

Interlocking & Mosaic

This design includes the full pattern and charts for both techniques.

The mosaic version is solid.

Right- & Left-Handed

This design comes with the full written pattern (in both techniques) for left-handed crocheters!

I have added left-handed line-by-line instructions to all my designs with words. See the collection on Ravelry.

Wall Hanging

I designed this as a wall hanging. Therefore I recommend a fingering weight yarn.

Combo of Two patterns

Last year I published a set of wall hangings in an eBook: “Coffee Time Wall Hanging Set”.

The set included:

  • Coffee Time Wall Hanging
  • Steaming Mug Wall Hanging
  • Sugar Cubes Wall Hanging

This new designs combines the mug and the quote into one wall hanging.

I have added this new pattern to the old EBook. Ravelry-users will have an update waiting for them. Etsy-users will need to email me with their receipt number for the Coffee Time Wall Hanging Set and I will send them this new pattern.

Multiple OPTIONS

With the individual wall hanging purchase (on Ravelry or Etsy) you’ll have access to two (2) pattern files: one for interlocking crochet and one for overlay mosaic crochet. With the EBook purchase you’ll have access to four (4) designs. Each design has an option for both crochet techniques.

Each technique contains the full written pattern for right-handers, then left-handers, and then a multi-page chart.

The mosaic charts have x’s showing where the dropped double crochets go. I also include a chart-reading instruction sheet and a photo tutorial for the optional double envelope border with every pattern.

The interlocking crochet option includes a chart-reading instruction sheet as well.


Most of my patterns start with the Main Color (MC) in both the interlocking crochet option and the overlay mosaic crochet pattern.

This design is different!

The interlocking crochet option begins with the MC, as usual. But the overlay mosaic crochet option begins with the CC.

The border lines have been completely removed from the mosaic version. The background color goes right to the edges.

The MC in both techniques refers to the color that writes the words while the other color is the background.


A big thank you to my testers: Alexandra, Ann Walter, Cindy Daling, Linda Bakker, Patti Cole, ScorpiosHook, and Sheryl Dunbar.
