Interlocking Crochet

Key (US terminology)

AC = accent color (white on chart)

MC = main color (black on chart)

RS = right side: the side of your work that will show the finished design

WS = wrong side: the back of your project

Back = the side not facing you

Front = the side currently facing you

ch = chain

sk = skip a stitch

sc = single crochet: insert hook, yarn over, pull up loop, yarn over, pull through both loops

dc = double crochet: yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull up loop, *yarn over, pull through two loops* twice

tr = treble crochet twice: yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull up loop, *yarn over, pull through two loops* three times

B = double crochet (dc) behind, and chain 1

F = double crochet (dc) in front, and chain 1

EB = end stitch in back: using AC, dc into the last AC window, working behind MC

EF = end stitch in front: using AC, dc into the last AC window, working in front of MC

ES = end stitch: dc into the last window space

ACB = put AC yarn to the side facing away from you

ACF = bring the AC yarn to the side facing you

Hints

Remember, each color is worked into itself only and there is a chain space between each DC.

Don’t confuse RS / WS with Front / Back.

Continue from where we left off last week.

Mosaic Crochet

Key (US terminology)

MC = Main Color: black in chart

CC = Contrasting Color: white in chart

ch = chain

SC = single crochet: insert hook, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through both loops on hook

sc = SC into Back Loop only

DC = double crochet: yarn over, insert hook, pull up a loop, *yarn over, pull through two loops* twice

dc = dropped double crochet: skip next single crochet, and instead double crochet into Front Loop of stitch in the row below

JS = Joining Stitch: create slip knot, insert hook under both loops, complete a normal single crochet

ES = End Stitch: single crochet under both loops, chain 1, cut yarn and pull through tightly

Remember to skip the same number of stitch(es) behind your dc(s) before doing your next sc

Technique

  • The front of your work is always facing you (this is the right side, the side showing the design)
  • You are always working from the right to the left (opposite for left-handed crocheters)
  • You tie on a new yarn at the beginning of each row and cut it at the end
    • Tails don’t need to be longer than an inch and a half (unless you want to use them as fringe, like on scarf)
  • Yarn colors can be anything you like
    • They need to contrast well (try a black and white photo to see if they are too similar)
    • They need to be the same weight (size/thickness)
  • I prefer using a chainless SC to create my foundation row because then I have tails on both sides of my work just like all the other rows will have
  • Even-numbered rows use MC; odd-numbered rows use CC

Cancel Everything

My website transfer has been an epic failure.

After a week of frustration, time-loss, extra costs, and hours and hours of “fixing” with no end in sight… I am canceling it.

I will have a few more hiccups as I reinstate this current site and get my domain back but it will be better in the long run.

Please give me a few days to make things normal here again. Don’t unsubscribe. Don’t abandon me yet lol.

I’ve extended the “GLAMPING” code to get 40% off until June 20 on Ravelry

Interlocking Crochet

Key (US terminology)

AC = accent color (white on chart)

MC = main color (black on chart)

RS = right side: the side of your work that will show the finished design

WS = wrong side: the back of your project

Back = the side not facing you

Front = the side currently facing you

ch = chain

sk = skip a stitch

sc = single crochet: insert hook, yarn over, pull up loop, yarn over, pull through both loops

dc = double crochet: yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull up loop, *yarn over, pull through two loops* twice

tr = treble crochet: yarn over twice, insert hook, yarn over, pull up loop, *yarn over, pull through two loops* three times

B = double crochet (dc) behind, and chain 1

F = double crochet (dc) in front, and chain 1

EB = end stitch in back: using AC, dc into the last AC window, working behind MC

EF = end stitch in front: using AC, dc into the last AC window, working in front of MC

ES = end stitch: dc into the last window space

ACB = put AC yarn to the side facing away from you

ACF = bring the AC yarn to the side facing you

Hints

Remember, each color is worked into itself only and there is a chain space between each DC.

Don’t confuse RS / WS with Front / Back.

Continue from where we left off last week.

Part 7 in interlocking crochet complete

See you next week for the next section of the pattern!

~*~*~*~*~ Or, begin here if you’re using the overlay mosaic technique! ~*~*~*~*~

This mosaic blanket is getting some strange color combos but here is my treble clef

Mosaic Crochet

Key (US terminology)

MC = Main Color: black in chart

CC = Contrasting Color: white in chart

ch = chain

SC = single crochet: insert hook, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through both loops on hook

sc = SC into Back Loop only

DC = double crochet: yarn over, insert hook, pull up a loop, *yarn over, pull through two loops* twice

dc = dropped double crochet: skip next single crochet, and instead double crochet into Front Loop of stitch in the row below

JS = Joining Stitch: create slip knot, insert hook under both loops, complete a normal single crochet

ES = End Stitch: single crochet under both loops, chain 1, cut yarn and pull through tightly

Remember to skip the same number of stitch(es) behind your dc(s) before doing your next sc

Technique

  • The front of your work is always facing you (this is the right side, the side showing the design)
  • You are always working from the right to the left (opposite for left-handed crocheters)
  • You tie on a new yarn at the beginning of each row and cut it at the end
    • Tails don’t need to be longer than an inch and a half (unless you want to use them as fringe, like on scarf)
  • Yarn colors can be anything you like
    • They need to contrast well (try a black and white photo to see if they are too similar)
    • They need to be the same weight (size/thickness)
  • I prefer using a chainless SC to create my foundation row because then I have tails on both sides of my work just like all the other rows will have
  • Even-numbered rows use MC; odd-numbered rows use CC

Sales of your finished items are, of course, unrestricted (and I wish you all the best!). I appreciate credit given to the designer when possible but it is not a requirement. You may tag me @AshleesLint or direct people to my website http://www.ashleeslint.com

Website Transfer

You may have noticed, the website is having issues.

I sent out a newsletter: https://mailchi.mp/0c8bd6de25a4/manyhugs-5168642

I don’t know if those who have subscribed to my blog here will get this notification or not.

But, just in case, let me tell you about my “website-drama” sale!

This sale is good on my Etsy shop and Ravelry store. Use code “GLAMPING” until 11:59 pm, CST, June 15, 2021 to get 40% off.

I am busy packing for our weekend holiday… or, I guess, right now I am just procrastinating from packing 🀣

Gotta get back to it!

Fleur De Lis Wall Hanging

I consider this a companion to my Eiffel Tower Wall Hanging. A friend requested the Fleur De Lis to go with the Eiffel Tower and I was happy to oblige. I’ve had a few asking about when and how they can get the Eiffel Tower pattern; at the end of August the rights will revert to me and I will publish on Etsy and Ravelry. Until then, it is only available in Issue 68 of Crochet Now! magazine.

You can get your copy on Etsy or Ravelry. It is 20% off for the first few days! *no code needed, offer expires 11:59 pm CST, June 10, 2021.

Wall Hanging

I have included instructions for turning this rectangle into a wall hanging as such: cut a piece of MC yarn about 4x the length of your dowel. Whip stitch around the dowel into each stitch across the top. Tie another piece of yarn to each end of the dowel to use when hanging on the wall.

But, of course, you are free to do whatever you like with your piece! My tester, @raki_crochet did these beautiful single crochet (sc – US terminology) tabs. Each tab is 7 stitches wide and 17 rows tall. There are 11 stitches between each tab.

I am sure you can find a few options on YouTube – I don’t have a video on adding the dowel for a wall hanging yet, but maybe someday I will add my voice!

Fringe

Created naturally with the overlay mosaic technique. An optional addition when done in interlocking crochet.

The fringe on the sides is a by-product of cutting your yarn for each row when using the mosaic crochet technique. You can add an envelope border to hide them but I think they look good as a design attribute.

If you work this pattern using the interlocking technique there is no fringe. But, because it looks so good, I would add fringe to the bottom or to the two sides like the mosaic version.

These instructions are included in the interlocking part of the pattern: cut 1 piece each of both the MC and AC yarn for each window you will add fringe to. Length can be whatever you choose, I suggest 8-10” each which gives you about a 4” tassel.

Holding one strand of each color, fold in half and pull the loop from the front to the back (go through each window along the bottom edge).

Drop the ends inside the loop and pull tight.

You can see that my photos are using a different pattern (the MusicCAL, to be specific), but you can add tassels to anything!

Yarn weight and hook size can easily be adjusted, just keep in mind your finished project will use a different amount of yarn and be a different finished size. A gauge swatch can help with that.

Watch my YouTube tutorials! I also have a free photo tutorial in PDF form on this technique available in my Facebook group (Ashlee Brotzell Designs) and on Ravelry. All my social media links are here: https://linktr.ee/LFMandMosaic

Important Details

  • US crochet terminology
  • Chart is 77 x 87
  • Finished measurements approximately 13” x 14.5”
  • 3 mm hook (C/2)
  • Wooden Dowel: 1/2” diameter, 16” length
  • Finishing needle
  • Scheepjes Organicon (Or any fingering weight yarn to meet gauge) (260 yards total)
    • Main color (MC) – 120 yards (plus 20 for optional sc border when done with interlocking)
    • Accent color (AC) – 120 yards
    • Yarn estimates do not include fringe! If you make long fringe you will need more yarn.
  • Interlocking Gauge: 13 dc x 26 rows = 4”
  • Mosaic Gauge: 26 sc x 26 rows = 4”

You may have noticed that this pattern is SO CLOSE to being the same size as my 40-windows squares (chart 81 x 81). I originally tried drawing it up to be the same but the dimensions just weren’t working. I do like it when one pattern can be used for more than one thing, but in this case I just had to make it it’s own wall hanging without being easily added to the large afghan squares.

I know that yarn weight can also be a confusing thing. We have so many different terms for the same thing. Yarnsub.com can give you some options, or you can check out what the Yarn Council has to say about yarn weights.

A final note: most of my patterns are written up with only two colors (main color and accent/contrast color). A few have included extra colors and I want to make sure everyone knows that I am not the type of designer to get bent out of shape when people take my patterns and create their own beautiful works of art. So, add some color, mix and match with other patterns, make your project your own. Just don’t sell my pattern as your own.

Many Hugs: Baby Blanket

Someone requested a β€œhugs” version of my β€œlove blanket”, so here it is!

They were posting in the Facebook group: Mosaic Crochet World and they said they love Rosina Plane’s Hugs square and specifically asked if I could make this. I hope it lives up to the expectations!

This blanket is nearly the same as my β€œPreemie Love Blanket”. It is the same size and it uses the same background: β€œMany Hearts”.

The original “Preemie Love Blanket” – the inspiration for the “Many Hugs” baby blanket

Just like all my other patterns, this pattern includes a chart as well as written instructions for both of my favorite techniques: interlocking crochet and overlay mosaic crochet.

I have included right- and left-handed instructions for both techniques. I have a few patterns that have words on them and instead of forcing all the left-handed crocheters to read each line from end to beginning I have reversed each line already. See my other patterns that include left-handed instructions in this ravelry bundle: https://www.ravelry.com/bundles/left-handed-instructions-included

This chart for this pattern is 121 x 121, which means your blanket will be about 30″ square if you meet my gauge. When I crocheted the Preemie Love Blanket I used a 5 mm hook instead of my usual 4.5 mm hook but I only made it 0.5 inches larger 🀣 so obviously the hook didn’t force me into a looser tension enough.

**For Interlocking Crochet, You Will Need**
– Worsted Weight Yarn (1050-1075 yards)
– Main Color (MC) – 525 yards plus 25 yards for optional SC border
– Accent Color (AC) – 525 yards
– Crochet hook: 4.5 mm (US7)
– Stitch marker
– Gauge: 16 stitches x 8 rows in one color = 4” square

**For Mosaic Crochet, You Will Need**
– Worsted Weight Yarn (1170-1370 yards)
– Main Color (MC) – 585 yards
– Coordinating Color (CC) – 585 yards
– Plus 200 yards for optional envelope border
– Crochet hook: 4.5 mm (US7)
– Scissors
– Gauge: 16 stitches x 16 rows = 4″ square

You can get this pattern on Etsy or Ravelry.

At one time I had considered getting rid of Etsy because the fees were too high but I have adjusted some things and I hope it can remain a viable option for awhile longer.

On Ravelry, I have set up a fun promotion: you can get “Many Hugs” FREE with a minimum purchase of $25 from my Ravelry Store. You MUST add “Many Hugs” to your cart at the same time as your $25 purchase. No code needed, offer expires June 9, 2021.

I have a lot of patterns in my drafts and a lot more in my head. I have been quite slow at getting them out lately while I focus on my family. I know you all understand and I am thankful for your patience and continuued support.

I also sent out an email to announce this new pattern and there’s a game: tell me how many free patterns were available in the email to win a free pattern of your choice from my Ravelry store! See the newsletter here: https://mailchi.mp/37fa8354833b/manyhugs

Blog Hop Feature: Rose in Bloom

I am happy to be part of a flower-themed blog-hop this month! Jo’s Crafty Hook has been sharing a FREE crochet pattern everyday and today one of my patterns is in the lineup!

This square can be used as a panel in a blanket, the front of a pillow form, a wall hanging, or just a baby blanket by itself! Normally it is a paid pattern, but today, for the flower blog hop, you can download it for FREE!

The pink graphic above links you directly to your ravelry cart where the free pattern is ready for you (using code: “CraftyHook“, valid until June 7, 2021).

I originally published this square, Rose in Bloom, in August 2020. But, back then I didn’t create a blog post for every new pattern. I have it listed in my Doctor Who Series because it repesents Rose, the character, for me. πŸ’•

All of my patterns include written line-by-line instructions for the interlocking technique and the overlay mosaic technique, as well as a chart (81 x 81 for Rose in Bloom).

I crocheted my sample in the photo using the overlay mosaic technique. I have a pdf tutorial and a YouTube tutorial on this technique.

I used a 5 mm hook instead of my usual 4.5 mm hook because I was hoping it would be large enough to be a baby blanket all by itself. With a 4.5 mm hook my square is 20″ but with the 5 mm hook it came out 22″. I used an envelope border to cover the tails that are created with the mosaic technique and my final piece was 26″.

Usually I join my squares of this size to other squares of this size and create a blanket that way.

I prefer to use the interlocking crochet method when I plan on joining squares.

Interlocking Crochet

Key (US terminology)

AC = accent color (white on chart)

MC = main color (black on chart)

RS = right side: the side of your work that will show the finished design

WS = wrong side: the back of your project

Back = the side not facing you

Front = the side currently facing you

ch = chain

sk = skip a stitch

sc = single crochet: insert hook, yarn over, pull up loop, yarn over, pull through both loops

dc = double crochet: yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull up loop, *yarn over, pull through two loops* twice

tr = treble crochet: yarn over twice, insert hook, yarn over, pull up loop, *yarn over, pull through two loops* three times

B = double crochet (dc) behind, and chain 1

F = double crochet (dc) in front, and chain 1

EB = end stitch in back: using AC, dc into the last AC window, working behind MC

EF = end stitch in front: using AC, dc into the last AC window, working in front of MC

ES = end stitch: dc into the last window space

ACB = put AC yarn to the side facing away from you

ACF = bring the AC yarn to the side facing you

Hints

Remember, each color is worked into itself only and there is a chain space between each DC.

Don’t confuse RS / WS with Front / Back.

Continue from where we left off last week.

Part 6 in interlocking crochet complete, another divider section is included in the written pattern here but not shown in the image

See you next week for the next section of the pattern!

~*~*~*~*~ Or, begin here if you’re using the overlay mosaic technique! ~*~*~*~*~

If you are changing colors for each section you actually need to change colors 2 rows before the sectiom starts. The sections are divided to make each part look finished, not in anticipation of changing colors. I will anticipate better in my next CAL πŸ˜‰

Mosaic Crochet

Key (US terminology)

MC = Main Color: black in chart

CC = Contrasting Color: white in chart

ch = chain

SC = single crochet: insert hook, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through both loops on hook

sc = SC into Back Loop only

DC = double crochet: yarn over, insert hook, pull up a loop, *yarn over, pull through two loops* twice

dc = dropped double crochet: skip next single crochet, and instead double crochet into Front Loop of stitch in the row below

JS = Joining Stitch: create slip knot, insert hook under both loops, complete a normal single crochet

ES = End Stitch: single crochet under both loops, chain 1, cut yarn and pull through tightly

Remember to skip the same number of stitch(es) behind your dc(s) before doing your next sc

Technique

  • The front of your work is always facing you (this is the right side, the side showing the design)
  • You are always working from the right to the left (opposite for left-handed crocheters)
  • You tie on a new yarn at the beginning of each row and cut it at the end
    • Tails don’t need to be longer than an inch and a half (unless you want to use them as fringe, like on scarf)
  • Yarn colors can be anything you like
    • They need to contrast well (try a black and white photo to see if they are too similar)
    • They need to be the same weight (size/thickness)
  • I prefer using a chainless SC to create my foundation row because then I have tails on both sides of my work just like all the other rows will have
  • Even-numbered rows use MC; odd-numbered rows use CC
