Large Squares

Large Squares

Interlocking & Mosaic

Every design comes with the full written pattern and chart for both interlocking crochet and overlay mosaic crochet.

Size

The designs in this category begin with 40 windows when you use the interlocking crochet technique. They have a chart size of 81 x 81.

Some of the mosaic crochet versions use the original chart, and some have been adjusted. The adjusted charts are 77 x 77 and do not have the interlocking mesh dots on them.

These squares will finish to about 20″ square.

The images below take you to that design’s blog entry. There are also a few older designs that don’t have a blog entry.
