Abstract Queen CAL: Interlocking Part 15

December 8, 2020: Part 15 – Rows 337-358

Crocheted by Emily Harmon using the interlocking crochet technique

Wow! You did it! This is the final section!

I am in love with every blanket I have seen, and I just know yours is gorgeous too!

Thank you so much for participating in my 3rd CAL! These blog posts will remain free forever, and I am looking forward to years and years of new Abstract Queen blankets being made.

In the here and now (December 2020) I have been creating some new holiday squares. I mentioned them last week. This is the list of patterns on sale on Ravelry (use code “Holiday20” to get 20% off until Dec. 31, 2020):

I also have 2 new Holiday bundles on Etsy now. The first 5 new squares are in bundle 1, and the 2nd batch is in bundle 2. I will have at least a 3rd bundle (but not sure about a 4th bundle).

Go back to the main Abstract Queen landing page if you want to find the mosaic version or the list of dates of each release.

The free parts on the blog do not include the chart, but you can purchase the pattern on Ravelry or Etsy, where you will receive the chart and instructions for both techniques in a nice printable PDF. I really appreciate the support!

Interlocking Information

  • US crochet terminology
  • Chart is 359 x 321 = 115,239 stitches!
  • Finished size 90” x 80” (Queen plus drape)
  • 4.5 mm hook (US7)
  • Worsted weight yarn (8250 yards)
    • Main color (black in chart) – 4100 yards plus 50 yards for optional SC border
    • Accent color – 4100 yards
  • Gauge: 16 DC x 8 rows = 4”

Key for Interlocking Crochet

RS = right side: the side of your work that will show the finished design
WS = wrong side: the back of your project
Front = the side currently facing you
Back = the side not facing you
Ch = chain
Sp = space
Sk = skip a stitch
SC = single crochet
DC = double crochet
F = DC in front, then CH 1
B = DC behind, then CH 1
ES = DC into the last window space
EF = end stitch in front: using AC, DC into the last AC window, working in front of MC
EB = end stitch in back: using AC, DC into the last AC window, working behind MC
ACF = bring the AC yarn to the side facing you
ACB = put AC yarn to the side facing away from you

Notes

  • If you chain tighter than me you may need to Ch 4 where I Ch 3
  • Don’t confuse RS / WS with Front / Back
  • Remember, each color is worked into itself only and there is a chain space between each DC

Abstract Queen CAL: Mosaic Part 15

Mosaic Key

MC = Main Color: black in chart
CC = Contrasting Color: white in chart
Sp = space
Sk = skip a stitch
CH = chain
SC = single crochet
sc = SC into Back Loop only
DC = double crochet
dc = DC into Front Loop of stitch, 2 rows below
JS = Joining Stitch: insert hook under both loops, pull up a loop, slip stitch, SC in same space
ES = End Stitch: SC under both loops, CH 1, cut yarn and pull through tightly

Mosaic Technique

  • Remember to skip the same number of stitch(es) behind your dc(s) before doing your next sc
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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)
    • My charts use black as the Main Color and white as the Coordinating Color
  • 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

WOW! You made it! You did it!

Now, what to do with all those tails?

You can add an envelope border if you want, see my post about that here. Other options include taking a needle and weaving every tail in. Go under and through the same-colored yarn to hide them well. Or you could simply knot them and trim them to be the same size and leave a visible fringe. You can also make a few macrame knots and turn your fringe into something slightly fancier. I’ve even seen people add beads!

You’re FINISHED!

Abstract Queen CAL: Mosaic Part 14

December 1, 2020: Part 14 – Rows 313-336

Nina Mayer’s nearly-finished blanket!

As we near the end of this CAL, I am thankful for all the support and love I’ve received over the last few months! You guys make me want to keep designing, so here’s some new squares for you!

Right now, they are only available on Ravelry but I will get them set up on Etsy as a bundle when I’ve got more to add with them. On Ravelry I have added all my holiday patterns into a sale bundle! Use code, “Holiday20“, to get 20% off any of these patterns until Dec. 31, 2020:

Dec 1 UPDATE: I have created an ebook for my new holiday squares! It is not included in the sale but by the time I am done adding patterns to it you will be saving a minimum of 30%. If you know you’re going to get all the new squares then this is the better deal for you 🙂

Get the ebook on Ravelry here

Mosaic Key

MC = Main Color: black in chart
CC = Contrasting Color: white in chart
Sp = space
Sk = skip a stitch
CH = chain
SC = single crochet
sc = SC into Back Loop only
DC = double crochet
dc = DC into Front Loop of stitch, 2 rows below
JS = Joining Stitch: insert hook under both loops, pull up a loop, slip stitch, SC in same space
ES = End Stitch: SC under both loops, CH 1, cut yarn and pull through tightly

Mosaic Technique

  • Remember to skip the same number of stitch(es) behind your dc(s) before doing your next sc
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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)
    • My charts use black as the Main Color and white as the Coordinating Color
  • 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

Abstract Queen CAL: Interlocking Part 12

November 17, 2020: Part 12 – Rows 265-288

Crocheted by Emily Harmon using the interlocking crochet technique

It’s been a good week here! I published this fun scarf: Yarn Heartbeat Scarf. You can get it on Etsy or Ravelry (there are still be some free downloads left on Ravelry, use code “FollowMe” – good for the first 1500 uses, there’s been 1350 as of posting this).

I also drew up a new pattern: Bonnet Girl Blanket. You can get her for 30% off (Ravelry)(Etsy) – expires Nov 17, 2020, 11:9 pm CST. Does she look more like Hobby Holly or Sunbonnet Sue to you?

Plus, I have just updated the squares that started it all! Abstract Boxes, Cones, Levels, Lines, and Stripe. Someday, all of my patterns will include interlocking AND mosaic instructions. But, remember, until they are updated, you can still use the charts for both techniques. Check out my YouTube video if you want to learn how to read the charts:

One more thing! BLACK FRIDAY SALE begins Friday (Nov 20-22, 2020): get 25% off everything in my Etsy store and on Ravelry!

You will see this same introduction on each part of the CAL. Scroll down to find the pattern instructions you’re looking for.

Abstract Queen CAL: Mosaic Part 12

November 17, 2020: Part 12 – Rows 265-288

Nina's work in progress - she has completed up to Section 12.
Up to section 12 by Nina Mayer

It’s been a good week here! I published this fun scarf: Yarn Heartbeat Scarf. You can get it on Etsy or Ravelry (there are still be some free downloads left on Ravelry, use code “FollowMe” – it’s good for the first 1500 uses, there’s been 1350 as of posting this).

I also drew up a new pattern: Bonnet Girl Blanket. You can get her for 30% off (Ravelry)(Etsy) – expires Nov 17, 2020, 11:9 pm CST. Does she look more like Hobby Holly or Sunbonnet Sue to you?

Plus, I have just updated the squares that started it all! Abstract Boxes, Cones, Levels, Lines, and Stripe. Someday, all of my patterns will include interlocking AND mosaic instructions. But, remember, until they are updated, you can still use the charts for both techniques. Check out my YouTube video if you want to learn how to read the charts:

One more thing! BLACK FRIDAY SALE begins Friday (Nov 20-22, 2020): get 25% off everything in my Etsy store and on Ravelry!

Go back to the main Abstract Queen landing page if you want to find the interlocking version or the list of dates of each release. Scroll down to find the pattern.

Subscribe to receive weekly updates by email!

The free parts on the blog do not include the chart, but you can purchase the pattern on Ravelry or Etsy, where you will receive the chart and instructions for both techniques. I really appreciate the support!

Join my Ravelry group or Facebook group share your progress, no matter when you start! And create a project page on Ravelry linked to the Abstract Queen pattern to be entered to win one of the weekly prizes!

Mosaic Key

MC = Main Color: black in chart
CC = Contrasting Color: white in chart
Sp = space
Sk = skip a stitch
CH = chain
SC = single crochet
sc = SC into Back Loop only
DC = double crochet
dc = DC into Front Loop of stitch, 2 rows below
JS = Joining Stitch: insert hook under both loops, pull up a loop, slip stitch, SC in same space
ES = End Stitch: SC under both loops, CH 1, cut yarn and pull through tightly

Mosaic Technique

  • Remember to skip the same number of stitch(es) behind your dc(s) before doing your next sc
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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)
    • My charts use black as the Main Color and white as the Coordinating Color
  • 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

Interlocking Information

  • US crochet terminology

  • Finished size 90” x 80” (Queen plus drape)
  • 4.5 mm hook (US7)

    • Accent color – 4100 yards
  • Gauge: 16 DC x 8 rows = 4”

Key for Interlocking Crochet

RS = right side: the side of your work that will show the finished design
WS = wrong side: the back of your project
Front = the side currently facing you
Back = the side not facing you
Ch = chain
Sp = space
Sk = skip a stitch
SC = single crochet
DC = double crochet
F = DC in front, then CH 1
B = DC behind, then CH 1
ES = DC into the last window space
EF = end stitch in front: using AC, DC into the last AC window, working in front of MC
EB = end stitch in back: using AC, DC into the last AC window, working behind MC
ACF = bring the AC yarn to the side facing you
ACB = put AC yarn to the side facing away from you

Notes

  • If you chain tighter than me you may need to Ch 4 where I Ch 3
  • Don’t confuse RS / WS with Front / Back
  • Remember, each color is worked into itself only and there is a chain space between each DC

Mosaic Key

MC = Main Color: black in chart
CC = Contrasting Color: white in chart
Sp = space
Sk = skip a stitch
CH = chain
SC = single crochet
sc = SC into Back Loop only
DC = double crochet
dc = DC into Front Loop of stitch, 2 rows below
JS = Joining Stitch: insert hook under both loops, pull up a loop, slip stitch, SC in same space
ES = End Stitch: SC under both loops, CH 1, cut yarn and pull through tightly

Mosaic Technique

  • Remember to skip the same number of stitch(es) behind your dc(s) before doing your next sc
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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)
    • My charts use black as the Main Color and white as the Coordinating Color
  • 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

Abstract Queen CAL: Interlocking Part 10

November 3, 2020: Part 10 – Rows 217-240

Crocheted by Emily Harmon using the interlocking crochet technique

I reached a milestone on YouTube: 1000 subscribers! It snuck up on me, I hadn’t looked at the number of subscribers for awhile, and then one morning I noticed it was 1000 exactly! So, to celebrate, I have put everything in my Etsy shop and Ravelry store for 50% off (you will need to use the code “YouTube1K” on Ravelry)! The sales end Nov. 4, 2020, so get it while the gettin’s good!

You will see this same introduction on each part of the CAL. Scroll down to find the pattern instructions you’re looking for.

Go back to the main Abstract Queen landing page if you want to find the mosaic version or the list of dates of each release.

The free parts on the blog do not include the chart, but you can purchase the pattern on Ravelry or Etsy, where you will receive the chart and instructions for both techniques in a nice printable PDF. I really appreciate the support!

Interlocking Information

  • US crochet terminology
  • Chart is 359 x 321 = 115,239 stitches!
  • Finished size 90” x 80” (Queen plus drape)
  • 4.5 mm hook (US7)

    • Main color (black in chart) – 4100 yards plus 50 yards for optional SC border
    • Accent color – 4100 yards
  • Gauge: 16 DC x 8 rows = 4”

Key for Interlocking Crochet

RS = right side: the side of your work that will show the finished design
WS = wrong side: the back of your project
Front = the side currently facing you
Back = the side not facing you
Ch = chain
Sp = space
Sk = skip a stitch
SC = single crochet
DC = double crochet
F = DC in front, then CH 1
B = DC behind, then CH 1
ES = DC into the last window space
EF = end stitch in front: using AC, DC into the last AC window, working in front of MC
EB = end stitch in back: using AC, DC into the last AC window, working behind MC
ACF = bring the AC yarn to the side facing you
ACB = put AC yarn to the side facing away from you

Notes

  • If you chain tighter than me you may need to Ch 4 where I Ch 3
  • Don’t confuse RS / WS with Front / Back
  • Remember, each color is worked into itself only and there is a chain space between each DC
