Abstract Queen CAL: Mosaic Part 9

October 27, 2020: Part 9 – Rows 193-216

Work in progress by Nina Mayer

It has been another week with no new patterns. I did update the rest of the scarf patterns to include mosaic instructions but that is not as exciting as a new pattern. Some of you may have seen the new scarf I am working on (based on Nina’s tattoo).

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.

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: blue 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 8

October 20, 2020: Part 8 – Rows 169-192

Crocheted by Emily Harmon using the interlocking crochet technique

I published a new pattern last night! It wasn’t the scarf or hats though, it was a dinosaur blanket! My son made such a sweet request that I just had to do it. Get your copy before Oct 21, 2020 for 30% off (Etsy or Ravelry).

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.

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 in a nice printable PDF. 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!

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

AC = Accent Color. Second color used.
MC = Main Color. First color used.
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: blue 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: Mosaic Part 7

October 13, 2020: Part 7 – Rows 145-168

Work in progress by Debbie Burford – using the mosaic technique on Abstract Queen

How can it be the middle of October already!? And how is the Firetruck the last pattern I published? I am slacking on new patterns! It has been crazy here at home, temporary home. It feels very temporary and it is weird. The kids are adjusting but it is hard on them. I am glad I had the foresight to set up a lot of this CAL beforehand. Maybe tonight, after this release and the weekly email, I can get back to one of my half-finished patterns.

I have also been doing more crocheting lately as I try to get some winter hats and scarves made up for my kiddos. I should just follow a pattern but instead I made up some random stuff. The colorful striped hat was supposed to be for my toddler but it is too big for my husband lol. I will write up the pattern for the other two hats though. Keep your eyes peeled!

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.

Abstract Queen CAL: Interlocking Part 7

October 13, 2020: Part 7 – Rows 145-168

Crocheted by Emily Harmon using the interlocking crochet technique

How can it be the middle of October already!? And how is the Firetruck the last pattern I published? I am slacking on new patterns! It has been crazy here at home, temporary home. It feels very temporary and it is weird. The kids are adjusting but it is hard on them. I am glad I had the foresight to set up a lot of this CAL beforehand. Maybe tonight, after this release and the weekly email, I can get back to one of my half-finished patterns.

I have also been doing more crocheting lately as I try to get some winter hats and scarves made up for my kiddos. I should just follow a pattern but instead I made up some random stuff. The colorful striped hat was supposed to be for my toddler but it is too big for my husband lol. I will write up the pattern for the other two hats though. Keep your eyes peeled!

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.

Mosaic Key

MC = Main Color: blue 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: Mosaic Part 5

September 29, 2020: Part 5 – Rows 97-120

Work in progress by Nina Mayer

I am releasing this week’s part a day early because tomorrow it’s moving day for us and I don’t want another thing on my to-do list.

This week I have been focused on finding us an apartment (you may have heard we were buying a new house but that didn’t happen because my husband lost his job due to “restructuring”) and selling things we’re not taking with us and packing the things we are keeping.

But, at the beginning of the week I did get some computer time in, and I finished updating all my shawl patterns to include mosaic instructions along with their original interlocking/ Locked Filet Mesh/ LFM.

You can find the list of all my patterns here.

I am excited to publish my first non-LFM, non-mosaic pattern on October 1: “Vickie Likes Red”. The picture below is the test from Robin. She used a 5 mm hook and about 1.75 skeins of Caron Jumbo Yarn (that’s 12 oz of worsted weight/4 yarn per skein). Her colorway (Blue Plum) looks beautiful on her gorgeous daughter.

You can buy the pre-release of “Vickie Likes Red” for a discount! Add it to your cart to see the sale.

I have to take a pretty picture of my newest “-40 square” and then I can publish that pattern too! Any guesses to what image is on it?


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 mosaic pattern.

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!

Mosaic Key

MC = Main Color: blue 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

Abstract Queen CAL: Interlocking Part 5

September 29, 2020: Part 5 – Rows 97-120

Crocheted by Emily Harmon using the interlocking crochet technique

I am releasing this week’s part a day early because tomorrow it’s moving day for us and I don’t want another thing on my to-do list.

This week I have been focused on finding us an apartment (you may have heard we were buying a new house but that didn’t happen because my husband lost his job due to “restructuring”) and selling things we’re not taking with us and packing the things we are keeping.

But, at the beginning of the week I did get some computer time in, and I finished updating all my shawl patterns to include mosaic instructions along with their original interlocking/ Locked Filet Mesh/ LFM.

You can find the list of all my patterns here.

I am excited to publish my first non-LFM, non-mosaic pattern on October 1: “Vickie Likes Red”. The picture below is the test from Robin. She used a 5 mm hook and about 1.75 skeins of Caron Jumbo Yarn (that’s 12 oz of worsted weight/4 yarn per skein). Her colorway (Blue Plum) looks beautiful on her gorgeous daughter.

You can buy the pre-release of “Vickie Likes Red” for a discount! Add it to your cart to see the sale.

I have to take a pretty picture of my newest “-40 square” and then I can publish that pattern too! Any guesses to what image is on it?


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)
  • 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

AC = Accent Color. Second color used.
MC = Main Color. First color used.
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 4

September 22, 2020: Part 4 – Rows 73-96

Nina Mayer’s work in progress

I don’t have much news this week. I haven’t drawn up any new patterns but I did update these ones to include the mosaic instructions: Fishies 20, Fishies Scarf, and Skyline Shawl. Please let me know if you’re waiting on a specific pattern to be updated.

And, I will be releasing this non-mosaic, non-interlocking, regular crochet scarf /shawl pattern on October 1. Check out the beautiful version Kimberly crocheted below! The pattern is called “Vickie Likes Red”.

You can purchase this pattern before I release it – you will get $1 CAD off. Click the image below and add it to your cart to see the discount.

Mosaic Key

MC = Main Color: blue 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
