Winter 2021 CAL: LFM Part 4

The design is now mirroring itself back to the beginning. My first few CALs taught me that most people prefer complete symmetry! I usually prefer things to be balanced without being symmetrical but you’ve got to give the people what they want! LOL

If you’re new to my patterns, please note that this is the INTERLOCKING CROCHET VERSION. Go back to the main landing page to find the links to the other sections or for the overlay mosaic version.


The pattern KEY and other details can be found in Section 1. Remember, the width of this pattern is adjustable so you need to repeat between the asterisks (*) to get your required width; the blanket is designed to be six repeats wide.

If you’re looking for a chart you’ll need to purchase the pattern on Etsy or Ravelry. This free version online contains the written instructions only.

Use code “MILD20” to take 20% off your purchase of the pattern for the duration of the CAL
(offer ends January 31, 2022).


Repeat between asterisks (*) six times for a full blanket.

Winter 2021 CAL: Mosaic Part 4

You may notice that the design is mirrored from top to bottom. My first Crochet-A-Longs taught me that most people prefer complete symmetry! I am usually a fan of things that are a bit more abstract but I try to give the people what they want sometimes.

If you’re new to my patterns, please note that this is the OVERLAY MOSAIC VERSION. Go back to the main landing page to find the links to the other sections or for the interlocking version.


The pattern KEY and other details can be found in Section 1. Remember, the width of this pattern is adjustable so you need to repeat between the asterisks (*) to get your required width; the blanket is designed to be six repeats wide.

If you’re looking for a chart (with X’s showing the dropped double crochets) you’ll need to purchase the pattern on Etsy or Ravelry. This free version online contains the written instructions only.

Use code “MILD20” to take 20% off your purchase of this pattern for the duration of the CAL
(offer ends January 31, 2022).

{Even- rows use MC; odd-numbered rows use CC}

Continue from previous section. Repeat between the *s six (6) times for a blanket.

Winter 2021 CAL: Mosaic Part 2

We made it through the first half of the holiday season! I asked in my Facebook group for people to tell us which technique they are using (or plan on using). Team Mosaic seems to have a larger following than Team Interlocking. Let us know what technique you’re using in my Facebook Group: Ashlee Brotzell Designs.

I’ve just published a new pattern: Cupcake 20 and also updated an older pattern: Pins and Needles. I’m also getting ready to publish my newest “square a month” eBook (like “A Year of Gnomes” last year) and I hope you’ll all really like this year’s designs too!

If you’re new to my patterns, please note that this is the OVERLAY MOSAIC VERSION. Go back to the main landing page to find the links to the other sections or for the interlocking version.


The pattern KEY and other details can be found in Section 1. Remember, the width of this pattern is adjustable so you need to repeat between the asterisks (*) to get your required width; the blanket is designed to be six repeats wide.

If you’re looking for a chart (with X’s showing the dropped double crochets) you’ll need to purchase the pattern on Etsy or Ravelry. This free version online contains the written instructions only.

Use code “MILD20” to take 20% off your purchase of the pattern for the duration of the CAL
(offer ends January 31, 2022).

{Even- rows use MC; odd-numbered rows use CC}

Continue from previous section. Repeat between the *s six (6) times for a blanket.

Winter 2021 CAL: LFM Part 1

Let’s get this party started! Thank you so much for joining me in creating this warm winter blanket! You may notice that I use “interlocking” sometimes and “LFM” or “Locked Filet Mesh” at other times. They all mean the same thing (but it is much quicker to type “LFM”).

If you’re new to my patterns, please note that this is the INTERLOCKING CROCHET VERSION. Go back to the main landing page to find the links to the other sections or for the overlay mosaic version.

If you’re looking for a chart you’ll need to purchase the pattern on Etsy or Ravelry. This free version online contains the written instructions only.

Use code “MILD20” to take 20% off your purchase of the pattern for the duration of the CAL
(offer ends January 31, 2022).


The width of this pattern is adjustable. It is designed as a blanket (six repeats of the pattern), but you can make it larger or smaller. Repeat between the asterisks (*) to get your required width.

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.

Interlocking Crochet Details

  • US crochet terminology
  • Finished measurements approximately 53” x 56”
  • 4.5 mm hook (US7)
  • Worsted weight yarn (3350 – 3425 yards total)
    • Main color (MC) – 1675 yards plus 75 for optional border
    • Accent color (AC) – 1675 yards
  • Gauge: 16 DC x 8 rows = 4”
I’ve used a thinner yarn and smaller hook for this sample; it is only 6″ wide instead of the expected 8.5″.

Interlocking Crochet KEY

AC = accent color (second color used, blue in image above)
MC = main color (first color used, grey in image above)
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: 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
F = DC in front, then chain 1
B = DC behind, then 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
ACF = bring the AC yarn to the side facing you
ACB = put AC yarn to the side facing away from you

Interlocking Crochet Technique

See my YouTube tutorials or PDF tutorial if you’re new to this technique.

Chart for Foundation Rows

This pattern has been designed as a blanket but it is very easy to to adjust the width. If you are doing the full blanket you will repeat the instructions between the asterisks (*) six times (the final column in the chart below shows you how many chains and windows to begin with).

If you’re not able to match gauge then your finished measurements will be different, but this chart still should help you determine how many chains or windows to start with.

Single width (no repeats)Width added per repeat (height stays the same)Repeat six times (blanket)
Chart size41 x 225+ 34211 x 225
Finished measurements10” x 55.5”+ 8.5”53” x 55.5”
Main Color yardage330 + 50 for border+ 270 + 5 for border1675 + 75
Accent Color yardage330+ 2701675
MC Windows to start20+ 17105
MC Chains to start44+ 34214
AC Chains to start42+ 34212
Use this chart to adjust the width of your project

Foundation Rows

  1. Using MC create 105 windows (for a full blanket, or use chart above to adjust):
    1. I prefer the chainless technique (chain 6, dc into first stitch, chain 1, tr into same space, *chain 1, tr into 2nd part of the previous tr* repeat as many times as needed).
    1. Alternatively, you can Ch 211 + 3 (or 4 if you chain tighter than me), then DC in 6th (or 7th) chain from your hook. *Ch 1, Sk 1, DC* repeat until the end. Place stitch marker so your work doesn’t unravel.
  2. With your AC, Ch 211 +1 (or 2 if you chain tighter). Place MC windows on top of this chain (make sure the end with the stitch marker is at your left) then pull the tail of your AC through the window on the right end (see picture below). DC through the back of the next window into the 6th (or 7th) chain from your hook.
  3. *Ch 1, Sk 1, DC through the back* repeat to end. Place stitch marker so your work doesn’t unravel. Both stitch markers should be on the same end.
Step 2 of foundation trellis.
Foundation windows (MC, black above) showing step 2 where AC (the gold) is put through the window. If you’re left-handed this will be mirrored.

Repeat between asterisks (*) six times for a full blanket.

Winter 2021 CAL: Mosaic Part 1

Let’s get this party started! Thank you so much for joining me in creating this warm winter blanket!

If you’re new to my patterns, please note that this is the OVERLAY MOSAIC VERSION. Go back to the main landing page to find the links to the other sections or for the interlocking version.

If you’re looking for a chart (with X’s showing the dropped double crochets) you’ll need to purchase the pattern on Etsy or Ravelry. This free version online contains the written instructions only.

Use code “MILD20” to take 20% off your purchase of the pattern for the duration of the CAL
(offer ends January 31, 2022).


The width of this pattern is adjustable. It is designed as a blanket (six repeats of the pattern), but you can make it larger or smaller. Repeat between the asterisks (*) to get your required width.

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.

Overlay Mosaic Details

  • Finished measurements approximately 53” x 56”
  • 4.5 mm hook (US7)
  • Worsted weight yarn (3200 – 3800 yards)
  • Main color – 1475 yards
  • Contrasting color – 1725 yards
  • Plus, optional envelope border – 600 yards
  • Gauge: 16 stitches x 16 rows = 4”
Crocheted by Cristina

Overlay Mosaic Crochet KEY

MC = Main Color: dark blue in image above
CC = Contrasting Color: light blue in image above
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

Overlay Mosaic Crochet Technique

Please see the YouTube tutorial for more details. I use a single-row mosaic technique where you join and cut every row.

  • 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
  • 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

Foundation Row (Row 0): use Main Color (MC)

An error! My apologies! The foundation row math has been updated! It should say 207 stitches needed for the full blanket.

Use a chainless SC technique to create repeats of 34 +3 SC. Or chain 34 +4, SC in 2nd from hook and all the way back across. Cut and tie off.

FOR A BLANKET, AS DESIGNED: (34 x 6) = 204 +3 = 207 foundation single crochet stitches needed.

Switch to Contrasting Color (CC) {Even- rows use MC; odd-numbered rows use CC}

Repeat between the *s six (6) times for a blanket.

Winter 2021 Crochet-A-Long (CAL)

Here in Saskatchewan, Canada we have had some abnormally kind weather lately. We were really thankful for the mild weather while we moved (our new place is 110 kms from our old place). At the end of November last year we had a ton of snow. I’ve linked a local news article below for fun.

We are nowhere near done unpacking but we have slept in our new house for a few nights now and I’m missing my crochet addiction. I know a lot of you will be working on Christmas gifts so because of that and because of my move I’ve planned for my next Crochet-A-Long (CAL) to begin on the first day of winter; that is December 21, 2021. Some of you might be frantically finishing gifts, and that’s okay, you can still join us as soon as you’re ready!

Our mild winter hasn’t given us much snow yet. This is our backyard, there’s another empty lot to the left that is ours and the trees between us and the neighbour mark our property line there.

My very creative title (sarcasm) for this CAL is “Winter 2021”. You might see me refer to it as “2021 Winter” at times because that’s how I have it saved on my computer; I’m trying to stay organized now that I have more than a year’s worth of pattern designs!

Similar to my previous CALs, you can purchase this pattern (the full written pattern, with charts, for both techniques) on Ravelry or Etsy or you can follow along on my blog for free! Sign up to my mailing list to be notified of the pattern release and each free section.

October Mystery Pattern Reveal

Spoiler alert! If you haven’t done the mystery pattern yet, it is no longer a mystery!

You can download the pattern directly from me here!

I hope you all enjoyed this little project! A few people said they had no idea what it was until they were done!

Mine is gold and black because I had these colors laying around. I hope you are pleased with the colors you chose. It is small, so you could always try again with different colors now that you know what it is. This yarn is worsted weight and my sample if 6.5″ x 5″.

I was thinking of making my foundation row as long as a scarf and then repeating the cat a few times for a cute little scarf. I would do ten repeats wide. But I haven’t had time to do that yet. A potholder or coaster is a good idea if you don’t want to join it to anything. You can always add an envelope border later (that’s my plan – later! lol).

I will make a draw from the facebook thread in about 14 hours and the winner will get a pattern of their choice!

The consolation prize for everyone else (besides this cute little cat pattern) is this coupon code: “OCTOBER2021“. Use this code to get $5 off your purchase of $10 or more (valid on Etsy and Ravelry) until October 31, 2021.
