Year of Gnomes, Adjusted Mosaic Crochet Update

In 2021, I published a new gnome square each month (the series was called A Year of Gnomes). This year has been a new cat square each month (see 2022: A Year of Cats). So why am I talking about gnomes again?

The original squares were designed first as interlocking crochet patterns. The overlay mosaic crochet versions of each square used the interlocking chart but were written for the mosaic crochet technique.

The pictures above show above how the interlocking crochet method creates mesh dots naturally, and the effect can be reproduced using the overlay mosaic crochet technique.

Each gnome has now been updated to include a 3rd option: the adjusted overlay mosaic crochet pattern.

The interlocking mesh dots have been removed and the extra border lines have also been removed.

Each monthly gnome is available separately on Ravelry or Etsy. You can also buy an eBook (called “A Year of Gnomes”) on either platform that includes all 12 monthly gnomes and an all-in-one blanket pattern (so you don’t have to join squares). The all-in-one blanket pattern is not available separately.

If you purchased the eBook or any of the individual squares on Ravelry you will have an update available to you.
If you used Etsy you’ll need to email me with your order number and I will send you the updated files.

What else has changed?

The original mosaic crochet version of each of these squares used a chart that started as row 1. I haven’t changed the charts but I have changed the numbers of the rows. They now start at row 0 so that they match the written pattern completely.

But wait, there’s more!

Months after the “Year of Gnomes” was finished, a request came in for a title banner. I created the banner and added the free interlocking and overlay mosaic crochet patterns to the files in my Facebook group, Ashlee Brotzell Designs.

The adjusted mosaic crochet version of the free title banner can be viewed here or you can download the PDF in my Facebook group files.

Anytime there are words on my patterns I create a written pattern for left-handed crocheters as well. You can see my entire selection of patterns that have a left-handed version here on Ravelry: https://www.ravelry.com/bundles/left-handed-instructions-included

Patterns tested by Angela Kermack, CarolinevdB, Just_Duckie_Crochet, Just_Stitched_ByJS, Linda Bakker, and Wolsalon.

A Year of Gnomes Title Banner

An Overlay Mosaic Crochet Pattern

In 2021 I released a new gnome square each month. Months later, a request came in for a title banner.

The original squares were designed first as interlocking crochet patterns and the mosaic crochet versions of each square used the same chart. This updated pattern uses an adjusted chart: the interlocking mesh dots have been removed and the extra border lines have also been removed. This pattern includes right-handed and left-handed instructions so that the words remain legible for everyone.

There is no chart here in the free online version of this pattern, but there is an X-marked chart included in the PDF file found in my Facebook Group Files.

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.

  • 5 mm hook (H-8)
  • Worsted weight yarn (875 – 1375 yards)
    • Main color (blue on chart) – 375 yards

Overlay Mosaic Crochet Key

MC = Main Color: blue 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

FSC = foundation single crochet: chain 2, insert hook in first chain, yarn over and pull a loop through, yarn over and pull through one loop (chain made), yarn over and pull through remaining 2 loops (SC made); to make the next stitch insert your hook into the chain made previously

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

dc = the dropped DC goes into the same-colored stitch, 2 rows below, Front Loop Only
*the single crochet behind the dropped double crochet does not get used

sc = a single crochet in the body of the pattern is going into the Back Loop Only

Mosaic Crochet Stitch 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 Foundation Single Crochet 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) (black on the chart)

Use the foundation SC technique to create 241 FSC. Or chain 242, SC in 2nd chain from hook and SC all the way back across. Cut and tie off.

Dream A Dream: Center-Out Crochet Square

Have you had a chance to bump up your crochet skills yet? My tutorial on crocheting from the Center-Out has been live for 2 weeks now. I have seen a few of the Tutorial Squares and I am eager to see what everyone plans to do with a square so small. I think I will have to design more of that size!

The tutorial and this pattern (and all my other patterns) come with written line-by-line instructions and charts for two techniques. Overlay Mosaic Crochet seems to be the most popular. Interlocking Crochet is fun too (and sometimes goes by other names, such as Locked Filet Mesh / LFM)!

This pattern here (called “Dream a Dream”) is a little bit larger than the tutorial square. But it is not an overwhelming size. Plus, to make it more accessible I have created a full video walk-thru for each technique!

9 squares makes a perfect toddler-sized blanket

You don’t NEED to buy the pattern in order to follow along with the video. You can view the Key for the Interlocking Crochet method or the Overlay Mosaic Crochet method here and each row is written on the screen on the video; the charts are only available in the paid PDF. I truly do appreciate each purchase of the PDF pattern!

This square is not a size that easily mixes and matches with my other patterns, but I am sure you will still love it! There are so many things you can do with a square!

The first thing I think of is blankets. You can crochet as many squares as you like and then join them together to make a blanket.

The beauty of this technique and these squares is that you can use any weight yarn (as long as the yarns used are similar to each other in weight) and then an appropriately sized hook.

Just make sure you always have good contrast between the Main Color yarn and the second yarn you use.

If one of your yarns is self-striping you need to make sure the contrast color contrasts well with ALL the colors in the striping yarn.

Pillows (or throw cushions) go well with blankets, especially when you can have a matching set!

Then there are always so many bag options. A simple, small bag with just two squares and a strap is quick to make. Or, using multiple squares, you can create a larger bag.

I’m attempting to create a cardigan from my squares. My toddler really liked it when I had the back panel done – she used it as a blanket for a day!

Front = the right side of your work (you never turn your work, so the right side is always facing you)

AC/MC to Back indicates you need to place the AC/MCyarn towards the BACK of your project

AC/MC to Front indicates you need to bring the AC/MC yarn towards the FRONT of your project

CROCHET STITCHES USED (US terminology)

BLO = use the back loop only

ch = chain: pull a loop of yarn through the loop on your hook

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

hdc = half double crochet: yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull up loop, yarn over, pull through all three loops

MR = magic ring: lay yarn across front of index and middle fingers, loose end hanging down; wrap yarn over and behind fingers then back up the front of your hand; cross yarn over yarn towards your wrist and hold working end of yarn with pinkie finger; insert hook under yarn closest to fingertips, grab the other loop of yarn and pull a loop up (with a slight clockwise twist); chain 1 to hold it together. You will crochet over the side that has 2 strings and when you are done you can tighten the loose end. See my video tutorial or my photo tutorial at ashleeslint.com/magicring

sk = skip a stitch

SS = slip stitch: insert hook, pull a loop through everything on your hook

SPECIAL TERMS USED

Ch3 in Back/Front counts as your first dc and chain

C = Corner: chain 2 (when added to previous stitch that makes 3 chains between the double crochets in each corner)

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

F = double crochet (dc) in front of the previous row, and chain 1

Join = SS to finish the round. This stitch goes into the 2nd chain of the first ch3 of the round, or it can be made into the first window space

INTERLOCKING CROCHET TECHNIQUE

You are creating two layers of mesh that happen to be worked around each other. Each color of yarn gets stitched into itself only. Each double crochet goes into the previous row’s double crochet. There is a chain space between each double crochet that doesn’t get worked into. You alternate using each color of yarn and thus can do the double crochet in front or behind the opposite color’s chain space (never yarn over in a way that it encloses that chain space on both sides). Do not cut your yarn at the end of each round, just use a stitch marker to keep the live loop waiting. Detailed tutorial on this technique in PDF and YouTube video format can be found at https://ashleeslint.com/interlocking-crochet-tutorial-center-out/.

KEY FOR OVERLAY MOSAIC CROCHET

MC = Main Color: blue in chart

CC = Contrasting Color: white in chart

ch = chain: pull a loop through

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

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

MR = magic ring: place yarn across the front of your fingers with the tail hanging down, wrap yarn over and behind your fingers, cross yarn at the top of your hand towards your wrist, insert hook under first loop on the back of your hand and grab the second loop, pull the loop up and chain to keep it in place. View my video tutorial or photo tutorial online: AshleesLint.com/magicring

SPECIAL STITCHES (TAKE NOTE OF THE LOWER CASE VERSUS UPPER CASE WAY OF USING THESE):

sc = SC into Back Loop only

dc = dropped double crochet: DC into Front Loop of stitch in the round below, skip the sc stitch that gets hidden behind this dropped stitch

scC = single crochet corner: SC into Back Loop Only of previous round’s corner chain, chain 1, SC into the same Back Loop again

dcC = double crochet corner: do a dropped DC into front loop of previous round’s corner chain, chain 1, do another dropped DC into same front loop again. The next stitch, if it is a dc, will use this same front loop as well.

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

Mosaic Technique when working from the CENTER-OUT

Technique tutorials: https://ashleeslint.com/overlay-mosaic-crochet-tutorial-center-out/

  • The front of your work is always facing you (this is the right side, the side showing the design)
  • 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)
  • Foundation round counts as round 0 – it is a magic ring with 8 single crochets in it; uses the MC
  • Do not cut your yarn at the end of each round, carry it up through the corner stitch
  • Even-numbered rounds use MC; odd-numbered rounds use CC

Crochet from the Center-Out

Are you ready to take your projects up a notch? I feel like we have just leveled-up on a video game because now we can crochet from the center-out! You may also see others refer to this technique as “from the middle” or “in the round”.

It is not a new technique. Other designers have been doing it for awhile. But it is new for my patterns.

I always offer written line-by-line instructions and charts for my patterns. And all of my patterns (minus a few) are designed for BOTH the interlocking crochet technique and the overlay mosaic crochet technique.

This tutorial is no different.

There are written instructions and charts for both of these tutorials. These tutorials each have a PDF photo tutorial and a YouTube tutorial.

Winter 2021 CAL: LFM Part 5

We are nearly done! Each section has been divided by how many rows fit on the page in the printed PDF. Next week there will be a few less rows simply because of the way the pattern landed naturally on the page. Plus it gives us a bit of extra time for the optional border.

Winter 2021 CAL: Mosaic Part 5

We are nearly done! There are 224 rows in this pattern but next week’s section has less rows than this week’s because we also need time to do that optional envelope border. If you’re skipping that option then you’ll have a slightly easier week next week.

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

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 3

Our Winter 2021 Crochet-A-Long has progressed into 2022. Welcome to the new year! We are already at the half way point; that goes by so quickly. Thank you so much for all the support (sharing about me online, showing us your progress, pattern purchases, etc)!
