Summer Direction CAL for Overlay Mosaic Crochet

This is my 5th Crochet-A-Long (CAL) since I started designing just over a year ago. My first CAL was some large flower squares for Mother’s Day 2020. Then I did a Father’s Day CAL of scarves that joined together to create a blanket. My third CAL was the Abstract Queen; it was the first one to be available with written instructions for both interlocking and overlay mosaic crochet (before that, the other CALs were just interlocking crochet, but they have been updated since then to include both techniques). A few months ago we did the MusicCAL (which had an easier and smaller repeat section compared to the Abstract Queen CAL). I also contributed to the Friends Around the World 6th Anniversary CAL, but since I didn’t host that one I don’t consider it one of “MY” Crochet-A-Longs.

You can find the links for all my Crochet-A-Longs (CALs) in one place here: https://ashleeslint.com/cals/

All of the images below (showing each of my previous CALs) use the interlocking crochet technique. Overlay Mosaic Crochet will produce the same images but you will have to deal with the tails on the sides from cutting and joining your yarn each row.

My newest CAL, the Summer Direction CAL, like all of my patterns now, is written up for two different techniques: interlocking crochet and overlay mosaic crochet. This CAL has video walk-thrus for both techniques! That’s the big new thing about this pattern. I have also been updating all of my patterns to include charts marked with X’s for mosaic crochet – so this pattern includes those X’s.

You are viewing the landing page for the OVERLAY MOSAIC CROCHET version of the Summer Direction CAL. You may also wish to go to the interlocking crochet landing page. I also pre-released the yardage charts, but those charts are also in this post.

I created a video walk-thru for each section in this Summer Direction CAL! I began in the winter and I figured I would definitely be ready by summer. I know it is nearing the end of August now but IT IS STILL SUMMER! I insist on not living for pumpkin spice yet! Slow down, people!

The written instructions can be found FREE here online (one section released at a time) or you can purchase a nice PDF of the entire pattern (including a plain chart for interlocking and a chart marked with X’s for mosaic as well as links to each YouTube walk-thru for every section) on Etsy or Ravelry.

Summer Direction CAL – Overlay Mosaic Crochet

Before we get started, brush up on your technique! If you’re new to mosaic crochet, you may want to check out my tutorials first! Remember to subscribe to my YouTube channel to get notified when the videos are live! You can also subscribe to my mailing list and / or subscribe directly to the blog (there should be a spot to enter your email in the side bar).

Section 1 – Foundation Rows

The first section is very short. It is aptly called, “Foundation Rows” and we will decide how wide our project is going to be and how much yarn we will need. The YouTube video does not include information on yardage so please see the written portion for that!

Section 2 – Chevron A

This Chevron goes down and then up.

Section 3 – Chevron A

This section is the same thing as the previous section. Your row numbers will be different (your project will be at row 15 but the video and written portion will say row 5) so use some stitch markers to help you keep track!

Section 4 – Dark Arrows

These arrows are solid (of course, you may note, that my mosaic patterns all have these dots in the solid areas – I design first for the interlocking technique and it creates these gaps. I like the way our eyes still see a solid arrow and there are no flaps created by long sections of Dropped Double Crochets). There is a section later on that looks almost the same – however it is actually a reversed or mirrored image.

Section 5 – Chevron A

If you’ve been following the pattern as written, we are now at row 49. However, this section is identical to rows 5-14. Both the video and the written pattern will begin with row 5 and go through row 14. You may wish to use a stitch marker to mark row 49 so that you remember it counts as the beginning of this section.

Section 6 – Chevron B

This chevron differs from Chevron “A” because it goes up and then down instead of down and then up.

Section 7 – Light Arrows

These arrows are hollow, just the outline is drawn. This is our halfway point!

Section 8 – Chevron A

This section is identical to an earlier section so the YouTube video shows rows 5-14 while we are actually crocheting rows 95-104.

Section 9 – Chevron B

These Chevrons mirror the ones we just did in section 8. They are the same as rows 59-70 but we are on rows 105-116.

Section 10 – Dark Arrows Reversed

These look very similar to those dark arrows at the beginning of our project but their direction is actually reversed. Or perhaps a mirror-image is a better way to think of it. Either way, there’s a NEW YouTube video to accompany this section.

Section 11 – Chevron B

You are almost a pro at this crochet stuff by now! If you still need to reference the video please re-watch the section that covers rows 59-70. And, remember, the written portion also says 59-70 even though we are actually on rows 141-150 at this point.

Section 12 – Chevron B

Yes, this section is the same as the section before this. We’ve done this already, so you know what to do: follow the YouTube video for rows 59-70 or follow with the written pattern (our project is now at rows 151-160).

Section 10 – Top Border Lines

We are now finishing off the pattern with the final rows that match the beginning foundation rows. Instructions for a single crochet envelope border are included in the video. A link to a photo tutorial for my lazy double crochet envelope border is at the end of the written instructions.

This space will be updated with each new section release (with a link to the written section online and the YouTube tutorial for that section).

We are all done updating things! That’s the whole pattern – done!


Overlay Mosaic Crochet Pattern

Let’s get started, shall we?

Remember, the written instructions can be found FREE here online or you can purchase a nice PDF of the entire pattern (including the X-marked chart) on Etsy or Ravelry. Get 50% off when you use code, “SUMMER2021” (offer ends 11:59 pm, CST, September 30, 2021).

To create a full-sized blanket, do 9 repeats for the width. You repeat the stitches between the stars as many times as you want. Each repeat will add about 4.5” in width. Each line may have brackets which you repeat the designated number of times, and the stars denote the sections you repeat based on how wide you want your project; like this:

JS, (dc1, sc1) x2, *sc8, dc1, sc1, dc1, sc7*, dc1, sc1, dc1, ES

To expand the brackets, it looks like this: JS, dc1, sc1, dc1, sc1, *sc8, dc1, sc1, dc1, sc7*, dc1, sc1, dc1, ES

For a 2-width repeat, it will look like: JS, (dc1, sc1) x2, sc8, dc1, sc1, dc1, sc7, sc8, dc1, sc1, dc1, sc7, dc1, sc1, dc1, ES

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. A gauge swatch can help with that.

Foundation stitches and repeats, and yarn usage

To figure out how many stitches you start with: (four and nine repeats are just examples, you can use any number of repeats)

Mosaic FoundationSingle widthFour repeatsNine repeats
Finished Size (41” height includes all the sections of the original designs)6.5” x 41”20” x 41”42” x 41”
Chainless SC Foundation Repeats of 18 + 9(1 x 18) + 9 = (18) + 9 = 27(4 x 18) + 9 = (72) + 9 = 81(9 x 18) + 9 = (162) + 9 = 171
Or, chain and SC back Add 1 to the final number above27 + 1 = 2881 + 1 = 82171 + 1 = 172

When determining yardage, I design for two colors: Main Color and Contrasting Color. You could do a gauge swatch to get a more accurate representation of your yarn and personal gauge but if you’d like to use my estimates keep in mind I use a 4.5 mm hook and a thicker worsted weight yarn (4 – medium).

Mosaic YardageSingle widthFour repeatsNine repeats
Yardage Per color = base + repeats60 + (120) = 18060 + (120 x 4) = 54060 + (120 x 9) = 1140
Plus optional envelope border = base + repeats275 + (25) = 300275 + (25 x 4) = 375275 + (25 x 9) = 500
Total Yardage = first line x 2 (for MC and AC), plus optional border180 x 2 = 360 + 300 = 660540 x 2 = 1080 + 375 = 14551140 x 2 = 2280 + 500 = 2780

Important Details

  • US crochet terminology
  • Full blanket chart 169 x 165
  • Single width chart 25 x 165, repeat width 18
  • Full blanket measurements approximately 42” x 41”
  • 4.5 mm hook (US7)
  • Worsted weight yarn (Blanket: 2280-2780 yards)
    • Main color – 1140 yards
    • Contrasting color – 1140 yards
    • Plus optional envelope border – 500 yards
  • Gauge: 16 stitches x 16 rows = 4”

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

Please see the YouTube tutorial for more details. I use a single-row 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

Foundation Row (Row 0): use Main Color (MC) (black on the chart)

Use a chainless SC technique to create repeats of 18 +9 SC. Or, chain repeats of 18 +10, SC in 2nd from hook and all the way back across. Cut and tie off. See the chart with more details.

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

Repeat between the stars 9 times for a blanket.

1 – JS, sc4, *sc18*, sc3, ES

2 – JS, dc1, sc3, *sc18*, sc2, dc1, ES

3 – JS, sc4, *sc18*, sc3, ES

4 – JS, (dc1, sc1) x2, *sc18*, dc1, sc1, dc1, ES

The foundation rows can be a bit boring with all the counting. I apologize. It will be worth it!

FATW6 CAL: Adventures in Mosaic Crochet – Ocean Theme

Good morning, Monday!

It has been so great seeing all the new projects getting started since Thursday when my Mosaic Coral Strip was released as the first section in the Friends Around the World 6th Anniversary CAL (FATW6)!

Mondays and Thursdays will be the release days of a new section – and today is Monday! Remember, all the pieces in this Crochet-A-Long have been designed by different people. The common theme is mosaic crochet and then 3 blankets were compiled from the submissions!

Each section is FREE. Some designers, like me, have included videos. I believe all the sections include a chart and written instructions, but I guess we will have to wait and see if that’s true.

This blog post of mine is going to be where I keep a list of all the sections as they are released. You can bookmark it if you like! You can also sign up for updates from the host: CAL Crochet A Long Facebook group

Also, please feel free to share your progress on this CAL in my Ashlee Brotzell Designs Facebook group. Normally, I don’t allow work by other designers but since this is a group collaboration I am making an exception – I want to see your progress! 🙂

I will link to the official CAL blog entry and you will have to scroll through their post to find the link to that section’s pattern (some are Ravelry downloads, some are on websites; different designers have different ways of doing things).

FATW6: Mosaic Coral Strip

Introduction

This is a pattern for an overlay mosaic crochet strip that belongs in the Friends Around the World 6th Anniversary CAL (FATW6) “Adventures in Mosaic Crochet” hosted by CAL – Crochet A Long. Links to all past and future patterns can be found on their blog: https://calcrochetalong.com and you can join their facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/668646249929007/

My section (this Mosaic Coral Strip) can be found here on the blog (scroll down) or downloaded on Ravelry: https://ravel.me/mosaic-coral-strip

You can also crochet with my YouTube video to guide you! Please note: the video does not show the foundation rows. You can add sections onto each other, but if this is your first section you must start with a foundation row; see my other YouTube tutorial on creating a Mosaic Foundation: https://youtu.be/RqgmJQMaB7A for more information.

When I first designed this piece I didn’t know I would be the first section in the blanket. That’s why my Coral video mentions that you will be joining to a project you already have. But I have created a video on crocheting the foundation rows now!

Quick Bio

I published my first pattern less than a year ago (April 1, 2020) and, honestly, that was a dream come true! My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was about 8 years old, and it has been a favorite hobby of mine in an on-again-off-again kind of way. I finished my first blanket in high school and created a few projects over the years to fit my needs (how about a bag that fits this book exactly and nothing else).

Three years ago, I picked up my hooks in earnest again as a coping method after the traumatic delivery of my son. Crocheting – and now, pattern designing, too – are therapy for me. I am so grateful to everyone who has supported me and made it a little easier to stay at home with my 3 beautiful children.

I was also able to achieve another dream of mine in April 2021: I got published in a magazine! My Eiffel Tower Wall Hanging can be found in Crochet Now! Magazine, issue 68. I feel a little famous now!

The Coral Strip

I love how wiggly and intricate coral can look. It is almost abstract enough that if you didn’t know it was called “Coral” you might just think it was random lines.

My single repeat used 30 g of yarn (Medium 4 – worsted weight, acrylic). I used Caron Kindness in Tomato and Robin’s Egg Blue because it was what I had on hand. Unfortunately, this is a discontinued yarn. You can use any yarn medium (4) weight yarn. If you’d like some suggestions, try Yarnsub.com for a list of similar yarns.

Like the other patterns in this CAL, each repeat is 48 stitches wide. An extra stitch is added at the beginning of each row, and two extra stitches are added to the end. Each designer may have different ways of explaining things but all the pieces in this CAL are designed to work together!

My chart does not show those extra 3 stitches (the joining stitch, balancing stitch, and end stitch), it only shows the repeated section.

Chart is included in the ravelry download

If you share your works on Instagram, I would love for you to tag me: @AshleesLint

YouTube

I created a YouTube video to go with this pattern! You can see each stitch being done and crochet with me! Please note: the Coral video does not show the foundation rows. You can add sections onto each other, but if this is your first section you must start with a foundation row.

Mosaic Coral Strip YouTube Video

Important Details

  • US crochet terminology
  • Chart is 48 x 19, add 1 extra stitch at the beginning of each row and 2 extra stitches at the end of each row. Repeat is 48 + 3 stitches wide.
  • 5 mm hook (H-8)
  • 18 g / 21 yards of Main Color (MC) = coral
  • 12 g / 30 yards of Contrasting Color (CC) = light blue
  • One repeat finishes at 10” x 4” / 26 x 10 cm
  • Gauge: 18 stitches x 18 rows = 4” / 10 cm

Key (US terminology)

MC = Main Color: coral in chart

CC = Contrasting Color: light blue 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

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

Mosaic Technique

Please see the YouTube tutorial for more details. I use a single-row mosaic technique. Each square on the chart corresponds to one stitch. There is an additional stitch (not visible on the chart) on each side of the chart for joining and ending (for this pattern only, add an extra balancing stitch at the end of each row before doing the “ES = end stitch”). You start at the bottom-right corner of the chart.

dc = the dropped DC goes into the same-colored stitch, 2 rows below, front loop only. Skip the (pink) single crochet behind this dc.
sc = a single crochet in the body of this pattern goes into the back loop only
  • 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 (opposite for left-handed crocheters)
  • 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 (unless you want to use them as fringe, like on scarf)
  • 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)
  • Odd-numbered rows use MC (coral), even-numbered rows use CC (light blue)

Optional “Locked Double Crochet”

To prevent the small flaps on the back of your work, consider locking-in your stitch.

Begin like a dropped double crochet: skip the next stitch, and work into the Front Loop of the stitch in the row below; yarn over, insert hook into front loop below (see first image below), pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through two loops, insert hook into back loop of skipped stitch (see second image below), yarn over and pull through all three loops on your hook.

Time to start crocheting!

(There was an error with this blog but it has been fixed! I am so sorry! And majorly embarrassed 🙈)

Row 1 can be your foundation row OR you can add it to another section.

Repeat between *’s as many times as required for your project.

Foundation Row:

Row 1 MC – Can use a chainless single crochet foundation or you can chain the desired number of stitches, plus one for turning chain. Turn, skip turning chain, single crochet into each chain.

Repeats of 48 +3 = desired number of stitches

For example, if you want to repeat the design twice: (48 x 2) + 3 = 99 sc needed (chain 99 + 1 = 100, skip 1 stitch, sc into the rest of the 99)

Or, if you want to repeat the design three times: (48 x 3) + 3 = 147 sc needed (chain 147 + 1 = 148, skip 1 stitch, sc into the rest of the 147)

OR when added to another project:

Interlocking Crochet

Key (US terminology)

AC = accent color (white on chart)

MC = main color (black on chart)

RS = right side: the side of your work that will show the finished design

WS = wrong side: the back of your project

Back = the side not facing you

Front = the side currently facing you

ch = chain

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 twice: yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull up loop, *yarn over, pull through two loops* three times

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

F = double crochet (dc) in front, and 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

ACB = put AC yarn to the side facing away from you

ACF = bring the AC yarn to the side facing you

Hints

Remember, each color is worked into itself only and there is a chain space between each DC.

Don’t confuse RS / WS with Front / Back.

Mosaic Crochet

Key (US terminology)

MC = Main Color: black 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

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

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

Technique

  • 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 (opposite for left-handed crocheters)
  • 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 (unless you want to use them as fringe, like on scarf)
  • 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)
  • 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 Crochet

Key (US terminology)

AC = accent color (white on chart)

MC = main color (black on chart)

RS = right side: the side of your work that will show the finished design

WS = wrong side: the back of your project

Back = the side not facing you

Front = the side currently facing you

ch = chain

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

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

F = double crochet (dc) in front, and 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

ACB = put AC yarn to the side facing away from you

ACF = bring the AC yarn to the side facing you

Hints

Remember, each color is worked into itself only and there is a chain space between each DC.

Don’t confuse RS / WS with Front / Back.

Part 7 in interlocking crochet complete

See you next week for the next section of the pattern!

~*~*~*~*~ Or, begin here if you’re using the overlay mosaic technique! ~*~*~*~*~

This mosaic blanket is getting some strange color combos but here is my treble clef

Mosaic Crochet

Key (US terminology)

MC = Main Color: black 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

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

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

Technique

  • 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 (opposite for left-handed crocheters)
  • 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 (unless you want to use them as fringe, like on scarf)
  • 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)
  • 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

MusicCal 6: Headphones Section

Honestly, this was the most boring section to crochet. Too many repeats for my liking. But perhaps that will make it quick for some of you! We are nearing the end of my MusicCAL 2021 (Crochet-A-Long) and I sure do enjoy seeing your progress in my Facebook group!

This post includes the interlocking pattern and the overlay mosaic pattern (click to skip ahead to the patterns). If you’re new to these techniques, check out my tutorials on YouTube!

Join in at any time! Share your progress in my Ravelry group, or in my Facebook group, or tag me on Instagram @ashleeslint and use hashtag #MusicCAL21

The free pattern begins here and a new section will be released each week. If you’d prefer, you can grab the FULL pattern (with a chart!) on Ravelry or Etsy. Get 20% off for the duration of this CAL (no code required, add to cart to see the discount, expires June 24, 2021).

Interlocking Crochet

Key (US terminology)

AC = accent color (white on chart)

MC = main color (black on chart)

RS = right side: the side of your work that will show the finished design

WS = wrong side: the back of your project

Back = the side not facing you

Front = the side currently facing you

ch = chain

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

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

F = double crochet (dc) in front, and 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

ACB = put AC yarn to the side facing away from you

ACF = bring the AC yarn to the side facing you

Hints

Remember, each color is worked into itself only and there is a chain space between each DC.

Don’t confuse RS / WS with Front / Back.

Part 6 in interlocking crochet complete, another divider section is included in the written pattern here but not shown in the image

See you next week for the next section of the pattern!

~*~*~*~*~ Or, begin here if you’re using the overlay mosaic technique! ~*~*~*~*~

If you are changing colors for each section you actually need to change colors 2 rows before the sectiom starts. The sections are divided to make each part look finished, not in anticipation of changing colors. I will anticipate better in my next CAL 😉

Mosaic Crochet

Key (US terminology)

MC = Main Color: black 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

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

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

Technique

  • 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 (opposite for left-handed crocheters)
  • 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 (unless you want to use them as fringe, like on scarf)
  • 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)
  • 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

National Zoo & Aquarium Blog Hop

You can ignore this post if you’re not interested in free crochet patterns. 😉

One thing I have enjoyed about being a crochet designer this year is “meeting” (online) other designers. A year ago I probably could have named one or two designers, and I honestly barely considered the fact that a real human-person was creating the patterns found online.

I mostly made up my own stuff as needed or, on the rare occasion that I wanted to make something specific I would search the web for a free pattern.

Today, I want to introduce you to a whole bunch of designers! My Fingers Fly has just started a blog-hop of FREE animal patterns!

This is the first day of a MONTH of free patterns! Each day she will be showcasing up to 8 patterns (over 80 patterns for the month)! Some of the patterns are always free, some are only free for a limited time on their special day.

The designers involved in this blog-hop are:

MusicCal 5: Piano Section

This is the shortest section of my MusicCAL 2021 (Crochet-A-Long). So far, each week has included a divider section and then the musical design. This week, because the piano is so small, I am adding the next divider section at the end as well.

But, WHY is the piano so small? It is really a cropped version of a keyboard. I also had to make one key slightly wider than the others to fit into the repeating window properly. This was one of those sections that was supposed to be so simple but really gave me grief and I considered omitting it altogether. I was also concerned about copyright issues – there are a few keyboards out there and there’s really only so many ways you can draw it. So, this is just my version that fits in this CAL.

I was going to try crocheting a scarf from this section (by omitting the border design and repeating it until it was as long as a scarf). But I was so focused on finishing my Monstera Leaf blanket that I just didn’t manage to add another project into my list this week.

This post includes the interlocking pattern and the overlay mosaic pattern (click to skip ahead to the patterns). If you’re new to these techniques, check out my tutorials on YouTube!

Interlocking Crochet

Key (US terminology)

AC = accent color (white on chart)

MC = main color (black on chart)

RS = right side: the side of your work that will show the finished design

WS = wrong side: the back of your project

Back = the side not facing you

Front = the side currently facing you

ch = chain

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

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

F = double crochet (dc) in front, and 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

ACB = put AC yarn to the side facing away from you

ACF = bring the AC yarn to the side facing you

Hints

Remember, each color is worked into itself only and there is a chain space between each DC.

Don’t confuse RS / WS with Front / Back.

Continue from where we left off last week.

Piano Section in interlocking crochet; I added another divider section to the pattern here which will be visible in next week’s photo

See you next week for the next section of the pattern!

~*~*~*~*~ Or, begin here if you’re using the overlay mosaic technique! ~*~*~*~*~

Finished the piano section on my mosaic version of the MusicCAL (oops, made a mistake in the divider section)

Mosaic Crochet

Key (US terminology)

MC = Main Color: black 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

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

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

Technique

  • 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 (opposite for left-handed crocheters)
  • 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 (unless you want to use them as fringe, like on scarf)
  • 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)
  • 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

MusicCal 4: Boom Box Section

At the end of this section we will be halfway through the MusicCAL 2021 (Crochet-A-Long)! It has been a busy week for me: I published three new patterns! Magic Decanter, GoldieLux 40, and The Paw 20. The Paw 20 is FREE to everyone who has purchased Live Laugh Love Paws!

This is our 4th section of the MusicCAL: the Boom Box section! I know some of you are surprised at the eclectic variation of music-themed designs in one blanket.

Part 3 in interlocking crochet complete

See you next week for the next section of the pattern!

Mosaic version, finished the boom box section

~*~*~*~*~ Or, begin here if you’re using the overlay mosaic technique! ~*~*~*~*~

Mosaic Crochet

Key (US terminology)

MC = Main Color: black 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

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

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

Technique

  • 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 (opposite for left-handed crocheters)
  • 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 (unless you want to use them as fringe, like on scarf)
  • 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)
  • 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
