Creating A Chart on YouTube Live

I just finished a live video on YouTube where I showed you how I create my charts!

I go over the interlocking crochet charts and the overlay mosaic crochet charts. I even show you the computer program I use.

I hope you will find it informative and helpful if you’re trying to create your own charts. And if you’d prefer to just buy ones that I design, that’s ok with me too! haha!

Honestly, I believe there is room in this world for everyone’s art! Everyone needs to be creative, just like we need food and air and water. Some people like to create with dirt and growing green things, others use canvas and paints; I use a computer and yarn.

This blog post does not have the same information as the YouTube video. I have simply added a few photos and a downloadable empty chart that you are free to use.

Interlocking Crochet

This is the chart I drew live. It is on a very tiny paper. The grid is 21 x 21 which makes it a 10-window square.

If you’d like to try designing your own, you can download this empty 20-window square. The border lines and the mesh dots are already on there. Technically there are other ways of doing the border lines that allows you to lock the layers together (or not, that is an option too!) but this is how I start all of my patterns. This chart size is 41 x 41. I cut it to get the small grid we used in the live video.

Remember, the mesh dots are not changeable. The white squares are where you can decide if it is going to be blue (the Main Color, the first color, the larger layer) or pink (the inner layer, the Accent Color). Each white square must be filled in – but in my mind they default to pink.

Obviously you can use any yarn color you want, this is just how I have my charts set up when I create a new design.

Using the Chart

After you’ve drawn the chart you’ll need to be able to read it. Please see my tutorials:

Overlay Mosaic Crochet

You don’t have to start with mesh dots on your chart if you’re doing overlay mosaic crochet. I start with the mesh dots because all of my patterns are for both techniques. I despeckle the chart for the mosaic version (older patterns were not despeckled) but you can also start fresh if you’d prefer. I drew this very exciting chart on the live video (that’s sarcasm).

You alternate colors for each row, and if you imagine the “blank canvas” as many rows of SC in BLO (Single Crochet in the Back Loop Only), you can then add a dropped DC (double crochet, US terms) to create the design. You cannot crochet your dropped DC into the other color’s DC. X’s go at the top of each DC.

This is a very basic explanation of how to create a chart, but if you get familiar with the stitches I think this is actually all the information you need! If it doesn’t make sense, don’t worry, maybe our brains just work a bit differently and someone else will explain it in a way that makes sense to you.

Try, try, try again!

Programs

Inevitably, someone will ask what program I use. It’s not a secret, I have mentioned it a few times. I prefer to use Winstitch. I started with graph paper and a pen, tried excel and Stitch Fiddle, but I am comfortable with Winstitch now and don’t want to learn any more programs.

Winstitch is a cross stitch program. It starts with a grid. I created a motif of the blue and pink dots that I use multiple times for every pattern. The computer program gives me the stitch counts – quick, and no human error! But the exported information is not what I’d consider usable for a pattern, so I created over 900 pages of Microsoft Word macros and I copy and paste the information from the Winstitch export into Word and then do a bunch of editing to make a pattern for sale.

Winstitch also does not “do” mosaic crochet. But I create a bunch of files and copy and paste things together to get the stitch counts. For my more recent patterns I adjust the charts to remove the mesh dots before creating the mosaic pattern.

If you’re going to try creating your own patterns for sale, please remember that you can’t use copyrighted or trademarked material. People expect to see a key or some sort of explanation as to how they are to use whatever information you are giving them. And page numbers plus the pattern name in the header can really help make your pattern more user-friendly.

A few months ago I offered my pattern keys to anyone. You can use them as a starting place and edit as you see fit. Copy and paste them from this post I wrote about Copyright. I would suggest you also include some sort of copyright statement in your patterns. Again, you can use my statement, just make sure you edit it to have your name instead of mine!

Blooming Owl Wall Hanging

My musical husband has a guitar strap on his classical wooden guitar with these floral motifs. Everytime I see it I think of an owl.

Obviously I couldn’t just draw it as it is, but I think I captured the idea of a flowery owl in my newest wall hanging: Blooming Owl.

My husband loves it!

I used fingering weight yarn. This is also called 4-ply or 8/4 depending on where you live. Craft Council lists it as a weight 1 – super fine and states it can also be called sock yarn.

The black yarn is “110 Jet Black” Scheepjes Catona. It is 100% mercerized cotton. The small balls are only 50 grams and have 125 metres of yarn. Scheepjes suggests a 2.5 – 3.5 mm needle (I believe that specifically refers to knitting needles). I used a 2.5 mm crochet hook.

I used a full 2 balls. There was barely anything left over (see photo below). So, make sure you match my gauge or grab an extra skein. If you’re going to grab an extra one you might as well grab two! 😉

The gold yarn is actually called “Copper” (oops, it is called “Ginger”). It is from SweetGeorgia Yarns’ Tough Love Sock Yarn line. We looked online at YarnCanada.ca and I gave Mitch a few options. He said this color was “it” and he didn’t care that it was also the most expensive.

It comes in a twisted hank of 115 grams which gives you 425 yards of soft, silky wool. I only used half the skein.

It cost me $3.65 CAD per ball of Catona, so $7.30 total (but I did buy a 3rd ball just in case). The Tough Love Sock yarn was $33.95 but I only used half, so it cost me about $17 for this project. It felt really expensive to buy the fancy color Mitch wanted but it was so worth it because this is just beautiful to look at.

It was my first time using my fancy yarn swift! It is fun having toys! This is one of the more expensive things I own (related to yarn crafts). I don’t usually buy yarn that comes twisted because it just gets all tangled up. This was easy to set up and I turned the hank into a cake in a few short minutes!

The “Tough Love Sock Yarn” is 80% merino wool with 20% polyamide. Because it is a hand-dyed yarn it gives my finished piece a sort of mottled look where the dying process created slightly different shades in the yarn.

Like all of my patterns, this pattern is written for my two favorite techniques: interlocking crochet and overlay mosaic crochet. You can choose to use your favorite method or you can try something new!

I used the mosaic method because I wanted the fringe on the bottom and I wanted to use the strings at the top to attach the wooden dowel. I created a short YouTube tutorial with some tricks for attaching the dowel.

YouTube tutorial: Adding a Dowel

If you use interlocking crochet for your project you can add fringe to the bottom and whipstitch the dowel to the top. Instructions are included in the PDF pattern.

Both techniques work the design starting at the top-right corner going down to the bottom-right corner. I designed it to sideways because of the mosaic fringe.

The PDF includes written line-by-line instructions for both techniques and two charts; one is marked with x’s for overlay mosaic crochet. I haven’t created a YouTube video on how to use the x-marked charts yet. I have only just started updating my patterns to include a marked chart.

The other chart can be used for both techniques and I have tutorials on YouTube for that!

Doctor Who: Are You My Mummy?

I thought I was done with this series, but I think I won’t ever truly be done lol There’s always more I could add! You will have to pick and choose your favorites.

The chart can be used for both interlocking and mosaic crochet (and probably other crafts too). The written instructions for both are below, click on the word in the previous sentence to be taken to that part of this blog entry.

The Locked Filet Mesh (LFM) interlocking crochet method uses only chain spaces and double crochets to create a mesh; two colors are worked alternately which creates the pattern.

Mosaic crochet is single crochet and double crochet stitches. The double crochet stitches cover some of the other color’s single crochet stitches to create the design. My patterns instruct you to cut your yarn at the end of each row.

See my other posts for tutorials on both techniques.

Interlocking Crochet Pattern (Locked Filet Mesh / LFM)

Important Details

  • US crochet terminology
  • Chart is 81 x 81 = 6,561 stitches
  • Finished size approximately 20” x 20”
  • 4.5 mm hook (US7)
  • Worsted weight yarn (480 yards total)
    • Main color (MC) – 230 yards plus 20 for optional border (grey on chart)
    • Accent color (AC) – 230 yards (black on chart)
  • Gauge: 4 DC x 2 rows = 1”

Key

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

Foundation Rows (41 MC stitches / 40 AC stitches)

  1. Using MC create 40 windows. I prefer the chainless technique using triple/treble crochet but alternatively you can Ch 81 + 3 (or 4 if you chain tighter than me), then DC in 6th (or 7th) Ch 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 81 +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) and pull the tail of your AC through the window on the right end (see picture by the Key). DC through the back of the next window into the 6th (or 7th) Ch from your hook.
  3. *Ch 1, Sk 1, DC through back* repeat to end. Place stitch marker so your work doesn’t unravel. Both stitch markers should be on the same end.

Notes:

  • 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: use Main Color (MC)

Use a chainless SC technique to create 81 +2 SC. Or, chain 81 +3, SC in 2nd from hook and all the way back across. Cut and tie off.

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

Doctor Who: Tardis Banner

This is called “Tardis Banner” to differentiate between the small square called “Tardis 20”. The first and last squares I’m making in my Doctor Who series both show the Tardis: the iconic image that makes us feel geeky and excited!

The chart can be used for both interlocking and mosaic crochet (and probably other crafts too). The written instructions for both are below, click on the word in the previous sentence to be taken to that part of this blog entry.

The Locked Filet Mesh (LFM) interlocking crochet method uses only chain spaces and double crochets to create a mesh; two colors are worked alternately which creates the pattern.

Mosaic crochet is single crochet and double crochet stitches. The double crochet stitches cover some of the other color’s single crochet stitches to create the design. My patterns instruct you to cut your yarn at the end of each row.

See my other posts for tutorials on both techniques.

Interlocking Crochet Pattern (Locked Filet Mesh / LFM)

Important Details

  • US crochet terminology
  • Chart is 81 x 121 = 9,801 stitches
  • Finished size approximately 20” x 30”
  • 4.5 mm hook (US7)
  • Worsted weight yarn (720 yards total)
    • Main color (MC) – 350 yards plus 20 for optional border
    • Accent color (AC) – 350 yards
  • Gauge: 4 DC x 2 rows = 1”

Key

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

Foundation Rows (41 MC stitches / 40 AC stitches)

  1. Using MC create 40 windows. I prefer the chainless technique using triple/treble crochet but alternatively you can Ch 81 + 3 (or 4 if you chain tighter than me), then DC in 6th (or 7th) Ch 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 81 +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) and pull the tail of your AC through the window on the right end (see picture by the Key). DC through the back of the next window into the 6th (or 7th) Ch from your hook.
  3. *Ch 1, Sk 1, DC through back* repeat to end. Place stitch marker so your work doesn’t unravel. Both stitch markers should be on the same end.

Mosaic Crochet

Important Details

  • US crochet terminology
  • Chart is 81 x 121 = 9,801 stitches
  • Finished size approximately 20” x 30”
  • 4.5 mm hook (US7)
  • Worsted weight yarn (790 yards)
    • Main color – 395 yards
    • Contrasting color – 395 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

Notes:

  • 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: use Main Color (MC) (black on the chart)

Use a chainless SC technique to create 81 +2 SC. Or, chain 81 +3, SC in 2nd from hook and all the way back across. Cut and tie off.

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

Doctor Who: Sonic Screwdriver

I’m not enough of a fan to know which doctor this screwdriver belongs to. It might not belong to any, I suppose. It is my version of something that looks high tech and gadgety. It probably still won’t work on wood, though. It is a very narrow and tall addition to the Doctor Who series.

The chart can be used for both interlocking and mosaic crochet (and probably other crafts too). The written instructions for both are below, click on the link in the previous sentence to be taken to that part of this blog entry.

NEW: You can download the FREE PDF directly from my website by clicking the buttons below. Choose which technique you want to use and you’ll get a file that includes the written pattern and chart.

I have a complete video walk-thru on YouTube for the interlocking version of this pattern.

The Locked Filet Mesh (LFM) interlocking crochet method uses only chain spaces and double crochets to create a mesh; two colors are worked alternately which creates the pattern.

Mosaic crochet is single crochet and double crochet stitches. The double crochet stitches cover some of the other color’s single crochet stitches to create the design. My patterns instruct you to cut your yarn at the end of each row.

See my other posts for tutorials on both techniques.

Random sidenote: I linked my project on Ravelry to the Tardis 20 square because the Sonic Screwdriver isn’t available on Ravelry.

Interlocking Crochet Pattern (Locked Filet Mesh / LFM)

Important Details

  • US crochet terminology
  • Chart is 41 x 121 = 4,961 stitches
  • Finished measurements, about 10” x 30”
  • 4.5 mm hook (US7)
  • Worsted weight yarn (365 yards total)
    • Main color (MC) – 175 yards plus 15 for optional border
    • Accent color (AC) – 175 yards
  • Gauge: 4 DC x 2 rows = 1”

Key

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

Foundation Rows (21 MC stitches / 20 AC stitches)

  1. Using MC create 20 windows. I prefer the chainless technique using triple/treble crochet but alternatively you can Ch 41 + 3 (or 4 if you chain tighter than me), then DC in 6th (or 7th) Ch 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 41 +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) and pull the tail of your AC through the window on the right end (see picture by the Key). DC through the back of the next window into the 6th (or 7th) Ch from your hook.
  3. *Ch 1, Sk 1, DC through back* repeat to end. Place stitch marker so your work doesn’t unravel. Both stitch markers should be on the same end.

Mosaic Crochet

Important Details

  • US crochet terminology
  • Chart is 41 x 121 = 4,961 stitches
  • Finished measurements, about 10” x 30”
  • 4.5 mm hook (US7)
  • Worsted weight yarn (400 yards)
    • Main color – 200 yards
    • Contrasting color – 200 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: insert hook, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through both loops
sc = SC into Back Loop only
DC = double crochet: yarn over, insert hook, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through two loops, yarn over, pull through two loops
dc = DC into Front Loop of stitch, 2 rows below
JS = Joining Stitch / Standing SC: create slip knot, insert hook under both loops, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through both loops
ES = End Stitch: SC under both loops, CH 1, cut yarn and pull through tightly

Notes:

  • 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: use Main Color (MC) (black on the chart)

Use a chainless SC technique to create 41 +2 SC. Or, chain 81 +3, SC in 2nd from hook and all the way back across. Cut and tie off.

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

Doctor Who: Random Bowtie

This barely fits in the Dr Who category and it is a very strange size. But bowties say Doctor Who to me, so I’ve tagged it as part of that series.

Why did I make such a random piece? Someone requested a full bowtie from my Father’s Day CAL – the bowtie scarf uses this motif but it is cropped. They are using the chart to insert a bowtie into a garment they are making! I can’t wait to see it.

You can buy a printable PDF if you like. It also includes a nicer chart to work from.

Random Bowtie in Interlocking and Mosaic Crochet

You will receive an ad-free, printable PDF of this pattern. It includes the written pattern and a chart for interlocking crochet and then the written pattern and x-marked chart for overlay mosaic crochet.

CA$3.00

The chart can be used for both interlocking and mosaic crochet (and probably other crafts too). The written instructions for both are below, click on the word in the previous sentence to be taken to that part of this blog entry.

The Locked Filet Mesh (LFM) interlocking crochet method uses only chain spaces and double crochets to create a mesh; two colors are worked alternately which creates the pattern.

Mosaic crochet is single crochet and double crochet stitches. The double crochet stitches cover some of the other color’s single crochet stitches to create the design. My patterns instruct you to cut your yarn at the end of each row.

See my other posts for tutorials on both techniques.

Interlocking Crochet Pattern (Locked Filet Mesh / LFM)

Important Details

  • Pattern is in US crochet terminology
  • Finished Size: 24” x 13”
  • Chart size 97 x 53 = 5,141 stitches
  • 4.5 mm hook (US7)
  • Worsted weight yarn (375 yards total)
    • Main color (MC) – 180 yards plus 15 for optional border
    • Accent color (AC) – 180 yards
  • Gauge: 4 DC x 2 rows = 1”

Key

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

Foundation Rows (49 MC stitches / 48 AC stitches)

  1. Using MC create 48 windows. I prefer the chainless technique using triple/treble crochet but alternatively you can Ch 97 + 3 (or 4 if you chain tighter than me), then DC in 6th (or 7th) Ch 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 97 +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) and pull the tail of your AC through the window on the right end (see picture by the Key). DC through the back of the next window into the 6th (or 7th) Ch from your hook.
  3. *Ch 1, Sk 1, DC through back* repeat to end. Place stitch marker so your work doesn’t unravel. Both stitch markers should be on the same end.

Mosaic Crochet

Important Details

  • US crochet terminology
  • Chart is 97 x 53 = 5,141 stitches
  • Finished size approximately 24” x 13”
  • 4.5 mm hook (US7)
  • Worsted weight yarn (410 yards)
    • Main color – 205 yards
    • Contrasting color – 205 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

Notes:

  • 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: use Main Color (MC) (black on the chart)

Use a chainless SC technique to create 97 +2 SC. Or, chain 97 +3, SC in 2nd from hook and all the way back across. Cut and tie off.

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

Doctor Who: Silence Marks

This little square did not require a lot of talent to draw lol but I think it is a nice addition to the Dr Who set.

The chart can be used for both interlocking and mosaic crochet (and probably other crafts too). The written instructions for both are below, click on the word in the previous sentence to be taken to that part of this blog entry.

The Locked Filet Mesh (LFM) interlocking crochet method uses only chain spaces and double crochets to create a mesh; two colors are worked alternately which creates the pattern.

Mosaic crochet is single crochet and double crochet stitches. The double crochet stitches cover some of the other color’s single crochet stitches to create the design. My patterns instruct you to cut your yarn at the end of each row.

See my other posts for tutorials on both techniques.

Interlocking Crochet Pattern (Locked Filet Mesh / LFM)

Important Details

  • US crochet terminology
  • Chart is 41 x 41 = 1,681 stitches
  • Finished size approximately 10” x 10”
  • 4.5 mm hook (US7)
  • Worsted weight yarn (130 yards total)
    • Main color (MC) – 60 yards plus 10 for optional border
    • Accent color (AC) – 60 yards
  • Gauge: 4 DC x 2 rows = 1”

Key

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

Foundation Rows (21 MC stitches / 20 AC stitches)

  1. Using MC create 20 windows. I prefer the chainless technique using triple/treble crochet but alternatively you can Ch 41 + 3 (or 4 if you chain tighter than me), then DC in 6th (or 7th) Ch 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 41 +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) and pull the tail of your AC through the window on the right end (see picture by the Key). DC through the back of the next window into the 6th (or 7th) Ch from your hook.
  3. *Ch 1, Sk 1, DC through back* repeat to end. Place stitch marker so your work doesn’t unravel. Both stitch markers should be on the same end.

Mosaic Crochet

Important Details

  • US crochet terminology
  • Chart is 41 x 41 = 1,681 stitches
  • Finished size approximately 10” x 10”
  • 4.5 mm hook (US7)
  • Worsted weight yarn (140 yards)
    • Main color – 70 yards
    • Contrasting color – 70 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: insert hook, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through both loops
sc = SC into Back Loop only
DC = double crochet: yarn over, insert hook, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through two loops, yarn over, pull through two loops
dc = DC into Front Loop of stitch, 2 rows below
JS = Joining Stitch / Standing SC: create slip knot, insert hook under both loops, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through both loops
ES = End Stitch: SC under both loops, CH 1, cut yarn and pull through tightly

Notes:

  • 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: use Main Color (MC) (black on the chart)

Use a chainless SC technique to create 41 +2 SC. Or, chain 81 +3, SC in 2nd from hook and all the way back across. Cut and tie off.

When I published this to Ravelry, I got a few comments right away.

“This is too funny! Hahahahaha Thank you for making this” -Hey4Horses

“Ha! love it thank you for the smile:))” -psyphr

These comments really made my day! This little square IS amusing! And a little creepy haha. My husband does the creeped out shiver everytime he sees it.

Key

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

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

Foundation Rows (21 MC stitches / 20 AC stitches)

  1. Using MC create 20 windows. I prefer the chainless technique using triple/treble crochet but alternatively you can Ch 41 + 3 (or 4 if you chain tighter than me), then DC in 6th (or 7th) Ch 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 41 +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) and pull the tail of your AC through the window on the right end (see picture by the Key). DC through the back of the next window into the 6th (or 7th) Ch from your hook.
  3. *Ch 1, Sk 1, DC through back* repeat to end. Place stitch marker so your work doesn’t unravel. Both stitch markers should be on the same end.

Mosaic Crochet

Important Details

  • US crochet terminology
  • Chart is 81 x 81 = 6,561 stitches
  • Finished size approximately 20” x 20”
  • 4.5 mm hook (US7)
  • Worsted weight yarn (550 yards)
    • Main color – 275 yards
    • Contrasting color – 275 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: insert hook, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through both loops
sc = SC into Back Loop only
DC = double crochet: yarn over, insert hook, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through two loops, yarn over, pull through two loops
dc = DC into Front Loop of stitch, 2 rows below
JS = Joining Stitch / Standing SC: create slip knot, insert hook under both loops, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through both loops
ES = End Stitch: SC under both loops, CH 1, cut yarn and pull through tightly

Notes:

  • 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: use Main Color (MC) (grey on the chart)

Use a chainless SC technique to create 81 +2 SC. Or, chain 81 +3, SC in 2nd from hook and all the way back across. Cut and tie off.

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

Doctor Who: K9

The angles on a robot dog are hard to draw! This companion to the doctor isn’t in a lot of the new episodes so I am not overly familiar with him, but classic Doctor Who fans will be happy to see him!

The chart can be used for both interlocking and mosaic crochet (and probably other crafts too). The written instructions for both are below, click on the word in the previous sentence to be taken to that part of this blog entry.

Errata update Feb 16, 2021: in the mosaic version, rows 11 and 45 had “dc3” which is not correct, both instances should say “dc1, sc1, dc1” and have been corrected below.

The Locked Filet Mesh (LFM) interlocking crochet method uses only chain spaces and double crochets to create a mesh; two colors are worked alternately which creates the pattern.

Mosaic crochet is single crochet and double crochet stitches. The double crochet stitches cover some of the other color’s single crochet stitches to create the design. My patterns instruct you to cut your yarn at the end of each row.

See my other posts for tutorials on both techniques.

Interlocking Crochet Pattern (Locked Filet Mesh / LFM)

Important Details

  • US crochet terminology
  • Chart is 81 x 81 = 6,561 stitches
  • Finished size approximately 20” x 20”
  • 4.5 mm hook (US7)
  • Worsted weight yarn (480 yards total)
    • Main color (MC) – 230 yards plus 20 for optional border
    • Accent color (AC) – 230 yards
  • Gauge: 4 DC x 2 rows = 1”

Key

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

Foundation Rows (41 MC stitches / 40 AC stitches)

  1. Using MC create 40 windows. I prefer the chainless technique using triple/treble crochet but alternatively you can Ch 81 + 3 (or 4 if you chain tighter than me), then DC in 6th (or 7th) Ch 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 81 +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) and pull the tail of your AC through the window on the right end (see picture by the Key). DC through the back of the next window into the 6th (or 7th) Ch from your hook.
  3. *Ch 1, Sk 1, DC through back* repeat to end. Place stitch marker so your work doesn’t unravel. Both stitch markers should be on the same end.

Mosaic Crochet

Important Details

  • US crochet terminology
  • Chart is 81 x 81 = 6,561 stitches
  • Finished size approximately 20” x 20”
  • 4.5 mm hook (US7)
  • Worsted weight yarn (550 yards)
    • Main color – 275 yards
    • Contrasting color – 275 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

Notes:

  • 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: use Main Color (MC) (black on the chart)

Use a chainless SC technique to create 81 +2 SC. Or, chain 81 +3, SC in 2nd from hook and all the way back across. Cut and tie off.

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