Winter 2021

I am so excited to announce another beautiful Crochet-A-Long (CAL)! “Winter 2021” begins on December 21, 2021!

The beauty of online CALs is the ability to join in at anytime! No matter when you start we will be excited to see your project! Share your progress in my Facebook group: Ashlee Brotzell Designs or my Ravelry Group: Ashlee Brotzell Designs or on Instagram using #Winter2021CAL

Like all of my patterns, this pattern is written up for two techniques: interlocking crochet and overlay mosaic crochet. Choose your favorite method or try something new! I have tutorials on both methods.

This CAL has both a paid and a free option. If you’d like the FULL written pattern and charts (the mosaic chart has X’s) in a nice printable PDF you can purchase on Ravelry or Etsy. If you like the FREE option, follow along with me here as I release a new section each week; each technique will be posted on a separate blog entry.

Pre-Release purchase on Ravelry, 50% discount, use code “MILD50” until December 20, 2021.
From December 21-January 31, 2022: 20% discount, valid on Etsy and Ravelry, use code “MILD20


Interlocking Crochet (Locked Filet Mesh / LFM)

This is my favorite method. No bobbins, no cutting, no tails. Two fluffy layers of mesh intertwined.

Finished measurements approximately 53” x 56”
4.5 mm hook (US7)
Worsted weight yarn (3350 – 3425 yards total)
Main color (MC) – 1675 yards plus 75 for optional border
Accent color (AC) – 1675 yards
Gauge: 16 DC x 8 rows = 4”

Links below will go live as scheduled. The FREE version of this CAL does not include charts. To purchase the FULL written pattern and chart scroll up.


Both techniques include instructions on adjusting the width of this blanket. You can make a table runner or scarf or you can make an even larger blanket – that’s completely up to you! Share your progress in my Facebook Group: Ashlee Brotzell Designs (or on any other group that allows it). On Instagram, tag me @AshleesLint or use #Winter2021CAL so we can see all the pretty progress!

Reminder: even though I offer the pattern for free viewing on my blog, that does not give you the rights to share it. Please direct people to come view the pattern here.
