Crochet Pattern: Blooming Owl Wall Hanging - Interlocking (Locked Filet Mesh / LFM) and Overlay Mosaic; written instructions and chart
Digital file type(s): 2 PDF
My husband has a guitar strap that always makes me think of owls. I crocheted my sample using the overlay mosaic technique, but like all of my patterns, this pattern is written up for two techniques and you can choose which one to use!
**You will receive one file containing:**
- the interlocking pattern (including instructions for adding fringe and attaching a dowel)
- a one-page chart
and a second file containing:
- the overlay mosaic pattern (including instructions for attaching a dowel)
- a multi-page chart marked with X's
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 uses 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. The back is striped but often gives a faint impression of the pattern on the front (sort of like illusion knitting).
I have YouTube tutorials available for both crochet methods! Follow this link to get to my YouTube channel and find my other social links: linktr.ee/LFMandMosaic

The finished project looks great. Directions were easy enough to follow, although it took me a few rows and a lot of patience to get the hang of mosaic crochet.
I'm in love with this pattern and mosaic crochet. Just started and I know it's going to take awhile but this one is for me! Post pics when done
The pattern is very well written. I am halfway finished making this blanket and it will not be my last one. It’s beautiful!
