Moose On Plaid - Locked Filet Mesh (Interlocking) and Mosaic Crochet Buffalo Plaid Throw Blanket Pattern
Digital file type(s): 2 PDF
A few months ago I released a pattern called “Wild and Free Moose” which looked like this but had the quote “stay wild and free” written across it (you can get both the patterns as a bundle on Ravelry).
When I first created the pattern, this was my original design. But I was concerned about the large black space that has no interlocking stitches (not relevant when doing it in the mosaic crochet technique). Since then, I have seen other designers use large spaces (with their interlocking patterns) and I believe it will be ok, so I am now releasing this simple moose on a buffalo plaid background.

- a 1-page chart (no X's),
- the mosaic pattern (including instructions on creating an envelope border).

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. 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: https://linktr.ee/LFMandMosaic

Great crochet pattern. Clearly written, but I prefer the scheme, which is of course also easy to follow. So much fun to do that I actually don't have time to work anymore 😉 Esther
I asked Ashlee to make up a pattern for me of a tiger's head the size of a blanket. She exceeded my expectations to say the least because when she sent me the finished pattern it was breathtaking. What an absolutely beautiful image. I know she worked hard on this pattern for me because her attention for detail doesn't lie. Then I had to crochet it. Well I am new to interlocking style crochet but with this pattern it was made very easy for me. The pattern is all written out row by row in interlocking and mosaic crochet. And of course there is a chart but I never used it. I am very pleased with the results of this tiger blanket from this pattern so pleased that I have to make a white tiger for me!
Really easy to follow pattern. love the results for my first time trying this technique. Cant wait to try more.
This going to be a beautiful blanket! Looks complicated but is not hard to do. Beautiful results.
