HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?


How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.

The design is anything but boring, featuring the Mosaic Crochet Technique, but it’s easier than it looks!

NOTES: 


  • This crochet pattern is written in US terms (more details).
  • All measurements given are unblocked.
  • Note that measurements are given as exact as possible. But crochet tension & technique might give variations in the result, that changes from person to person.

 

  • Read pattern instructions carefully before beginning to make sure you understand everything. It might save you hours!
  • Make a swatch that measure at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch the gauge is given for. If your swatch matches the gauge, you’re good to go. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your hook. Go up in crochet hook size if your stitches are smaller & go down in crochet hook size if your stitches are bigger (more details).
  • Check yarn info if you want to find an alternative or test your yarn against the gauge (more details).

 

  • This pattern is written for 1 size, however size adjustments are suggested under the heading “Size & Measurements”.
  • At the end of each round, the stitch count is given in parenthesis.
  • At the beginning of each round, work your first stitch into the first stitch, without starting chains. This will be the in same stitch as the stitch you made your sl st at the end of the previous round if the first stitch is a BLsc.

ABBREVIATIONS:


BL = back loop

BLsc = back loop single crochet

CA = color A

CB = color B

FSC = foundation single crochet

Ldc = long double crochet (worked 2 rounds below in front loop)

sl st = slip stitch (tutorial)

st = stitch (es)

 

TECHNIQUES YOU WILL NEED: 


CROCHETING IN THE FRONT AND BACK LOOP:

This means that you will not crochet through the whole stitch as usual. A typical stitch contains two loops. One in the front, nearest you, and another stitch in the back, furthest away from you. One is called the front loop (the one nearest you), the other one the back loop, the one furthest away from you.

For this pattern you will crochet double crochet stitches through the front loop & single crochet stitches (BLsc) through the back loop.

 

MOSAIC CROCHET: 

To crochet this pattern you will use the mosaic crochet technique, following these 3 simple rules

  1. You will use color A & color B every other row.
  2. All single crochet stitches are worked in the back loop. 
  3. All double crochet stitches (long double crochet/ Ldc) are worked 2 rounds below in the front loop & this front loop are always the same color as the one you’re working with.

 

READ THE MOSAIC COLOR CHART:

To crochet this pattern you can choose to follow the mosaic crochet chart (starting on row 2), following these rules:

  • Read from the bottom up, from right to left. 
  • The color for the round you are going to work are given to the left with letters A and B. 
  • The colors in the diagram itself shows how it will look, but don’t pay too much attention to it when working each round. Rather…
  • Crochet single crochet for each empty box, and long double crochet for each box with an “X”.
