Interlocking Crochet™ – Antique Brooch


This is Interlocking Crochet™ and this is the Antique Brooch pattern. This is side one and this is what side two looks like. If you need specific directions on how
to do the technique, please go to InterlockingCrochet.com and look for
written instructions and videos. I’m just going to walk you through
the design. The pattern is based on seven blocks plus
one. So to begin this sample, I have fifteen
blocks. Fifteen times two is thirty plus four for the turning chain means I’ve done a base chain of thirty four stitches. Color B has fourteen blocks so it only has thirty two stitches. Now I’ve put them together. We are on the front side. You’ll know
you’re in the front because it’s got the squared off bottom. My B color has been dropped to the
back. To begin the design I do three front stitches and the
pattern across the row is one back six front one back six front. Until I get to my last five stitches and
this is one back four front. That is the A color. Now with my B color that had been
dropped to the back I do two back stitches and the pattern is two front stitches,
five back. Two front, Five back, until I reach my last five stitches. And now I have two front, Three back. That ends row one. You turn the fabric around and now I’m on side two. On this side pink is my B color and it’s been dropped to the front. I pick up my A color. It’s two back and to begin the pattern three front, four back, three front, four back until I reach my
last six stitches. And then it’s three front, three back to finish that row. Picking up my B color It’s one front, four back, three front, four back, three front, until I’ve reached my last six stitches and it’s four back, two front. Turn the fabric around and we’re on the front side again. This time the dark green is my B color. I pick up my A color. One front and the pattern is two back, one front, two back, two front. You continue across the row and the row
actually ends with the pattern which is two back, one front, two back, two front. Picking up my B color which has been
dropped to the back, it’s two front. Now I begin the pattern across the
row, two back, two front, one back, two front. You continue along two back, two front, one back, two front, until you reach the last five stitches. Then it’s two back, two front, and one back to finish the row. Moving on to row four, we’re on the back again.
you can and you can see the campaign You can see the pattern starting to take shape. I’ve dropped my cream color to the
front. That’s my B color. Picking up my A color, one back, and beginning the pattern across the
row, two front, one back, two front, two back. Continue that across the row,
two front, one back, two front, two back. It actually comes out even to the end of the row, two front, one back, two front, two back. Picking up my B color, I have one front and then the pattern is four back, three front, four back, three front, until you come to
the last six stitches. Now we’ve got four back, two front. That ends off that row. We’re on the front side again and the
pattern is almost complete with row five. The cream color has been dropped to the back again. Beginning with the A color we have two front stitches and the pattern is three back, four front, three back four front. We get to the end of the row and there in the last six stitches we’ll
have three back, three front. Picking up your B color, we have two back stitches and the
pattern begins with two front, five back, two front, five back, until you come across to the last five
stitches. It’s two front, three back to end off that row. Coming to our last row, which is number six. I’m back on the wrong side because of the little pointed ends where the right side has the squared
off edges to it. With this row I’ve got my B color (the red) dropped to the
front and I’ve got my cream color (the A
color) in the back. That is three back stitches and the pattern is one front stitch,
six back stitches, one front stitch, six back stitches, until you come
across to the last five stitches, one front stitch, four back stitches. The B color is worked just front stitches all the way
across the top of the row and the reason for that is you want to make the edge the same as the beginning edge. You keep working the pattern following rows one through six and when you’re finally ready to end off, you turn it over again to the front and you’ll notice this bottom row has a mesh all the way across the top
but if you stop here this one doesn’t so you’re going to have to add a row across the top only on the A color. You’re going to add a row of front stitches all along the top. Just the plain mesh so when you’re finished with this edging, it’s going to match the front edging. So you have the front top edging matching the bottom edging. So no matter how large your panel, you’ll have all the edges matched with a border of mesh all around the edging. If you would like any written
