Welcome to daisyknots New Beginnings Make ALong - 2022
The make along started on the 10th August 2022 and runs until 30th September 2022. The pattern is available to purchase from my webshop or Ravelry store and the MAL is hosted at daisyknots mosaic community on Facebook and this is the place where you can post all the pics of your progress, chat about the pattern and have your questions and queries answered.
For the first time I am making a version along with you too and I am having a fab time sharing the making of my throw with you.
Do come and join us, you are most welcome and I love to see how everyone is getting on making their own New Beginnings
New Beginnings is a gorgeous overlay mosaic crochet design written in UK terms. There are comprehensive pattern notes, user friendly charts with associated keys and full written instructions for Motif Block A and Motif Block B each of which are 65 rows by 60 stitches. There are also five different tapestry mosaic charts included with the pattern, which allow for many, many variations to be made. Also included with the pattern is a link to download an extra file showing 19 different mockups which use and combine the different tapestry mosaic sections.
New Beginnings is worked in rows and the pattern can be repeated to make any product you require and is supplied with ten charts. Motif Block A , Endless Knot is an overlay mosaic crochet chart using two colours and Motif Block B, Entwined Knots also uses two colours with the central knot and diamond surrounding it being different from Endless Knot. There are tapestry mosaic crochet charts for each motif, plus tapestry mosaic charts for adding both vertical and horizontal stripes to your project in different colours and a tapestry mosaic chart outlining the diamond in Motif B. If making a blanket or throw you have the choice to add an envelope border or a tasselled fringe. There are full instructions and video tutorials for both.
If making a rug, you do not require a border as the ends are incorporated into a tasseled fringe.
As the pattern is worked in rows, a simple envelope border can be added to trap the ends between the front and back borders. Or you can add a tasseled fringe which incorporates the ends of the mosaic rows. Instructions and video tutorials are included for both methods.
Also included are instructions on how to make a rug using either of the versions of New Beginnings, with information on how to calculate the yarn amount required for any size of rug.
If you are unsure how to read the mosaic crochet charts please refer to the video tutorial on daisyknots' YouTube channel which explains how to read the all important chart and how to work the stitches required in this fab type of crochet.
Please respect the many, many hours that have gone into designing, testing and editing this pattern by myself and my amazing team of testers, Carol, Caroline, Dianne, Nickie and Nina. Thank you ladies you are stars.
