Trellis Crochet-a-long (CAL) with Sam Linney

Welcome to our exciting new CAL with Sam Linney! Sam has designed a mosaic crochet square that you'll find very meditative to make once you've done a few! It can be made into beautiful cushions or if you're really ambitious, a gorgeous blanket for your home.

This CAL is suitable for anyone who knows the basic crochet stitches of double crochet and treble. So don't fret if you've just learned to crochet. You can do it! We'll have a series of online videos to help you with the centre circle and to get you started with the mosaic stitches as well as lots of support in a dedicated Facebook group and Zoom launch event!

The pattern is written out as well as charted and, although the charted version is easier to work with once you get going, many new-comers to mosaic crochet will find the written pattern easier to follow. 

Sam has designed her Trellis CAL to be a very affordable project. She used our Stylecraft Life DK yarn and has put together 4 coordinating bundles as suggestions, but you're free to select alternative colours or use DK yarn that you may have at home. Sam's pattern is free to all who purchase yarn from WOTE, if not, we can provide it for a nominal fee of £5. 

These are the colour combinations Sam put together for us:


Rose, Parchment, Fern

Cranberry mix, Cream, Fucshia

Copper, Silver grey, Teal

Mustard, Silver grey, Blue haze

Each finished square is 14 cm X 14 cm. A cushion uses 9 squares on each side and requires 1 ball of yarn in each colour to complete - total cost £9.90.

A blanket can be any size, but Sam is suggesting 100 squares (140 cm X 140 cm) so if you make this size, it will require 1 ball for the centre circles and 6 balls each of the other 2 colours with a bit more needed in the border colour of your choice. Total cost around £45

If you order your yarn online, please use the Notes link at checkout to let us know you're joining the CAL and we'll have the pattern ready for you :-)
