January, 2015 Crochet Specialty of the Month Roundup: Intermeshing Crochet

Underground Crafter's Crochet Specialty of the Month: January 2015 intermeshing crochet roundup

Welcome to my themed blog series, Crochet Specialty of the Month! Each month in 2015, I’ll feature a specialized crochet technique, stitch pattern, or project type through several posts.

This post contains affiliate links.

This month, I launched the Crochet Specialty of the Month series with a focus on intermeshing crochet (also known as interlocking or double filet crochet). In case you missed any of the posts, I’m sharing a roundup today. Click on the image to link to the relevant blog post.

I started the month with an introduction to intermeshing crochet and a roundup of 4 free tutorials for beginners.

Roundup of free crochet intermeshing tutorials for beginners on Underground Crafter

I shared three interviews with designers who specialize in intermeshing crochet.

Interview with intermeshing crochet designer Tanis Galik on Underground Crafter
Tanis Galik, author of Interlocking Crochet.
Interview with double filet/intermeshing crochet/interlocking crochet designer Nickerjac on Underground Crafter
Nickerjac, U.K. designer and teacher focused on double filet crochet.
Barbara Mann in a double filet crochet serape and hat.
Barbara Mann (also known as mulenga), London designer and teacher specializing in double filet crochet.

And I also shared a free pattern which included intermeshing crochet.

And you can find a growing collection of intermeshing crochet inspiration on my Pinterest board!

Follow Underground Crafter’s board Intermeshing Crochet on Pinterest.

I hope you enjoyed this focus on intermeshing crochet as much as I did! I am actually working on a few intermeshing projects and I’m looking forward to sharing those soon!
