Spirits of Life CAL: Part 2. Mosaic Adventure

Hello! How are you? If you are reading this, it means you are probably following Spirits of Life Wrap CAL. And you have probably finished Part 1 released last week. My Facebook feed was flooded with wonderfully beautiful pictures, and they made my heart happy. Part 1 was quite straightforward and easy to follow. And I hope today’s Part 2 will be not very challenging as well. If it’s first time you hear about Spirits of Life CAL, please, check General information HERE.

Are you prepared for a mosaic adventure? Today’s pattern uses Mosaic crochet. If you studied Important Notes for the CAL HERE and practiced a bit, you probably know already what is waiting for you. If not – don’t worry. I prepared detailed written instructions with pictures. And video, of course!

**IMPORTANT** What I would ask you to do is weigh all your colors again before and after Part 2 is finished. And carefully compare and put notes about used amounts into the table, which you can find in Part 1. Mosaic fabric should stay the same width as previous part. No flairs should appear on the edges. If you have them, it means your chains are not tight (and it also means you will use more yarn).

To solve this problem you have two options:

  1. To make all chains tighter, or
  2. Reduce all amounts of chains by one. So if pattern calls for ch2, make ch1 instead, and so on.

The fabric should not be too stiff and the edges should stay straight. These are basic rules for Part 2. Good news is that there are no tails to weave in. You will work with two colors only changing yarn after every other row. Without cutting it.

I’ve created a video tutorial to help you understand the placement of stitches on every row. As already mentioned, my video’s don’t have voice explanations (they are silent). I’ve got many questions about this on YouTube. And I have really many reasons to keep them as they are. I did my best to carefully show every stitch, and hopefully my video tutorial will be helpful.

For the needs of the video I have made a sample with just two repeats. You will be making more repeats for your own wrap (as per pattern). I marked first or last stitch in every repeat to show you how it looks. And then I am showing the end of every row. So in fact video does illustrate the entire pattern.

And I've added something extra this week. If you open video in YouTube and click "SHOW MORE" in description, you will see a break-down timing for every row. So now to find an exact row you don't need to watch/scroll the whole video :)

Please, take your time to block entire piece after Part 2 is finished. During next several weeks your wrap will be growing in different directions. And it will be very handy to keep dimensions under control.

EDIT: if your gauge is obviously different (smaller or bigger), please don't stretch your fabric too much to given measurements. Just block it "wisely" to get straight edges. And be careful with next parts so they fit together well. And don't worry :) But be aware that if your wrap is coming out bigger you will naturally need more yarn to finish it...

  2. Should Part 2 be worked as a separate piece, or should it be started on top of the last row of Part 1?

  4. Thank you so much for this lovely pattern! I love it so much!
    I have noticed mistakes in the French translation, for Row 8 : the * is missing at the end of the motive, and before the *, there should be 2 dc which are also missing.
    At the end of row 12, the last line is repeated.
    Anyway, these little mistakes are easy to see and correct, as the pattern is geometrical and easy to follow.
    Thank you for all your hard work and georgeous patterns!



    But as the pattern is very logical, it is easy to

  5. Just finished Part 2 and about to block it as suggested. What are the ideal dimensions. I understand the width won't change from Part 1, but what about the height. What should it be.

    Your instructions are great by the way, and I love the row by row video, very helpful when you wanted to jump to row 28.

  6. Sorry, I have just noticed that you have told us at the top of the week 2 notes. I was looking for a total for the whole piece, but this works fine, Part 2 is an additional 22 cm. Got it.
