Intro to Mosaic Crochet

Thanks for taking Intro to Mosaic Crochet. You learned a few basics of the overlay method of mosaic crochet. I hope I sparked your interest and creativity, and that you’ll want to learn more!

This page contains affiliate links which may pay me a small amount if you buy something through a link you click. This helps keep the website running, but it doesn’t cost you anything extra.

There are several different techniques that fall under the umbrella of “Mosaic Crochet”. We were crocheting the overlay method.

Dashes and Squares Cowl on mannequin

The Dashes and Squares Cowl pattern is available on Ravelry and Payhip. It uses fingering weight wool for a nice drape. And it’s worked in the round so you can avoid all those ends!

Looking for some more mosaic patterns? Here are a couple of Bonus Mosaic Crochet Charts you can download.

Since mosaic crochet is fairly new to me, too, I don’t have many tutorials yet. However, here are a few places you can go to find out more information:

Tinna Thorudottir Thorvaldar on YouTube has some great tutorials and amazing designs.

The private Facebook group Mosaic Crochet World is full of inspirational photos. Since it’s private, you have to request to join it. (You can mention that I sent you!)

Student Jean Melvin suggested Afrique Yarn as a source for long-color-changing yarn that is good for mosaic techniques.

If you enjoyed this class, please share that (and your projects) on social media, and if you can think of ways I can improve it, please send me an email. I’d love to hear from you. I can’t wait to see what you do with your new knowledge!

Barbara G. Walker has mosaic knitting charts in two of her Treasuries.

Just remember when you are working from a knitting mosaic chart not to get confused by having row numbers on both sides of the chart.

I have plans to teach more about mosaic crochet, but I’m just starting to explore this technique, as well. I have so many ideas to try out!
