Mosaic Crochet

Mosaic crochet is such a beautiful crochet technique, but it’s also one that not that many have tried.

These 6 rules are the general rules you will find applying to most mosaic crochet patterns. With these in your toolbox, you can crochet the most beautiful mosaic crochet projects.

1) Only use 1 color per row/round: Even though mosaic crochet can look really complex, the good news is that you will actually use only 1 color per row/round.

2) Alternate color A and color B every other row/round: This means you will never use the same color two rows/rounds after each other.

3) Always work on the right side: No matter if you are working in rows or rounds, you will always have the right side of the work facing you.

4) In mosaic crochet you will only use 2 stitches: – Back loop single crochet – Long double crochet / double crochet worked in front loop 2 rows/rounds below

5) All single crochet stitches are worked in the back loop: The back loop single crochet stitches are worked at all times unless otherwise specified.

6) All double crochet stitches are worked in the front loop 2 rows/rounds below. Known as Long double crochet.
