 “To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it.”

― Kurt Vonnegut

Mosaic crochet is a beautiful and easy way to create colourwork patterns. It works up quickly and the results are stunning. I love how the baby blanket turned out by flipping the colour combo as seen in the picture below. Instead of working white as colour A, it’s been worked in a soft green with cream as colour B.

The Desert Dunes Mosaic Blanket is designed in Brava worsted from WeCrochet. You can go check out the gorgeous selection of colours Brava worsted offers HERE. Brava offers a smaller selection of Brava 500 if you prefer working from one large ball.

The Desert Dunes Mosaic Blanket has a coordinating pillow pattern you can check out HERE.

So let’s go over the basics to get you started crocheting the Desert Dunes Mosaic Blanket crochet pattern.

How to read a Crochet Mosaic Chart: 

The chart is read from right to left for each row.  Rows are worked in alternating colours, as indicated on the left column.  The entire row is worked in colour stated. Ignore the colours displayed in each box; this shows how the pattern will look; you will not change colour throughout a row. A blank box indicates you will work a sc in the blo. A box marked with an X indicates working a drop-down double crochet. Work a single crochet through both loops for the first and last stitch of a row. When working mosaic crochet in rows, you will cut the yarn at the end of every row..

The chart below is an example ONLY (not the blanket chart)

Special Stitches:

Drop-down Dc – Drop-Down Double Crochet – Work a double crochet in the front loop stitch 2 rows below.
