“Creativity doesn’t wait for that perfect moment. It fashions its own perfect moments out of ordinary ones.”
― Bruce Garrabrandt
Mosaic crochet is a beautiful and easy way to create colourwork patterns. It works up quickly and the results are stunning. The crochet technique involves working single crochet stitches in the back loop and working drop-down double crochet stitches to create the design.
The Desert Dunes Mosaic Pillow 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 Pillow has a coordinating blanket pattern you can check out HERE. The pattern also includes a baby blanket size.
So let’s go over the basics to get you started crocheting the Desert Dunes Mosaic pillow 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.
