If you’ve wanted to try mosaic crochet, the Diamond Drift Dishcloth is a great pattern to start with. Crocheting a dishcloth is a quick project that will teach you everything you need to tackle larger mosaic projects. Another simple beginner-friendly crochet pattern you can try is my Mug Rug HERE.

If you want to try a larger mosaic crochet pattern, you will love the Caribbean Coast Afghan. The pattern is very repetitive and is very similar to the Diamond Drift Dishcloth.

Choose your dishcloth colours to match your home decor. I love blue, so it was an easy choice for me! For this crochet dishcloth pattern, I used Dishie Cotton. It’s my favourite cotton to work with and has a great selection of colours.

How to read a Mosaic Crochet 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 dishcloth chart)
