“The first blooms of Spring always make my heart sing”
― S. Brown
Spring inspires me to get creative. I love filling my home with plants and starting seedlings for our garden. My children and I have a little plant obsession right now, and they give each of our plants names.
Seeing my children get excited about plants, naming them, taking care of them and even fighting over them inspired me to create them each Easter Bunny Plant Pot Covers for Easter. I love creating gift crochet ideas for Easter. Cactuses are great for kids if they are not so great at watering. Meet Stacy, Fred and Daphne.
If you’d prefer artificial plants, succulents are perfect. I re-used the succulents I made for my pumpkin cozies. The small succulent pot is perfect for the large size mosaic pot cover. You can check out how to make them HERE.
So I bet you’re wondering how easy it is to do mosaic crochet? Also, can a beginner do it? If you can hold the yarn, chain, make a double crochet and single crochet stitch you can easily make our Easter mosaic crochet pattern! I teach you how in my step-by-step tutorial on YouTube.
How to read a Mosaic Crochet Chart:
The mosaic chart is read from right to left for each round. Rounds are worked in alternating colours, as indicated on the left column. The entire round 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 round. 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.
When working mosaic crochet in the round, don’t cut colours. Drop off the colour at the end of the round and pick up new colour as you go. Colour is changed at the sl st join. Always tighten yarn tails when joining at the end of each round; this will keep the join invisible.
